Nike has dropped a classy version of the Mercurial Superfly360 to go with the PhantomVNM found in the Game Over Pack. This is a colorway we definitely haven’t seen the swoosh use before, so it adds a new look to the speed themed silo. The yellow striped graphic on the side of the boot provides a fast forward style effect, contrasting against the Wolf Grey upper…..in a complimentary way of course.
This is a boot that offers up all the trademarks of a signature Mercurial release. They are streamlined, lightweight and feature all the important tags associated with a Nike “Built for Complete Speed” boot. One of the key features of this Superfly silo is the fact they are built using a full Flyknit upper. The material actually wraps under the boot and there is a single layer of stitching along the spine of the soleplate that holds them together. Rather than applying Nike All Conditions Control (ACC) as an outer layer, ACC is embedded into the Flyknit—eliminating additional skin, while remaining tough against the elements.

As for the dynamic fit collar, the focus here is to produce a different type of fit around the ankle, one that utilizes an as one fit between foot and ankle in a more reduced format. The cut is low enough to allow for natural ankle motion through high-speed movements.
Underfoot, There is a lot of undulation featured on the insole of the Superfly VI, something we also saw on the Superfly V. This is part of the dynamic internal system used by Nike to create a “Racing-seat-like” fit. Coupled with a split soleplate chassis and Chevron studs, everything on these is built for explosive speed and sharp deceleration.
Finally, how do they fit? Compared to previous Mercurial releases, this boot is a lot more accommodating and provides some additional width to suit a wider audience. In saying that, they are still a Mercurial geared toward speed, so the silhouette is intended to be sleek and aerodynamic. It is the type of boot that if you have the chance to try them on, I’d definitely recommend doing so before buying.
