Ready for the Nike "What the Mercurial?" drop?


Written by Mathias Boughey-Svendsen

The Nike “What the Mercurial?” boot is a good shout, as the single craziest and most sensational launch in the last few years. Are you ready to try and get your hands on a pair?

The Limited Edition boots will be going online on our site in 30 minutes from when this blog was published (Launching 9:00 AM CEST, 12th of May, 2016). The excitement for the drop has been building for several days now, and to celebrate the 18 years of Mercurial heritage our photographers gave the boots their always awesome treatment in the studio and snapped a few shots for your viewing pleasure.

In case you haven’t heard the full story of the Nike “What the Mercurial?” yet, then it is a mash-up of 16 of the most memorable Mercurial colourways in the speed silo’s history. The tribute features everything from elements of the very earliest Mercurials, like the first Nike Mercurial Vapor I and Alpha Project dots to the new, as well as a snippet of the equally brilliant Black History Month Superfly from 2015. If you want to hear more about the full concept and see all the boots included, then you can read our blog from the launch right here.
