Distractions Disappear with Nike Mercurial Flylite SuperLock Shin Guards

Shin guards are often regarded as a necessary evil. The protection is required, but any additional weight or shifting within the sock can create discomfort. To deliver the benefit of shin guards without the distractions, Nike created the game-changing new Mercurial Flylite SuperLock shin guards.

The new shin guards feature small spikes on top of the face of the guard that safely pierce the sock, locking it into place. The entire surface area of the guard is covered with these safe, lightweight spikes for an aggressive look and precision placement, no strap or sleeve needed.

Generative impact dispersion webbing ensures the shin guards are minimalist while also providing the necessary protection.

Nike Mercurial Flylite SuperLock shin guards will be available Fall 2018.
