Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 Pro FG: Designed for those who go fast

Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 Pro FG shoe logo

There is no doubt that those who are fast, agile, and strategic are the ones that emerge victorious from intense battles on the pitch. Nike understands this, so the Mercurial Superfly 8 Pro FG is equipped with the following speed features:  

Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 Pro FG shoe midsole

Excellent traction. The strategically configurated chevron stud pattern has the player covered as far as grip and stability goes. Also, the soleplate is flexible enough to be springy, which in turn allows it to return high levels of energy.

Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 Pro FG toebox

Light and supportive structure. The upper materials are sturdy and really supportive without adding on too much weight. The ankle cuff also provides more containment without being too restrictive.

Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 Pro FG heel

Insole for cushioning. To keep the feet from pain and fatigue, the shoe is equipped with a soft insole.

Cheaper in price, NEVER inferior in performance quality

To make it more affordable, the Pro version of the Mercurial Superfly 8 FG ditches the high-tech materials that make up this model's Elite version.

Instead, it uses proven and tested shoe materials and tech. While the components are a lot cheaper, the resulting soccer cleat cannot be overlooked when it comes to on-pitch performance.

It serves as enduring proof that soccer cleats need not be flashy and sophisticated--though it also wouldn't if they are!--to be considered effective.
