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.

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.
