Your choices of Mercurial Superfly
Superfly 8 Elite
Most expensive, full 360° Vaporposite upper, high-cut collar, snappy Aerotrak soleplate, as worn by PROs like Cristiano Ronaldo & Kylian Mbappe..
The Elite represents the most premium execution of the Superfly in both material and technology and is the version worn by professional players. Aside from the default FG model, the Elite also has SG-Pro Anti Clog (AC) designed for wet/muddy pitches and AG soleplates for artificial and synthetic pitches. Both soleplates have been redesigned in 2021, with the SG-Pro AC making the steel studs irreplaceable in order to remove any screw-in inserts and help make the soleplate lighter. The AG plate for artificial pitches has its microgrooves increased to 17 studs to absorb more pressure from hard playing surfaces.
Superfly 8 Pro
Second-level Mercurial Superfly, toned-down in terms of specs and price but still retains the essence of the top-end Elite model.
The Pro, while still bringing the vibes of the Elite version, has some of the features toned down for price considerations, like not being as thin and pliable as the Elite's Vaporposite upper and the Aerotrak not as responsive as that of the top-end model. The Pro has specific soleplate models for natural grass and artifical grass.
Superfly 8 Academy
Another more affordable option, no longer has Vaporposite construction and instead has a solid synthetic meshed upper
The Academy has variants available for indoor courts and turf pitches, it also has Nike's patented Anti-clog technology available for soft ground surfaces, the Academy is flexible with regard to natural grass and artificial grass as it has an MG (mixed ground) soleplate. Check out our Academy Superfly review here. Where significant changes are noticeable is on the Academy and Club levels, which both have a bulky upper construction and aesthetics inspired by the looks of the Elite boot.
Superfly 8 Club
Cheapest Superfly option, extremely toned down in terms of meshed texturing but presents more structure; perfect for beginners/young players
The Club is for the Academy what the Pro is for the Elite. The club has the same Academy soleplate models except for the SG-Pro AC and they are really a kids boots, not suited to adults who should at least go for the Academy version and that little bit of quality, unless you were a very social player.
2021 Superfly Deals
Mercurial Superfly 7 (2019)
The Superfly 7 were released in July 2019, high-tenacity yarns reinforced the Flyknit upper for a soft yet well-structured Superfly boot, and an Aerotrak arrow spine on the soleplate made them very responsive and fast-feeling. The Superfly 7 included feature colourways like the white Mercurial Dream Speed III with black accents, the pink Mbappe Rosa taking inspiration from the Berry Vapor IV, and the bright blue Sancho SE11. Regular releases included the orange-yellow Daybreak Superfly, shiny chromic Neighbourhood boot, and the flashy crimson Future Lab.
Mercurial Superfly VI (2018)
Nike introduced the Superfly 6 on February 7, 2018, it was the first Superfly to have a split-sole construction and to have the Flyknit yarns coated with ACC rather than having the ACC on top of the upper. The release of the Superfly 360 came with the Born Mercurial orange colourway pack, designers Virgil Abloh and Kim Jones had their respective takes of an orange Superfly 6, with the former designing his with eye-catching circles and the latter with a safari-skin graphic. Released in the year of a World Cup, Nike had the Superfly 6 included in the Just Do It pack dedicated for the 2018 tournament; the Just Do It dressed the boot in a pearlescent white accented by orange hues.
Mercurial Superfly V (2016)
The Superfly 5 debuted on May 17, 2016 under the Spark Brilliance football pack; the launch colourway has a red-purple split, black accents radiating from the collar, heel, and speed ribs adorns the boot. This Superfly is a Flyknit boot that has textured Speed Ribs wrapping around the upper. CR7's Chapter 5: Cut to Brilliance, Chapter 4: Forged to Greatness, and Chapter 3: Discovery are all based on the Superfly 5 template. Cut to Brilliance displays a multi-coloured graphic of diamond cuts on a grey upper while the Forged to greatness has a fiery orange base a silver top with a metallic tone. Discovery's colours reflect his days with Sporting Lisbon. Lock In, Let Loose combined yellow and black in a Superfly 5 and the Fire and Ice Pack had the boots in red and blue colours to be worn by players depending on their kit
Mercurial Superfly IV (2014)
Superfly 4 saw Nike Flyknit for the first time on the Mercurial range and brio cables on the sides of the boot connected the laces to the sole and acted like slingshots to propel the player forward. Once again, Ronaldo dominated with his first Chapters releases, named Savage Beauty and Natural Diamond. The IV launched on April 25, 2014, and the debut colourway became part of the pack for the World Cup that year. Some of the distinct colourways included the Urban Lilac in the Liquid Chrome Pack, the Hyper Pink of the Lightning Storm Pack and the Bright Crimson of the Intense Heat Pack. Superfly 4 also brought the What The Mercurial which combined popular Mercurial colourways into one mashed up boot.
Mercurial Superfly III (2011)
Superfly 3 were released in April 2011, they were more of a cosmetic update to the Superfly 2, the boot debuted with a violet upper with a white Swoosh and tonal heel. Alongside the launch colourway was a CR7 exclusive black-on-black safari print with yellow accents. A more streamlined purple Superfly 3 was released later that year in the form of the Court Purple/Metallic Luster-Magenta. It was also in late 2011 that another CR7 signature colourway appeared; with a red pinstripes and black block stripes combination on a grey upper.
Mercurial Superfly II (2010)
Nike launched the Superfly 2 on February 24, 2010; introducing the Nike SENSE studs that expanded or retracted depending on pressure, weight, and surface condition. The first Superfly 2 had violet poppy/obsidian/orange colourway. This Mercurial generation gave CR7 his first signature boot and arguably one, if not the most iconic Ronaldo colourways; the Safari print, Nike would remake those in 2020 to celebrate ten years since the original boots. A distinct feature of the Superfly 2 was the diamond cut-like graphic on the medial side. The Superfly 2 had a large orange or black Swoosh located on the toe box and moving towards the lateral side. The colours on each side would usually be different, like the cactus/white/anthracite and the Voltage Cherry/Obsidian/Silver.
Mercurial Superfly (2009)
Nike unveiled the Superfly 1 in February 2009. It was the boot that made Cristiano Ronaldo the face of the Nike Mercurial. The first edition of the Superfly featured an ultra-thin Teijin synthetic reinforced by Nike Flywire cables for lockdown and structure. It also introduced a carbon fibre soleplate. The original max orange/abyss/metallic platinum colourway was able to debut on the field but not on retail, prompting Nike to remake the colourway 11 years later with the Future DNA Mercurial Vapor 13. It ultimately debuted on retail in black with a volt yellow Swoosh.
The common theme of the Mercurial Superfly is to offer players a lightweight, responsive & overall fast feeling boot when laced-up and strapped-in. Nike's Mercurial Superfly has seen many innovative technologies incorporated within its construction.
In 2014, Nike added a Dynamic Fit Collar onto the Superfly IV which has become a mainstay for the silo and has seen many other brands take inspiration from the mid-cut silhouette. The launch of the Superfly 6 saw the height of the collar drop lower, as popularised by Cristiano Ronaldo in his own versions.
Originally launched in 2009, Nike added the highly popular Mercurial Superfly to compliment its Mercurial Vapor counterpart. Nike usually update the Superfly silo every two years to coincide with the FIFA World Cup and European Championships.
