Nike make their Superfly 8 in four different levels, Elite as worn by Pro players, their Pro, Academy and Club models, with different soles suited to different pitches. We have deals and best prices below for you on the new Nike Superfly, and the best discount codes.
The Elite represents the most premium execution of the Superfly in both material and technology and is the version worn by professional players. You can get the default FG model, SG-Pro Anti Clog (AC) designed for wet/muddy pitches and AG-Pro soleplates for artificial and synthetic pitches.
Firm Ground (Grass)
The FG model, is suitable for firm ground pitches, those are grass that is dry or a little wet and not too muddy. The shape of these studs mean they are not to be used on artificial pitches.
Soft Ground (Mud)
These are designed for wet/muddy pitches, the Anti Clog have a hydrophoic coating on the sole that keeps it wet and stops mud from sticking. The metal studs are not replacable as Nike removed the screw inserts to reduce the weight of the boot.
Mbappe Flames (FG)
Kylian Mbappe's own signature Superfly Elite, same technical aspects as the standard Elite FG pair with the KM Flames colours.
Ronaldo CR7 Superfly (FG)
Specifically for artificial grass the boots have 17 studs to absorb more pressure from the hard playing surfaces found on astro-turf and syntetic pitches. The layout takes pressure off your joints and is the only one warrantied for these fields.
Design Your Own Superfly Elite
Use the Nike ByYou service to create your own Superfly Elite with your choices of colours and design, with personalistion and your option of soleplate to suit your pitch.
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.
Kids Mbappe Flames (FG)
Mbappe’s Flame Superfly in children’s sizing, based on Kylian’s Elite model the Pro is similar in design and specifications but made for kids
The Academy boot is flexible with regard to natural grass and artificial grass as it has an MG (mixed ground) soleplate you can use on both, the patented Anti-clog technology is available for soft ground surfaces. Check out our Academy Superfly review here.

The Club is to the Academy what the Pro is to the Elite. These are best considered as kids boots, they are not suited to adults who should at least go for the Academy version and a little bit of quality, unless you were a very new or social player.

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.
