The latest colorway to be released in the Nike Mercurial series is this bright Volt/Imperial Purple/Retro Volt. It seems like Nike’s quest of late has been to bring easy to spot colorways onto the pitch, with the previous Orange release going down a real treat with fans.
In my opinion, this release actually has what I would deem to be a citrus look about them and it reminds me of the Citron colorway we saw in the Vapor IV series. There is obviously more to this release in terms of technology and color, but they do have some similarities. I like the overall look and they are sure to look good in-game. The , the black detailing on the soleplate, in particular, offers a great look. We have seen several top players wearing them in training over the past few weeks.
The Superfly III offers a tidy package but at a pretty high-end price. The two advancements with this boot are the use of Flywire, and the adjustable studs. Flywire is designed to act like the support cables on a bridge by taking and holding the majority of the weight of the upper. This, in turn, allows Nike to decrease the required materials and produce a lighter boot. The adaptive studs offer a very contentious addition to the boot. In theory, the studs have the ability to dig into a firm natural surface as you put your pressure down on the sole. It is something that is very difficult to actually see in action as the boot needs to be in contact with a surface as you put your full weight down.
