Purple Nike Mercurial Superfly V 2016-17 Boots Released
Nike today followed up the first three paint jobs of its new Mercurial Superfly V football boots with a predominantly purple effort that forms part of the new Floodlights Pack. Officially dubbed 'Purple Dynasty', the Floodlights Pack Nike Mercurial Superfly 5 cleats feature orange trim and will be available to buy from October 3, 2016.
Nike Mercurial Superfly V - Purple Dynasty / Hyper Grape / Orange
This image shows the striking purple Nike Mercurial Superfly 5 boots for the 2016-2017 season from the Floodlights Pack soccer boot collection.
Predominantly purple, the September 2016 Nike Mercurial Superfly V soccer cleats combine this with orange trim. The secondary color is used for all brandings on the Purple Dynasty Nike Mercurial Superfly 5 football boots, as well as for detailing on the new Mercurial's trademark 'speed-rib' 3D texture.
Additionally, this new Nike Mercurial Superfly cleat features a subtle gradient from the relatively dark Purple Dynasty at the back towards the more dynamic Hyper Grape at the front. The inside of the upcoming Nike Mercurial Superfly V colorway features a darker shade of purple at the front, too.
Like their predecessor, the Floodlights Pack Nike Mercurial Superfly soccer cleats aim to provide a sock-like fit with a knitted upper and heightened Dynamic Fit collar. The aforementioned speed-rib texture is worked into the Flyknit upper of the Purple Dynasty Nike Mercurial Superfly V 2016-2017 football shoes to improve ball control and touch in critical areas.
Additionally, the sole plate of the Nike Mercurial Superfly V boots has been completely reworked; it even is 40% lighter thanks to the use of Nylon instead of carbon-fiber. The stud configuration is also new on the Nike Mercurial Superfly 2016-2017 boot: all studs have the same triangular shape but are rotated differently.

Available from October 3, 2016, the purple Nike Mercurial Superfly V football boots retail at €290 ($300, £240).
