The Latest Mercurial Vapor Gets OG Superfly Treatment

March 13, 2020 - The Nike Mercurial Vapor "Future DNA Mercurial" brings classic Nike Football design to one of the brand’s latest on-pitch innovations.

Originally released in 2009, the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly was the lightest, fastest iteration of the Nike Mercurial at the time, and served as a glimpse into the future of Nike football boots. For the first time on a boot, the original Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly incorporated next-generation Nike Flywire technology in a streamlined upper. The purpose of the filament and fiber technology was to serve as a second skin, and offer a lightweight, stronger, more dynamic fit. It also housed a carbon fiber sole plate that reacted to the need for speed with strategically-configured blades for superior footing and quick cuts in any direction.

Paying tribute to its predecessor’s Max Orange and Metallic Silver colorway — debuting only on the pitch by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo — the Nike Mercurial Vapor "Future DNA Mercurial" sees modern upgrades on a classically fast boot with the addition of high-tenacity yarns on the upper (an elevated version of the Nike Flywire technology used on the original), which keeps the boot from stretching. The 2020 iteration also has All Conditions Control to prevent the boot from being porous.

The boot is the second release from Nike Football’s Future DNA Pack, in which current performance boots pay homage to a classic Nike Football design. 

The Nike Mercurial Vapor "Future DNA Mercurial" is available March 13 on nike.com.
