Nike Mercurial 25th Anniversary Boots Released

The second Nike Mercurial Superfly 9 Elite XXV anniversary boots were launched today. They are available as Superfly and Vapor versions and are not strictly limited, in contrast to the more spectacular first pair.

The first-ever Nike Mercurial was released in time for the 1998 World Cup in France, where it was famously worn by Ronaldo.

The special-edition Nike Mercurial XXV boots are predominantly "Metallic Silver", combined with "Hyper Pink" for the Superfly and "Volt" for the Vapor. All these colors are typical for the Mercurial silo.

The Special Edition Nike Mercurial 25th Anniversary features an XXV Mercurial logo on the upper. A shimmering all-over logo design featuring the Swoosh, the Mercurial logo, and a special MV logo runs the length of the upper.

It won't be the first time for Nike to release a remake of the 1998 Mercurial, having already done so on multiple occasions including for the 15th anniversary in 2013.
