New NIke Mercurial Superfly V

Nike Welcomed In A New Pack Called 2016 Spark Brilliance

Nike introduced us to the 2016 Spark Brilliance Pack for Rio Olympic Games; a collection of New boots that would be worn by leading Nike Women's players at the Olympics later this summer. Today,they added the final piece to the collection in the form of a heat-map style NIke Mercurial Superfly V from

Nikeresearched which parts of the foot are most sensitive to touch and mapped those against high-touch zones gleaned from slow-motion film study of ball control. They then turned this into a heat map,with the more defined red areas representing slightly thicker material in that particular area.

As a result,the upper features peaks and troughs of varying dimensions. These peaks and troughs utilize the same amount of materials as the original NIke Mercurial Superfly V FG - Blue Tint-Racer Blue-Volt-Bright Crimson through the use of negative space. The highest peaks are in the premium touch areas,aligned with where the foot should come in contact with the ball.

Designed to accommodate the shape of the ankle bone while leveraging a thicker Flyknit structure for additional coverage,the revamped collar also dips lower on the tendon for comfort. The tongue-less solution now features light padding under the laces for coverage in this high contact area.

The NIke Mercurial Superfly V is designed to emphasize an evolution in touch and traction,something that is reflected in the visual aesthetics. Designer Phil Woodman and his team re-imagined the original NIke Mercurial Superfly V silhouette to further the boot's tactility and tighten the gap between the brain and ball.
