The new Nike Mercurial Vapor IX’s have been spotted all over the place. Players across the world have embraced the latest version of the wildly popular Vapor series and there is good reason why. Bryan and I recently reviewed the latest version of the Vapors for The Gear Show and the review just went live today. You can see the review after the jump.
We are giving away a pair, and trust me when I tell you that you want a pair of these. You really want a pair of these boots. Watch the video to the end and you will get some incredibly simple directions to enter the contest to win a pair of the Nike Mercurial Vapor IX’s.
Shooting these reviews is a blast. It’s tough to imagine a better day at the office then running around a field, kicking a ball and reviewing the latest and greatest soccer products. So I wanted to capture a little bit of what one of these days is like. So I took some pictures when we would have some downtime or when Bryan was shooting and I wasn’t. I think this is something I’ll be doing more of on each shoot going forward. In addition to the video, check out some images from this particular shoot day.
Nike Mercurial Vapor IX review and behind the scenes images after the break.
In addition to being filmed for The Gear Show, Bryan felt he wasn’t getting enough camera time so he started filming himself. Actually that’s not even a little bit true. Bryan was capturing his own BTS footage for his site.
Office supplies. Just as with any job, there are some items that are key in getting the job done. Here were a few of ours from this particular shoot.
Bryan was testing the performance aspect of these boots and must have jumped over these for 15 minutes. I took pictures and encouraged him.
During a break in the shooting Bryan was framing a shot for his BTS footage from the shoot. While he was shooting this, I was shooting him doing this. Perspective in perspective.
Ultimately, this is what the day was about. Testing out a new boot and hopefully giving some insight to viewers and consumers. Good times as always. On to the next one!
