This time around it is a new version of the high profile Nike Mercurial Superfly range that features a mix of technology found on the new Magista, and modified technology from the original Superfly. In terms of popularity, they don’t get much bigger than these with fans flocking to get their hands on a pair however they can. Being that they are priced above $250, that is not as easy as it sounds, but those that have managed to snag a pair are reportedly extremely pleased with their purchase.

But how do they really perform and why have players like Cristiano Ronaldo gone about modifying their pairs? Here is our take and what you need to know about the alternate speed boot. For those that want a pair, find them at here or have fun creating your own pair.

It is very interesting to see what direction Nike has taken the Black Nike Mercurial Superfly V in, considering it was a range that seemed to be part of the past. The introduction of a mid-cut collar and Flyknit material follows the release of the Magista, giving us some precedence for what to expect. Given my disappointment with previous models of the Nike Superfly Soccer Cleats – notably because of Flywire on a rigid upper.
