The Superfly series has a huge army of fans across the globe, and if you're one of them we know you love them to be bright, flashy and in-your-face colours. Checking out these Cherry versions, part of Nike's Fall seasonal releases, we're sure you're going to love these too, especially once they start appearing en masse on pitch.
Following the summer's Bright Cactus colourway, it seems Nike are not letting up with the striking colour options for Mercurial fans!
Of course, not much has changed tech wise in this Elite level football boot. You still get the excellent carbon-fiber chassis and tougher Flywire upper as part of the package, with this general release version featuring the Nike Sense Stud firm ground sole plate option.
OK, so we know you've probably already seen these as the usual suspect images hit cyberspace - but here at the SoccerBible we like to get you up close and personal with the latest boots, so check out our full gallery of Vapor Superfly II photos.
With all the peripheral-vision claims of the Nike Elite Series World Cup pack, these Superfly II boots go back to what Nike does best - bold, loud and eye-catching colours. The Cherry and Silver mix, added to with those vibrant orange studs, is sure to make any Mercurial player stand out on pitch.
The major innovation for the Superfly II football boots was the development of the Nike Sense adaptive traction technology. Current in the Elite Superfly II football boots, designers created an adaptive stud that can extend and retract by up to 3mm, based on ground conditions and pressure exerted by the player.
This new release Superfly continues with the SenseStud design, even though the professional elite seem unconvinced of the studs advantages yet (see: Cristiano Ronaldo)
The Nike Elite Mercurial Superfly II football boots maintain the desired close fit around the foot without compromising on durability or support. Next-generation Nike Flywire technology incorporated into the boot's streamlined upper provides the unique lightweight, strong and more dynamic fit.
Nike designers created a Mercurial football boot that provides new levels of performance with nearly four years of game analysis, biomechanical studies and player testing. The new Cherry coloured Elite Nike Vapor Superfly II football boots feature a stronger and tougher performance upper to improve on-field visibility and a re-engineered outsole to deliver lightweight performance for the world's Elite players.
The explosive Nike Elite Mercurial Vapor Superfly II football boots are the fastest, most innovative and technologically advanced football boots to hit the pitch. Available to pre-order now in the US, with the European release of the Nike Elite football boots following on 24th September ahead of a early October on shelf release.
Of course, the unfortunate side to such an Elite level boot is that they will continue to retail for around £275 GBP / $400 USD a pair when they hit selected stores and Nike stores.
