Mercurial Superfly Boots


Mercurial Superfly V

Nike's Superfly V boot was launched prior to the 2016 European Championship tournament and was debuted by the silos headline representative of Cristiano Ronaldo within the Champions League final against rivals Atletico Madrid, where he scored the winning penalty and saw Real Madrid hold aloft the prestigious trophy. Nike's previous Mercurial Superfly IV was used as platform for design criteria, taking inspiration from the older model, however implementing the latest of technology and construction methods making the boot faster than ever. Similar to that of Formula 1 race cars.

The upper of the new Superfly V boot once again features a Flyknit composition however the newest edition also adds a Speed Rib texture to enhance close control when dribbling and ball manipulation when striking for goal. Alongside the final layer of NikeSkin incorporated upon the Flyknit upper, a trademark Dynamic Fit collar again features at the top of the boot to enhance a sock-like, seamless, and responsive fit. Increasing the overall responsiveness and structure retention, Brio cables wrap the midfoot by connecting the sole plate with the lacing system which featured for the first time on its predecessor Superfly IV model. The Superfly V is designed for enhanced touch and control on the ball at high speeds as well as explosive acceleration and speed from the surface. The Vapor XI is also available for players wanting a more traditional model by lacking the Dynamic Fit collar however also leaves absent the responsive Brio cables.


One of the most notable features of the Superfly's long history was of course its carbon fibre sole plate, however the most recent fifth generation Superfly V opts to innovate the outsole by preferring a layered Nylon chassis of which is not only 40% lighter than the carbon fibre version however also follows the contour of the foot for an even higher level of responsiveness. Newly shaped chevron and arrowhead-like bladed studs also feature on the Nylon chassis to enhance both acceleration and braking efficiency. The Superfly V is available in both FG and SG Pro stud configurations for differing stages of the season so optimal traction is achieved consistently.
