Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly Soccer Boots

Description courtesy of Kitbag:

The Nike Vapor Superfly will be manufactured using the most advanced technology in sports research. Designed to have the speed and flexibility the flywire technology uses high tensile strength fibres to provide strength to the foot for added support.
Nike Flywire technology utilises high-strength threads that act like cables on a suspension bridge, delivering engineered support precisely where it’s needed. This revolutionary technology transforms how footwear is engineered by reducing the amount of material required for the upper of a football boot to the bare minimum without compromising on durability or integrity and support.

The strength of Nike Flywire technology is created through optimal placement of threads providing support where players need it most, coupled with highly tuned composite upper package that locks the threads in place, allowing the upper to adapt to the motion of the foot. The composite upper package uses an ultra-thin Teijin skin to cover the top of the foot, and together with the Flywire threads locks the foot in place.

The Mercurial Vapor Superfly also incorporates a revolutionary lightweight traction sole plate and a carbon fibre chassis that shave precious grams from the boot, ensuring the player remains quicker than ever without compromising integrity or traction.

Nike assert that the Mercurial Vapor Superfly is their lightest and fastest football boot ever, a fit with the modern game that is now being played faster every season with a need for quicker reactions and acceleration.

Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly Technology:

* Engineered Flywire Thread is positioned to meet the needs of the fastest players, providing optimal support precisely where the foot needs it.

* Composite Upper combines five ultra thin layers that encase the Flywire threads to create a finely tuned shell that functions in harmony with the foot and improves comfort.

* Teijin Synthetic Skin exterior surface, only 300 microns thick, to ensure the best possible fit and feel.

* Flywire, Composite Upper and Teijin Skin combine to create Nike’s thinnest football upper to date and provide a uncompromising foot to boot, boot to ball fit.

* Lightweight Traction Sole Plates incorporate a higher density inner structure providing the necessary integrity yet allowing the extraction of unnecessary weight from the centre of the studs. These super-light, super-strong direct injected dual-density molded studs deliver optimal traction.

* 7-layer carbon composite outsole shaves off weight while delivering maximum resilience, strength and flexibility.

* Minimal Internal Heel Counter provides added integrity in the heel for ultra explosive players.

* One-piece Seamless Heel Pod Liner offers added comfort and fit.

To be worn by world stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Inter striker Ibrahimovic and Robinho.
