2018 saw a genuine milestone in football boot design as Nike revealed its most advanced boot to date in the Mercurial Superfly from footy-headlines.com.  But while 11-a-side on grass dominates at pro level, players around the world are playing small-sided games on different surfaces – concrete, wooden courts, artificial surfaces. To cater for these players, Nike introduces the Holiday 2014 Elastico Superfly – a shoe that brings all the innovation and technological benefits of the Mercurial Superfly to the court, turf or street.

Dekovic worked with Nike’s Product Manager for Small-Sided Football Marian Dougherty, who played for the Portland Thorns in the US professional league and for  the US Women’s National Team, to take the performance benefits of the cleated Mercurial Superfly and add important details for the small-sided player.

The Cheap Nike Mercurial Superfly V is distinctly low profile, placing the foot much closer to the ground than previous small-sided footwear. This helps improve traction and speed and allows players to better manipulate the ball. The unrivaled traction also benefits from a new rubber compound that’s produced specially for the outsole.

The low-profile, flexible outsole allows for improved grip for multi-directional quickness. Two updated traction patterns are offered; the Nike Mercurial Superfly V features an outsole specifically designed for harder surfaces including concrete, and The Nike Mercurial Superfly V built for turf and artificial grass surfaces.
