The Nike Mercurial Superfly V That Released Cheap Today

Given his Champions League final performance at the weekend, it seems like a really good time to profile Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest signature boot. Chapter 4 in the CR7 storyline comes with the tag “Forged For Greatness” and celebrates the transformation years in Ronaldo’s career. Visually, it features a dynamic transition fade from Molten Red around the lip to Metallic Silver with shades of blue mixed in on top.

Of all 4 boots released in the Nike Mercurial Superfly V FG Football Boots White/Black series to date, this one has the most notable visual appearance. The official colorway is listed. But there is so much more to the design, with an iridescent glow adding a different look depending on the angle you take while looking at the upper. It is a wild effect that offers hues of light blue and violet across the primary metallic gleam.

On the lateral side, Nike also add a signature CR7 logo, with the 7 offering the most specific visual effect in a silver color. On the heel, a light VII is added to signify Ronaldo’s signature #7. It all comes together in spectacular fashion, like as if a player in silver boots has walked across hot coals and brought serious heat to the bottom of the boot.

As far as performance on the fifth generation Superfly from sports-kicks.uk goes, 2018 Nike Mercurial Superfly V leveraged data-informed texture mapping to create a Flyknit “speed rib” 3D texture upper. The raised surface provides added friction between the surface of your foot and the ball. These ribs range in thickness from 1 millimeter to 2.5 millimeters, giving you an idea of how much definition runs through the forefoot. On this edition, they have integrated some white knit to create a more dynamic effect across the side of the boot, with a snow cap design along the front of the upper.
