Another Superfly III colorway release from Nike, this one coming in a Trace Blue/Anthracite/Cyber/Volt. It is funny to say, but this design is somewhat “taking it down a notch” in Nike’s books. Rather than employing extremely outlandish colors, as we have seen in recent times, they have gone with a simple yet bright primary color. It is difficult to tell from the images, but there is a slight hint of blue running through the almost white upper. Add in the some Volt detailing and you get a pretty inviting final product!
This release comes right off the heels of the Court Purple/Magenta from earlier in the week. Both offer vibrant looks, and I am sure both will receive their own large share of fans. This look is clean and fresh, while the Volt detailing adds a whole other dynamic. The biggest concern lies in keeping them clean, with the light colorway sure to pick up some scuffs – you need to promise to clean them after each use if you want to get full value out of them!
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.
Price wise, the Superfly comes in at $399.99. You can also choose from the Vapor VII at $219.99, or the more economical option of Miracle II at $129.99.
