In addition, the new model has been upgraded with flex grooves designed to improve flexibility, allowing players to move more naturally. The Air Zoom Mercurial also features a ‘Tri-Star’ stud pattern and Vaporposite+ uppers. Together these elements work to help players move laterally while improving their grip.
The shoes have also been made from 20% recycled materials. For those interested, the Air Zoom Mercurial football boot is now available to purchase on Nike’s website and at select physical retailers.
