Bringing some special edition flow back to the Mercurial line, Nike launch the Superfly 8 and Vapor 14 ‘Safari’, updating the iconic print for a modern look that’s set to shimmer on the pitches of the Champions League.
The famous print is back in town and wraps itself around the latest generation Mercurial Superfly and Vapor to give a first special edition feel to the updated silhouette. Nike roll out their trusted Volt colour palette and deliver a boot that will be worn by any Mercurial player left competing in this year’s Champions League knockout stages, so you can expect to see it on pitch this week in the Quarter Final second legs.
In the past, Cristiano Ronaldo would exclusively switch into Safari releases, but Nike have now opted for a group mentality by dishing out the design to all of their elite level players in Europe’s showpiece club event. The other significant factor about this design is that is transforms under light; whether it’s a camera flash or the floodlights above, the Safari pattern is designed to light up when in direct contact with powerful light.
