The New Mercurial Lifts the Veil on Speed

January 19, 2021 - The new Nike Mercurial is an excellent example of Nike’s “better is temporary ethos.”

Led by athlete insight, the boot takes on four areas of focus:

  1. Fit: an upper that feels like a natural extension of the foot
  2. Touch: natural touch, helping athletes to maintain control at high speeds
  3. Traction: quick acceleration and breaking in all directions
  4. 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 colorway 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 launch January 25 to Nike Members, with full release February 1.
