Nike Mercurial Superfly Lieke Martens 2017 Signature Boots Released
Nike yesterday night celebrated a distinguished double as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lieke Martens both won the 2017 FIFA The Best Player Titles. To mark Lieke Martens' incredible year of achievements such as her important rule in the Netherlands triumph at the 2017 European Championships, Nike has created a signature 'Lieke' Mercurial Superfly V soccer boot.
Martens was named Player of the Euro 2017 Tournament, saying at the time, "All we want is for women's football to be as popular and successful as possible. This could be the start of something special. My teammates and I are so proud of what we have achieved and hopefully our success will lead to even more young girls playing football," says Martens.
Nike Mercurial Superfly V Lieke Martens Boots
These are the special cleats Nike created to honor Lieke Martens' 2017 The Best title and their incredible year.
The boot's color palette pays homage to the Oranje Leeuwinnen (Orange Lionesses) and the Leeuwinne icon appears on the heel and on the sockliner. The sole plate of the boot features a color shift from silver into blue, then fading in Orange around the forefoot. The lace aglets read, "1st," in recognition of her team's first European Championship, as well as the individual hardware she's accumulated. The Swoosh has a multi-color orange to blue fade with a platinum-hued outline.
Martens's first name in all caps, "LIEKE," appears on the medial side of the boot where "NIKE" normally appears. The platinum color of the letters is a nod to her most recent trophy acquisition.
The Nike Mercurial Superfly V Lieke Martens signature soccer cleat will be not available to buy.
