Who should buy the Nike MercurialX Finale II Turf
Originally coming from its popular predecessors, the Elastico Finale and the first MercurialX Finale Turf cleat, massive overhauls have been observed since the release of the second version of the MercurialX Finale Turf. There are noticeable changes and new technologies incorporated for an upgraded turf cleat. You would want to choose this pair if:
- You're looking to try an improved MercurialX Turf and feel the changes and upgrades.
- You're big on Nike MercurialX technologies that promote better ball contact and control and overall experience
Nike's super outsole configuration
A rubber material is the main outsole unit for MercurialX Finale II turf. Its components include the multiple Tri-Star Studs arranged in the soleplate to perform the best possible traction in a turf surface.
The Flex Grooves also play a key role in the rubber plate, providing the outsole its needed flexibility for dynamic foot movements.
MercurialX Finale Turf's midsole setup
The midsole construction is designed with a Phylon foam. Its spongy nature brings flexibility and responsiveness when running on turf grounds.
With its dual-density properties, durability is potentially guaranteed even in such abrasive surface.
Excellent upper construction of Nike MercurialX
The turf cleat’s overall look can be likened to that of the silos in the Nike Mercurial Vapor and Superfly due to its Speed Ribs texture dominantly seen in lateral, medial and forefoot area. The said texture is not just installed for aesthetic purposes, but ultimately for improved ball control. Friction is enhanced when the ball touches the horizontal ribs.
The Nike Skin Technology is fused in the upper, synthetic material as a Polyurethane film. It leaves a thin next-to-skin sensation distinctly helpful when touching the ball.
The Neoprene Collar keeps the cleat in a tongueless structure. It is an elastic material that extends to cover the whole instep area. With this extension, the foot is intended to feel like being wrapped comfortably for overall lockdown.
Personalized central lockdown of Nike MercurialX
On top of the collar is a central lacing system that can be adjusted to tailor fit to one’s preference. It goes in handy when players prefer a tighter, more foot-hugging sensation from the stretchable Neoprene.
A pull tag is installed in the upper heel area to aid in slipping the cleat on with ease.
