After a year of versatility on the Swoosh's soccer-inspired footwear game, Nike are starting this year in the same way as they ended last – with another stylish Zoom Mercurial XI Flyknit offering.
Retaining the smart brown leather heel accents as the previous Nike Zoom Mercurial XI Flyknit "Sail" that closed out the year for the Swoosh, the new "Dark Grey" drop sports two shades of grey across the entire upper, with a different shade of grey on the Swoosh. A clean white Zoom midsole and gum soles provide the smooth ride and typically sleek finishing aesthetics.
Bending the rules of design when it comes to football boots and lifestyle footwear, the Zoom Mercurial XI Flyknit seamlessly adapts to alternative environments away from the pitch, amplified by those brown leather heel accents. You simply couldn't stick them on a Superfly boot. After a beautiful "Team Red" edition of the Lunar Magista II Flyknit, it's safe to say Nike's 2017 catalogue of soccer inspired lifestyle product is off to a flyer.
