Nike Mercurial Vapor/Superfly Dragonfly

Today Nike has announced its newest Mercurial release - the Nike Mercurial Vapor/Superfly Dragonfly.

An example of Nike’s “better is temporary ethos.” the new boots design was Led by athlete insight with four main areas of focus:

Fit: an upper that feels like a natural extension of the foot
Touch: natural touch, helping athletes to maintain control at high speeds
Traction: quick acceleration and breaking in all directions
Style: brighter, lighter and faster



With these in mind, the design of the new Mercurial draws on the natural geometry of a Dragonfly’s wing as guide to driving maximum efficiency with minimal weight. This results in a lightweight, efficient boot stripped to 7 key components, each made visible for an arresting aesthetic that relays the pure essentials of speed.



Evolving from the 2019 Mercurial 360, the boot introduces a new Vaporposite upper that combines a grippy grid mesh with premium lining for ball control at high speeds. Underfoot the Nike Aerotrak plate brings responsiveness for quick cuts and acceleration.



The bright launch colourway is made up of a digital psychedelic palette, inspired by a computer motherboard, which pays homage to iconic Mercurials over the past 23 years.



The new Nike Mercurial Vapor/Superfly Dragonfly will be worn by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Ada Hegerberg and will launch to Nike Members on Monday 25th January, with full release on Monday 1st February.
