The term Mercurial is all about making sudden unpredictable changes, which is the perfect description of these innovative football boots. The first revolutionized Nike Mercurial Superfly football boots were released in 2009, and at that time these boots were the lightest in the game, with an incredible weight of 185 grams. To illustrate the weight, a regular pair of socks weighs about 60-120 grams. The Superfly was created to revolutionize speed without compromising with the weight, strength and stability. Ever since the first generation of the Mercurial Superfly, Nike has kept upgrading the series with more generations and new technologies. This was the start of something big and Nike has continued the tradition of making these boots representing explosive speed.
When you are one of the biggest football companies in the world, you have to mark your territory. The ideas behind the Nike Superfly was indeed different and innovative. Nowadays the game is nothing like it used to be. The pace of the game keeps changing and so does the Mercurial Superfly series and that is what this silo is all about, making players as fast as possible.
The world has witnessed some incredible moments from players, wearing the Superfly football boots. One of the biggest stars, is Cristiano Ronaldo. From a young lad playing a friendly match against Manchester United, to become one of the world’s best football players of all time. Maybe it is coincidental that the name Ronaldo was born into the Nike family, but the Portuguese version of Ronaldo or CR7, surely made an impact by representing Nike. His style of play was a true match for the Mercurial silo, light on his feet, quick turns and explosive speed. His talent was something else, and that talent had led him to loads of trophies for club, country and himself. He broke all kinds of records and scored inhuman goals, and this was achieved with the help of the Nike Mercurial Superfly.
Neymar Jr, Kylian Mbappé and Eden Hazard to name a few, are all players who have played in the Nike Mercurial Superfly collection. The series were created so players like these could improve and show their magic on the pitch and accomplish what nobody thought was possible. It makes it a lot easier to dribble past defenders when you had the feeling of moving like a feather.
The Nike Mercurial Superfly was the foundation of fast and that speaks clearly when we look at the players who are wearing the boots. One of the reasons why these football boots are suitable for the fast and dynamic player is because of the innovative technologies. We will break it down for you.
The first generation of the Nike Mercurial Superfly was the first use of the Flyknit technology in a football boot. This unique technology is integrated within almost every Nike football silo, and it is one of Nike’s remarkable innovations. The ambition was to get rid of unnecessary materials, to make it light, flexible and stable. The Flyknit tech is a technology supported by small, thin and strong flywire cables on the upper part of the boots. The material acts and adapts within your quick movements and multidirectional tractions on the pitch and will also provide a comforting fit throughout the boot.
One of the trademarks of the Mercurial Superfly, is the Dynamic Fit Collar extension. This integrated sock-like fit is giving the player a true connection with the boots. The fit is optimized and it gives you a feeling of becoming one with the football boots. The fit is crucial for any footballer, and this technology will adapt and support your fit, giving the speedster as much freedom as possible while dribbling through easy targets.
Studs were made to give the player a good connection and grip on the pitch. The Nike Mercurial Superfly series have had a variety of stud configurations over the past generations. The low-weighted studs are placed specifically for a reason so your tractions and accelerations won’t affect your speed when turning and stopping in any different directions. This is a major key performance for any quick player, who makes all kinds of runs and quick steps. The boot is less like a hoof, more like a claw where the plate delivers traction exactly where you need it.
