At a global media event featuring footballer Cristiano Ronaldo in London, Nike today unveiled the Mercurial Vapor SuperFly II, a lightweight boot featuring a new, unique adaptive traction system designed for explosive acceleration. The Mercurial Vapor SuperFly II features a reengineered upper for enhanced fit and ball control for fast feet. The vibrant ultra-violet color boosts visibility on the pitch. The outcome is not only a well designed soccer shoe, but also a high performance sports shoe.

“Next-generation Nike Flywire technology incorporated into the boot’s streamlined upper provides a lightweight, strong and more dynamic fit. The carbon composite tuned chassis provides a lightweight platform with traction elements and allows players to stay closer to the ground.”

The boot will be released globally from April 21st. Check out the video here below, giving you some further background information on the boot, as well as info on the creation.
