All-New 'Stealth' Nike Flyknit Ultra Football Boot Released

Nike today released the all-new Black / Silver Metallic Nike Flyknit Ultra soccer boots, together with the second launch paint job, the Black and Gold Nike Flyknit Ultra edition, which will be exclusively worn by Hazard.



Nike Flyknit Ultra - Black / Black / Black

This is the Nike Flyknit Ultra soccer boot in black and metallic silver.


A no-nonsense look - like so much from the Swoosh recently - the first Nike Flyknit Ultra soccer cleat colorway has an all-black upper with understated Nike and 'Flyknit Ultra' brandings on the outside. A Distinct pattern of chevrons covers most of the upper. Finally, a dark metallic-silver sole plate rounds off the design.



Features-wise, the Nike Flyknit Ultra cleats are a previews of what's to come for the 2018 World Cup. In a similar way to e.g. the Green Speed 2 boots, which was the brand's first model to feature ACC tech, the Nike Flyknit Ultra football boots can be likened to the all-Flyknit Mercurial Vapor 12 that will be launched early next year.


They have a one-piece Flyknit upper with a low-cut construction and horizontal ridges, similar to Mercurial Vapor 11 and Superfly 5. The boot sits on the outsole known from the current version of the Mercurial, which includes mostly chevron-shaped studs.

Nike Flyknit Ultra - Features

  • One-piece Flyknit upper with textured speed ribs
  • 3D Speed Plate
  • Embossed speed ribs provide ball awareness and control
  • Nike Grip system to keep foot from slipping inside the boot.



One of two debut colors, 2,500 pairs of the limited-edition black and silver Nike Mercurial Ultra Flyknit Vapor will be available (1,500 pairs available in a black/metallic gold colorway). The RRP is USD 250 (GBP 200, EUR 250). The black / turquoise and black / red paint jobs we informed about earlier will be released as well, but likely at a later date.
