Nike Mercurial

The sportswear label launch their revolutionary football boot

Introducing the Mercurial vapor Superfly II, a revolutionary football boot that features Nike adaptive traction technology and helps players improve their performance with expert tips and training through Nike Football+.

The lightweight shoe featuring a new, unique adaptive traction system designed for explosive acceleration aims to be perfectly adapted for football players, using a reengineered upper for enhanced fit and ball control while the vibrant ultra-violet colour boosts visibility on the pitch.

In developing the 'Nike Sense' adaptive traction technology, their designers have created an adaptive stud that can extend and retract by up to 3mm, based on ground conditions and pressure exerted by the player. Directionally positioned blades maximise cutting and allow for quick changes of direction, whilst secondary toe traction provides added toe-off power for those first critical steps. Next-generation Nike Flywire technology incorporated into the boot’s streamlined upper provides a lightweight, strong and more dynamic fit and the carbon composite tuned chassis provides a lightweight platform with traction elements and allows players to stay closer to the ground.

The Mercurial Vapor SuperFly II also gives consumers access to the training insights of the world’s top players, teams and coaches through Nike Football+. Each pair of boots comes with a unique user code that can be used to unlock trade secrets from inside the game and the next installment of Nike Football+, Master Speed training content on In addition to these Nike Football+ Master Speed programs, footballers will have access to country-specific Nike Football+ activities like training sessions, trial events and player appearances. Nike Football+ is also available as an app for the iPhone and iPod Touch on iTunes.
