Complete Rip-Off of The Nike Mercurial Superfly V? Joma Champion Max 2017-2018 Boots Review

One month ago, Spanish brand Joma released their first-ever high-cut football boot, the Joma Champion Max. Now well-known soccer cleats reviewer Josh from Soccer Reviews For You has done a review of the Joma Champion Max soccer cleats, confirming that they are stolen from the Nike Mercurial Superfly V football boots.



Along the black and silver colorway of the Joma Champion Max football boots that we have written about, Joma also released a more striking blue, yellow and black colorway of the Joma Champion Max 2017-2018 football boots. They are the same as the black colorway tech-wise.

Joma Champion Max Football Boots Review - A Bad Copy of the Nike Mercurial Superfly V

Here is the full video review of the Joma Champion Max football shoes.


In comparison with the Nike Mercurial Superfly V football boots, the upper of the Joma Champion Max football boots is stiffer and less flexible than the original Flyknit one. It also comes without Nike's Flywire cables in the upper, providing less lockdown than the original boot.


In fact, Joma tried to copy all details of the upper Nike Mercurial Superfly 5 football boots, resulting in one of the most audacious copy we have seen so far.


The sole plate of the Joma Champion Max, however, is not copied from the Nike Mercurial Superfly V but stolen from the Adidas X 17+ soccer cleats.

The insole of the Joma Champion Max is the only part not copied from the Adidas X / Nike Mercurial Superfly.

However, the fit of the Joma Champion Max soccer shoes is not nearly as good as the one from the Nike Mercurial Superfly V. The are also heavier as the Nike Mercurial Superfly. So Josh comes to the conclusion that you should not buy them.



The Joma Champion Max football boots retail at a price of 150 Euro, which makes them half as expensive as the Nike Mercurial Superfly V soccer shoes (They are available for less than 200 Euro in Nike's sale).

Should Adidas or Nike sue Joma for stealing their boots? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
