Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II FG Elite Cleats (Black/Circuit Orange/Black)

Back in October, Nike released the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II  Safari Edition of the Cristiano Ronaldo's signature shoe. Now the sportwear giant has released a new colorway of the popular, high-end soccer boot in a Black/Circuit Orange/Black  scheme. Expect to see them on  the feet of professional-level soccer players over the next few weeks in the world's foremost leagues and at 2011's Asian Cup and Copa America.

Here is more information on the Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Elite FG Men'sSoccer Cleat from Nike:

  • Flywire for ultra-lightweight support and comfort
  • Revolutionary traction for extra grip
  • Traction pattern for cutting and instant acceleration
  • Includes exclusive shoe bag and box
  • Firm-ground (FG) bladed and conical cleats for use on short-grass fields
The Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Elite Cleat has firm-ground (FG) molded cleatsfor use on short-grass fields that may be slightly wet, but rarely muddy. It  also features Adaptive Traction, a pressure-activated cleat in the forefoot that extends when needed for the relentless grip and acceleration the game demands.  Injected studs and a vapor traction pattern allow for effortless cutting and  instant acceleration. And, for instant bursts of speed, this cleat features toe-off traction.

For ultra-lightweight support, the Vapor Superfly II Elite features innovative Flywire in a streamlined upper. Made up of super-strong, thin nylon  fibers that help hold the foot in place, Flywire reduces the cleat's weight, adjusts to the foot, provides support and increases ball feel. Also contributing to this boot's unprecedented light weight is the carbon-fiber chassis, which strips weight to the absolute minimum while maximizing strength. The contoured  design mirrors the shape of the foot for enhanced fit and feel, and the lightweight,  perforated sockliner provides low-profile cushioning and support while reducing  cleat pressure.

Nike Elite Series
The Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Elite is part of the Nike Elite Series, which optimized four of Nike's key soccer cleats with premium materials, decreasing  weight for competition on sports' biggest stage last summer. Available to players  of all levels, these super-light and incredibly strong silhouettes have been worn by the world's best.

Nike's design team worked closely with athletes including Cristiano Ronaldo,Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexandre Pato throughout the design process to create  a cleat that enables toe-off acceleration and minimizes slippage in game-changing  situations. Players emphasized that acceleration around a defender is just as  important as beating him in a straight line. Through additional research, Nike  found there were 845 slipping events over 63 games, or roughly 14 per game—a  costly price that designers were determined to minimize with the creation of  the Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Elite.
