"The Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 Elite FG features a new look with specialized components to let you play your fastest from start to finish. A stretchy collar provides extra support, and the innovative plate provides instant responsiveness for quicker cuts at high speeds."

Nike identified four key areas of focus when developing the new generation of the Mercurial - Superfly 8 and Vapor 14.

Vapor version

In terms of fit, the boots aim to provide a construction that feels like a "natural extension of the foot".

On top of that, the Nike Mercurial Vapor 14 and Superfly 8 boots offer a natural touch, "helping to maintain control at high speeds".

The updated sole plate is built for improved traction, focusing on quick acceleration and "breaking in all directions".

Rounding it off, the style of the latest gen of the Nike Mercurials is "brighter, lighter and faster" than before.
