The Mercurial Dream Speed series is going strong in 2024 as it opens the year with its 8th boot. And as always, CR7 and Mbappe lead a select group of players to wear their the MDS008 in their respective Superfly and Vapor boots. Past MDS boots had gone on to different colour looks-yellow, red, white, purple, to name a few. MDS008 stakes out its place in the Dream Speed collection by introducing green for the first time in the series.
Nike had the Green Speed Mercurials before, but that was more about sustainability rather than the looks. This time around, it is truly green speed for the MDS008 as the boot goes all in with a Green Strike dominant colourway. With the brandings and logos in black, the boot shares the same colour combination as the Phantom VSN 2 Future Lab II Pack.
On top of the black accents, Nike include pops of volt green details, courtesy of the strips going over the upper. There’s also these additional streaks of regular green found on the forefoot. Speaking of streaks, the MDS008 gets the Swoosh to be applied with a streaking look. The theme of this release is maintained throughout the outsole.
