We have already brushed upon the incredibly vibrant Nike MercurialX ‘Street’ release that hit the market last month, but we figured they were well worth a follow-up with new images! For those that play indoor soccer, this is a shoe that brings explosive speed to the small-sided game with a locked-down fit and low-profile traction. Basically, it is full blown speed remixed for small sided soccer.
When it comes to that locked-down fit, it is all about the Dynamic Fit collar that slips over your ankle for a seamless fit, locking your foot in place. It is the same fit and shape offered by the Superfly series, ensuring players familiar with the high-profile speed boot have something to compare to. From that mid-cut collar down through where a tongue would normally be, things a little different. Why? Because this is a tongue-less Flyknit design, with Flywire cables seamlessly integrated to provide stretch and support.

To round out the upper. you get a one-piece micro-textured Flyknit for a barefoot touch. And in typical Nike fashion, things have been dramatically altered to create an extremely unique look. By now you will have noticed that they feature a multi-color, Mulberry/Wolf Grey/Hyper Pink woven Flyknit material. It makes for an unmistakable look, although it is similar to one we have seen somewhere before.
Even so, this version creates a completely different look thanks to the black mid-cut collar and the additional definition through the midfoot created by FlyWire.
And then there is that sole, again designed to provide explosive speed in the right circumstances. The non-marking indoor/court (IC) outsole provides precise traction for instant acceleration and quick moves when playing indoors or on the street.
To be honest, I’m surprised these are still available on the market a week after release. Under normal circumstances, with a special edition release like these, players would have them snapped up in a heartbeat. But as of posting, there are plenty of sizes still available. What are your thoughts on this colorway design?
