(Picture above) Mercurial Vapor Superfly III provides better traction control to allow better acceleration on the field.

Introducing Nike's Mercurial Vapor Superfly III claimed to be its most innovative football boot to date for its cutting edge technology designed for quick acceleration.

“In a game that’s being played faster every season, speed is imperative and players need to be faster with the ball. They need to accelerate, react and change the game quicker than the opposition.” explained the renowned sports equipment giants in a release.

The design of this innovative boots includes consultation with some of the world’s fastest players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Alexandre Pato and resulred a boot that gives players the traction, fit and control to make that one chance count.


Delivering lightweight strength and a responsive performance on the pitch, the seventh generation Mercurial Vapor Superfly III is an industry-defining boot that incorporates Nike’s own Flywire technology.

Nike Flywire technology utilizes high-strength threads that act like cables on a suspension bridge, delivering engineered support where it is needed.

This revolutionary technology transforms how footwear is engineered by reducing the amount of material required for the upper of a shoe to the bare minimum without compromising on durability and support.

Nike found that players slipping in leading competitions like world championship finals – 845 slipping events over 63 games, or roughly 14 per game at one major tournamentcreated a renewed focus on boot performance, traction and fit.

The Mercurial Vapor Superfly III delivers adaptive traction technology and pressure-activated studs in the forefoot that extend up to 3 mm when needed, allowing players to speed up or slow down and make rapid changes of direction in adverse pitch conditions.

Said Mr Vijaya Kumar Jayaraj, Marketing Manager for Nike Singapore on this revolutionized boots:“Today’s highly technical and physical game is about exploiting the slightest gap, capitalizing on a momentary lapse of concentration and keeping the opposition on the back foot.

“Testing with elite players in some of Europe’s top leagues revealed that speed around a defender and the ability to make quick changes in direction were critical. Toe-off traction and minimizing slippage are top priorities.”
