Nike Mercurial Superfly V



The pinnacle of Nike's innovation, the new Mercurial Superfly V retails at $300 and is worn on the pitch by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Anthony Martial (via Football Boots DB). Like its predecessor, it comes with a knitted upper and a Dynamic Fit collar.

Nike Mercurial Vapor XI



The second highest-priced model and the only one besides the Superfly to receive significant on-pitch support from professionals, the new Nike Mercurial Vapor 11 is similarly akin to its predecessor, the Mercurial Vapor 10. Retailing at $230, it has a Teijin microfiber upper and boasts a tongue-less construction.
