Nike Mercurial Superfly V Carli Lloyd Cleats Revealed

Celebrating her winning the 2016 FIFA World Player of the Year award, Nike has presented US international Carli Lloyd with a pair of special-edition Nike Mercurial Superfly V cleats.

This image shows the special-edition Nike Mercurial Superfly 5 soccer boots made by Nike for Carli Lloyd.



Based on the new women's colorway of the Mercurial, the special-edition Carli Lloyd Nike Mercurial Superfly 2017 football boots are predominantly Wolf Grey with accents in Gamma Blue. Inspired by Lloyd's work ethic and character, the soccer cleats feature motivational prints across the upper, as well as a "World Player of the Year 2016" inscription on the outstep.



Interestingly, and perhaps creating an all-around better look, the Carli Lloyd edition of the latest Nike Mercurial Superfly V boots comes with a grey outsole instead of blue, while the Mercurial writing on the heel is white instead of purple.



It is unlikely that the special-edition Nike Mercurial Superfly V Carli Lloyd cleats will go on sale, but something similar to last year, when a few pairs of the "Leave Your Legacy" boots that celebrated Lloyd winning the 2015 edition were given away in a raffle, could happen again.
