At this stage, we are all familiar with the dynamic mid-cut collar and the performance characteristics is brings to the table. Well, today Nike introduced a whole new direction for their small sided game with NikeFootballX, featuring remixed MagistaX and MercurialX boots designed with small-sided style and surfaces in mind.

These boots were designed to provide the ultimate fit, touch and traction for specific styles of play. The Magista is crafted for creative, unstoppable playmakers. The Mercurial is built for explosive speed. In the words of Max Blau, VP Nike Football Footwear:

NikeFootballX merges Nike’s pinnacle boot technology with design elements unique to small-sided football. We’ve met with small-sided players all over the world and they want the same performance benefits Magista and Mercurial provide, but with outsoles and colorways unique to their game.

As of today, the MercurialX and the MagistaX are both available from soccer.com.

NikeFootballX boots feature recycled Nike Grind rubber on high abrasion and drag areas for enhanced durability. Cushioning against hard surfaces has also been taken into consideration. MagistaX features a responsive Lunarlon midsole while MercurialX has low-profile Phylon cushioning. Both boots will be available in indoor court (IC) and turf (TF) versions with outsoles that cater not only to the relevant surface, but the underfoot play prevalent in small-sided football.

The remixed MagistaX and MercurialX carry an “X” as a nod to the combined number of players in a game of five-a-side. Both boots will debut in the “Street” colorway, inspired by the footballers Nike’s design team met with who play at night by streetlight. The boots feature a stealth black geometric graphic that is reflective under the lights.

The MercurialX and the MagistaX are both currently available from soccer.com.
