The Nike Mercurial is the game’s cleat. Unmatched in almost all facets – including fame and player endorsement – Nike’s speed-focused cleat has undergone a complete redesign in 2021. The design of the new Mercurial draws on the natural geometry of a Dragonfly’s wing (really!) as a guide to driving maximum efficiency with minimal weight. Light and translucent, the wings of a Dragonfly carry the insect to tremendous speeds. These design choices reflect on the cleat itself and result in a lightweight, efficient cleat stripped to only its key components, each made visible for an arresting aesthetic that relays the pure essentials of speed.
