Nike Elastico Superfly IC – Modify Your Indoor Game!

Elastico Superfly

If you are an indoor player looking to seriously modify your indoor game, then Nike has a brand new shoe for you to check out. Officially released these week and available to buy for $150, the Nike Elastico Superfly IC is the first indoor shoe of its kind, designed with a dynamic mid-cut collar. This is an advanced shoe that brings all the innovation and technological benefits of the Mercurial Superfly to the court.

Working with former Portland Thorns and USWNT player Marian Dougherty, who now plays a key role in the development of Nike’s Football footwear, Dekovic took the performance benefits of the cleated Mercurial Superfly and added some important details for the small-sided player. The upper is almost identical to the Mercurial Superfly firm ground shoe developed for Cristiano Ronado, while the shoe is distinctly low-profile meaning the foot is much closer to the ground than on previous Elasticos. Dougherty stated that:

This helps improve traction and speed and allows players to manipulate the ball. The unrivaled traction also benefits from a new rubber compound we have produced to make the outsole and an updated traction pattern. The flexibility and shorter distance between the foot and ground mean this helps the player get closer to the sensation of playing barefoot.

In addition to the above design details, the shoe features an extra layer of NIKESKIN in areas where small-sided footballers experience additional abrasion on their footwear. Visually, these are some unusual looking indoor shoes and they are definitely going to look extremely odd when worn on court.
