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.

Who are the Mercurial Superfly designed for? - Nike designed the Mercurial for the explosive player, a player like Cristiano Ronaldo who uses their pace, unpredictability and speed and to get past the opposition, they have a need for speed.

Does the Superfly have a sock collar? - Yes, this is the only difference between the Superfly 360 and the Vapor XII, the Supefly has a Dynamic Fit Collar, that covers your ankle, designed to be an extension of the boot, to make your leg and boot feel like one. This collar is shorter than on previous Superfly, similar to the custom collar preferred by CR7.

Will the Mercurial soleplate flake off? - Yes Nike do say that the chrome color on the outsole will wear off over time, how quickly and badly depends on whether you play on soft, wet pitches or dry hard pitches, very dry or artifical pitches will be worst.

Can I wear these on grass/mud/3g/turf...? - Yes you can, there are different versions for diferrent pitches, book a consultation with us and we can help you work out which is best for you between Superfly FG, AG, SG or Anti-clog.

Does the Superfly VI have flywire? - No, suprisingly Nike decided not to use FlyWire with the Superfly 360, this was a popular feature on the Supefly V and some players may notice a little less lockdown because of this. Many players will find that this does mean the Superfly VI are that little bit more comfortable to wear than previous Mercurial.

What is the Upper of the Superfly - It made from one piece of flyknit to make it very flexible and feel like a second skin. This flyknit is then treated with NikeSkin, an ultra thin polyurethane coating combined with performance mesh topped with Nike's ACC (all conditions control) treatment. On the forefoot a microtexture has been added to improve grip on the ball.
