Flyknit allows your foot to merge with the boot
The Cheap Mercurial Superfly Football Shoe is made with Nike's Flyknit, which allows for your boot to be extremely flexible and delivers unparalleled comfort, as your feet will merge with the boots. The touch is nice and tight in the Flyknit upper, where the tongue has been removed to bring you as close to the ball as possible. The entire upper is a one piece design, as the modern footballer uses the entire foot to control the ball, and not just some special zones. The flyknit upper comes with a special 3D structure that increases the friction between football boot and football, and thereby improves your touch. In addition, this friction is an advantage when dribbling at high speed, as well as for your passing and strikes.
Brio-cables for ultimate lockdown
To ensure that the upper does not collapse and also to provide good stability in the boot, Nike have woven the brio-cables into the upper. The Brio-cables serve to keep your foot in place inside the boot and help provide the unique fit that you get from the Superfly. Furthermore, the Brio-cables will react to even the smallest movement, which results in a more optimal use of your speed.
Dynamic Fit Collar provides the optimal fit
The Dynamic Fit Collar is the part of the boot that continues up your ankle on your Mercurial Superfly. The extension of the football boot is one of the most remarkable changes and the sock-like fit helps to lock your foot in place. Hereby, you get the feeling that the football boots is an extension of your legs and your body. You are automatically more aware of your feet and the interaction with the football is heightened.
A lightweight carbon sole for explosive speed
THe New Nike Mercurial Superfly would not be complete without a carbon fiber sole and Nike are not letting us down. The sole is made of a two-layer carbon fiber material. The carbon material makes the Superfly very flexible in certain areas of the sole, while also following the natural flex of your foot, and hereby Nike have ensured that you will have rigidity and flexibility right where you need it.
The Mercurial series is also known for its bladed studs that help you accelerate. These are naturally also found on the new Superfly and the stud configuration further helps your aggressive direction changes and adds to your explosive speed in all directions.
