In 1996, Nike partnered with the world’s most decorated international side, the Brasilian National Team. It was time to create a boot worthy of their caliber of play. Ronaldo, the squad’s young striker, was chosen as the muse. On the pitch, he was patient—stalking, waiting for the right moment. Then, when opportunity arose, he’d strike, accelerating to the ball with velocity that the game had never seen before. With the goal in his sights, Ronaldo would change in nature. He was, in short, mercurial.
In late April at the Salon de Reinos in Madrid, Nike revealed its fastest and most innovative boot to date, the Mercurial Superfly. But today’s footballers don’t just play on grass and aren’t simply looking for innovation for that surface. With that in mind, Nike introduces the Elastico Superfly IC – a shoe that brings all the innovation and technological benefits of the Mercurial Superfly to the court.
This June and July Nike will unleash four of the most innovative pieces of performance footwear that the beautiful game has ever seen. The Hypervenom, Tiempo V, Magista and Mercurial Superfly will converge on the feet of football’s greatest players on sport’s greatest stage.
Continuing the storied history of the boot that transformed the industry, Nike launches the new generation of the Mercurial to match the speed of today’s game.
