Nike Mercurial.. Where should we even start?

Nike Mercurial is a pair of boots, which have set the standards for football boots for many years. It’s always in front, when it comes to innovation, speed and awesome designs and colourways. If you take a look at the list of players, who have worn Mercurial, you quickly get a feeling of the Merc’s greatness. It has been and are still worn by many great players, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Ronaldo (O Fenômeno), Kylian Mbappe, Ada Hegerberg, Thierry Henry, Didier Drogba, Bruno Fernandes, Franck Ribéry, Erling Haaland, Marcus Rashford, Eden Hazard, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and we could go on and on and on.

Nike Mercurial Dragonfly

Now it’s time for a new Nike Mercurial to enter the stage. This one is called “Nike Mercurial Dragonfly”. In our opinion it is the greatest name for a Mercurial ever. Try and say “Nike Mercurial Superfly Dragonfly” - doesn’t it sound awesome? And when we look at the new Merc', we definitely think it’s looking awesome too.

Mercurial Dragonfly is all about technology, fit, transparency and moving faster (together). In order to encapsulate that into one boot, Nike has removed any unnecessary layers and revealed the raw beauty of their innovation. All the components, which are designed for speed, are therefore exposed and made visible to us. Sounds crazy and innovative to us - and it looks high-tech as well! Check it out on the pictures below.

High-tech football boot

Mercurial has always been known for its state of the art innovations and technologies. Nike Mercurial Dragonfly is certainly not disappointing us. This time, Nike is even allowing us to look inside the boot, so we can see every layer of it and every innovation it contains. On top of that, they have even marked the seven most prominent details on the Mercurial with numbers in order to highlight them.

1. Avail Q Lining = Premium Microfiber that forms to your foot

2. Speed Band = Forefoot lockdown to maximize first step speed

3. Vamp Lining = Lightweight cushioning precisely where your need it

4. Toe Reinforcer = Anatomical shape for a barefoot feel

5. Speed Collar Package = Soft foam to minimize friction

6. Speed Wings = Medial speed icons

7. Flyknit = Adaptability for a close fit
