No More Synthetic High-End Nike Boots - Nike to Release Only One, 'Mid-Cut' Flyknit Nike FTR10 Boot

There will be only one high-end version of the all-new Nike FTR 10 football boots, we can exclusively reveal. The Nike FTR10 2018 soccer cleats are set for a launch after the 2018 World Cup (late July / early August 2018)

Nike To Release Only 'Mid-Cut' Nike FTR10 Soccer Cleats

There won't be a traditional low-cut synthetic version of the new Nike FTR 10 cleats.

The Nike FTR10 soccer boots replace Nike's current control silo, the Nike Magista. But while the Nike Magista football boot is available both as modern high-cut knitted Flyknit version (Nike Magista Obra II Elite DF) and as traditional low-cut synthetic version (Nike Magista Obra II Elite - better known as Nike Magista Opus), there will be only one high-end, 'mid-cut' version of the Nike FTR10 boot and no traditional synthetic one.

The brand-new Nike Mercurial 360 Superfly & Vapor Boots are actually identical apart from the collar

In fact, from the the launch of the Nike FTR10 football boots, there won't be a traditional low-cut synthetic Nike high-end soccer boot available anymore as the Swoosh already ditched the low-cut synthetic Nike Mercurial Vapor XI in favor of the knitted low-cut Nike Mercurial Vapor 360.

It remains to be seen if players such as Iniesta, Busquets, Casimiro and Eriksen, who are currently wearing the traditional low-cut synthetic Nike Magista Obra II Elite (without DF 'Dynamic Fit' collar), will seamlessly switch to the all-new Nike FTR10 football boots (many Nike Mercurial Vapor players still wear the old-gen synthetic boots).
