Nike celebrates 20 years of Mercurial with new Air Max 270s

  • Posted 1 month Ago

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of its groundbreaking Mercurial boot, Nike has dug around in its archives to reissue some of the most striking and memorable designs from the boots' last two decades.

Designs include Ronaldo's famous 1998 World Cup Mercurial boot, as well as Cristiano Ronaldo's 2010 purple Mercurial Vapor Superfly II and 2014 Mercurial Superfly IV, all of which have been updated with contemporary 360 innovation to bring them into the current day. All the boots will be available in both the Vapor and Superfly silhouettes.

For the first time ever, the Mercurial has also been combined with the Air Max using NIKEiD, resulting in a capsule collection of Air Max 270s featuring a bold on-pitch aesthetic.
