For 20 years, Nike has designed Mercurial boots for the fastest players in the game, featuring game-changing innovations. Today, we go further and introduce the most innovative football boot in the world, the Mercurial 360. The Mercurial 360, which is featured in the Mercurial Superfly 360 and Mercurial Vapor 360, is the first Nike product to feature Flyknit around the entire foot for a second skin fit, eliminating the need for a traditional soleplate. Without a soleplate, the sockliner interlocks with a new internal chassis that is tuned for maximum responsiveness.
Cristiano Ronaldo, embraced the Mercurial Superfly 360 right away. “My first reaction when I saw the new Mercurial was…the best boots ever! They fit straight away. The material, the design, the new technology, it’s amazing,” he says.
The plush feel of the Mercurial 360 can also be attributed to advancements in Nike All Conditions Control (ACC). Previously, ACC was applied on top of the finished Flyknit product, creating a thin layer. Now, ACC is embedded into the yarns prior to knitting, eliminating the additional skin without compromising the performance benefit. The result is a matte finish on a texturized upper that is softer to the touch but can still battle the elements.
Get a good look at both offerings above and be advised that the Nike Mercurial Superfly 360 and Mercurial Vapor 360 will debut on pitch next week and will be available February 14 on Nike.com.
