Nike will release their Mercurial Superfly 360 'LVL UP' football boots this week


Nike will be releasing their new Mercurial Superfly 360 'LVL UP' football boots this week.

The global sports company has been offering some incredible designs to supporters this month and their latest model comes just days after their rerelease of the Nike T90 Laser I.

This time, they have turned their attention to the Superfly and have unveiled their first special edition of a boot that is celebrating over 20 years in the spotlight.

Over the years, they have often been associated with some of the fastest in the world players, allowing them to become popular amongst wingers and forwards alike. 

Players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe and Alexis Sanchez have worn some of the latest releases and have helped to make the Superfly one of the most loved boots in Nike's arsenal.

New Superfly release

The new model has incorporated a number of signature features from previous Superfly boots from the last 10 years.

A simplistic background design has been married with a bold and colourful band along the toe, sitting behind the iconic swoosh down the laces.

Nike have used a white-on-white safari print to cover the boots, harking back to the Nike Air Safari running shoe that was originally released in 1987.


Classic and colourful design

That very same design is present on the Nike logo and has become something of a fixture on Superfly boots over the last decade.

Safari, silverware, cheetah, galaxy, gold, and lava-inspired patterns have been used to create the stand-out stripe and hark back to the bold designs that have punctuated the Superfly's history.

That very same design - blended with metallics, volt and neon hues - is also present from the underfoot to the heal, rising up to the tongue.

It's certainly a bold colour scheme, but it works brilliantly against the classic white canvas and is already proving a hit with football fans.

The boots are pencilled in to be released on March 31, although the price and exact number of pairs are yet to be confirmed. Watch this space.
