Lieke Martens’ Special Edition Mercurial Superfly

Lieke Martens Special Edition Nike Mercurial Superfly

Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t the only player who received a celebratory pair of Nike boots yesterday! Fresh off being named the was FIFA best women’s player for 2017, Lieke Martens was presented with a special edition pair of Mercurial Superfly from Nike.

In addition to her stellar club play with FC Barcelona, Martens helped lead the Netherlands to triumph at the 2017 European Championships. Martens was also named Player of the Tournament.

These Mercurial Superfly are pretty special, with only Martins receiving pairs. In other words, they won’t be available for retail.  The boot’s color palette pays homage to the Oranje Leeuwinnen (Orange Lionesses) and the Leeuwinne icon appears on the heel and on the sockliner. A up-close look will introduce you to the lace aglets that read, “1st,” in recognition of her team’s first European Championship, as well as the individual hardware she’s accumulated. The Swoosh has a multi-color orange to blue fade with a platinum-hued outline.

Flip them over and the soleplate of the boot features a color shift from silver into blue, then fading in Orange around the forefoot.

Finally, and most notably, Martens’s first name in all caps, “LIEKE,” appears on the medial side of the boot where “NIKE” normally appears. The standout platinum color of the letters is a nod to her most recent trophy acquisition.
