Cheap Nike Mercurial Superfly V
According to Lee, the first opportunity in the design process of the Cheap Nike Mercurial Superfly V was to better incorporate the shape of the foot "to create a true one-to-one fit." Thus, the sole plate of the Nike Mercurial Superfly was completely reworked. Replacing the previous carbon plate, the new sole plate is 40% lighter and was engineered as a single-layer chassis, contrary to previous multi-layer efforts.

The Flyknit upper of the Nike Mercurial Superfly V boots was also overhauled to include the so-called "speed rib" 3D texture, designed to provide improved friction between the shoe and the ball.“Previously, the Mercurial had a uniform surface on the upper,” says Lee. “We analyzed how speed-orientated players tend to dribble with the lateral side as they sprint, switching to the instep of the medial side for shooting, and adjusted the speed ribs accordingly.”

Cristiano Ronaldo, the face of the Nike Mercurial line, also had something to say on the all-new sole plate and traction of the Mercurial Superfly V.

Another important aspect in the development of the Mercurial Superfly V was the braking system: “Having the confidence to stop on a dime is a critical component of speed,” clarifies Lee. “If players don’t know for certain they can quickly come to a full stop as needed, they slow down as a precaution, just as you would when driving a car.”
