Nike Mercurial Superfly V
The stand out feature on the new Mercurial Superfly V is the new anatomically contoured soleplate.
So what we see on this new Superfly is a new anatomical Nike plate that maps the natural contours of the foot, eliminating the gap that previously existed underfoot.
The contoured plate provides a more natural fit, as your foot is more closely enclosed within it.
But that is not the end of the developments with the soleplate. Nike, in their quest for reducing weight, have come up with a new plate which is 40% lighter than its carbon fiber predecessor. Using a new process, the plate has been hollowed out offering a significant weight reduction.
