Model: Air Max 270
Key Features: Newly-engineered zoned mesh upper for flex and breathability, a molded dual-density foam for a smooth transition from heel to forefoot, and full-volume newly-engineered Air Max unit for greater impact absorption. Along with Ronaldo’s legendary France 1998 Mercurial design, sneakerheads can now choose one of five retro Mercurial colorways on NIKEiD.
Release Date: N/A
Editor’s Notes: This isn’t the first time the original Ronaldo’s 1998 Mercurial boot has been transformed into a sneaker. Though that won’t stop us from getting excited for the World Cup thanks to this Mercurial Heritage pack.
Celebrating 20 years of Mercurial, NIKEiD is bringing back iconic designs from World Cups of the past on the latest Air Max silhouette, the 270. The 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014 World Cups are all represented as these iconic designs are brought back to life.
Along with the street-ready versions, Nike will be dropping on-pitch versions of each of the five World Cup colorways in both the Mercurial Superfly 360 and Mercurial Vapo 360 iterations.
