Dynamic Fit Collar is used on the Mercurial Superfly, Magista Obra and the latest Hypervenom Phantom II. It is the part of the boots that covers your ankles, but continues to cover more. The extension of the boot is one of the most significant changes in recent launches, and contributes to locking in your feet in the boots. Hence the reason why some describes it like wearing a sock. You will become more aware of the interaction between your feet and the ball, allowing you to raise your game.
