For the first time, Nike is providing players with the original ’98 Mercurial Vapor style as an option on NIKEiD. In total, their are four different styles of Mercurial Superfly Heritage iD to choose from. Mercurial’s iconic Silver/Yellow/Blue colorway — worn by Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, commonly known as Ronaldo, upon the boot’s 1998 debut in France — leading the line-up.
Also available are Black/White and Black/Blue styles that also draw inspiration from that first boot. An additional White/Silver option boasts a volt Swoosh, adding a modern twist to the design.
And as you’d expect, these mesh the heritage styling with with premier performance updates, including a lightweight carbon-fiber plate for explosive speed. Flyknit and a Dynamic Fit Collar — both of which were introduced to the Mercurial in 2014 — provide enhanced touch and a locked-in feel.
Players can customize their choice Superfly Heritage iD by selecting from three plate options to fit their performance needs. They can also add a number, up to five letters or one of 16 national flags to the side of the upper.
The Nike Mercurial Superfly Heritage iD will be available for a limited time beginning today, exclusively at nike.com/NIKEiD.
