He can be seen sporting the Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII FG Pro Football Boots Bright Mango/Metallic Dark Grey.

What boots does Morne Steyn wear?
Morne wears the latest version of the Nike Mercurial Vapor Boot, the Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII FG Pro Football Boots Bright Mango/Metallic Dark Grey. He has gone for the firm ground version though they are also available in soft ground.
Morne as a kicker likes these boots and is very successful in them, though as it is just him we have not included them in our kickers page. The Vapor mango is also available in a kids version.
Key Points of the Mercurial
The Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII has uppers made of soft, extra-thin teijin synthetic leather which adjusts to the natural foot shape of the wearer to offer unrivalled comfort. The firm ground boot favoured by Steyn is built on a lightweight, contoured, full length glass fiber chassis sole unit with duel TPU injected blades which are said to be designed to deliver unrivalled acceleration. There are twin heel studs on either boot for maximum penetration and stability. This is said to be ideal for Steyn when kicking from hand and off the tee.
