Next-Gen Nike Mercurial Superfly VI Elite 2018 Boots Revealed

Set to star at the 2018 World Cup, Nike this evening officially revealed the next generation Nike Mercurial Superfly 6, or 'Superfly 360' how it's also called. A bold look that is certain to grab everyone's attention on the field, the Nike Mercurial Superfly VI Elite football boots will be available to buy starting 14 February, 2018.

Nike Mercurial Superfly VI - Total Orange / Black / Total Orange / Volt

This is the orange and black Nike Mercurial Superfly 6 Elite 2018 football boot.

A very clean look, the Nike Mercurial Superfly VI alternative launch colorway is almost entirely orange, with a black sole plate and black brandings, both featuring a more or less subtle iridescent effect.

The Swooshes, a small one in the toe area and a larger one on the instep have a subtle striped pattern. Finally, a bit of Volt on the inside of the collar completes the eye-catching design of the 'Total Orange' Nike Mercurial Superfly 6 2018 boots.

Tech-wise, the Nike Mercurial Superfly VI / 360 boots introduce a few changes, while retaining the key features of the previous generations. They have a one-piece Flyknit upper with a Dynamic Fit collar and are said to be building on the Flyknit Ultra model that was debuted in Fall 2017.

A first for Nike Flyknit, the material on the new Mercurial Superfly 6 wraps around the foot, something that Nike says will help provide a closer fit and less movement inside the shoe. It also enables the brand to reduce the material used for the sole plate by splitting the front and rear parts. This feature, called 'Flyknit 360' gives the boot its 'Superfly 360' name and will find its way to more Nike footwear products in the future.

The 3-D upper structure that has been compared to what could be found on Adidas' X 16 model, is one of the most prominent new features of the Nike Mercurial Superfly 6, alongside the split sole plate.

Revealed on February 7 2018, the orange Nike Mercurial Superfly VI Elite soccer cleats retail at USD 300 (EUR 290, GBP 250). They will be available to buy starting 14 February, 2018.
