Nike’s Mercurial soccer boots are one of the sleekest products the company makes. They’d pretty much have to be; those 90 minutes demand a lot out of the feet, especially when you’re reliant on lethal speed and precision striking like notable Mercurial wearers Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Roberto Carlos, or Didier Drogba.
Unfortunately for the average fan, this style could only be admired from afar. Unlike, say, basketball or tennis, specialty soccer shoes aren’t an ideal candidate for fashion wear
The Nike Free Flyknit Mercurial translates the look of the on-pitch performance cleat for the streets, the terraces, and maybe even a less expensive patch of grass, if you’re feeling up for a spontaneous game.
