Nike Just Dropped A Soccer Boot For The Eshay Athlete

Your garden variety eshay is more likely to rob you at the train station than make the starting 11 of your local footy club, but if you know any rat-tail-toting graffiti enthusiasts with some talent on the ball, we’ve found the perfect set of boots for them. The Nike Mercurial Superfly 9 FG Voltage Purple fuses the best of the Nike Air Max Plus (or TN’s, as they’re known), with turf-tearing soccer cleats.

Why would Nike make such a shoe? As is often the case with “street” footwear, a design or style becomes popular on the outskirts of town before being more widely adopted.

The Nike TN crossed the socioeconomic divide a couple of years ago and is now a certifiably trendy shoe (no matter your tax bracket), leading Nike to include it in its Spring 2024 line-up. Arriving in a resplendent shade of purple that’s contrasted by black TPU reinforcements, these boots were recently spotted on the feet of Kylian Mbappé while playing for Paris Saint-Germain.

The Nike Mercurial Superfly 9 FG boots are set to be available through Nike and select retailers online and in-store, arriving at a retail price of around US$310 (AU$460). Traditionally this might put them out of the budget of your local miscreants, but they do always find a way to get a pair on their feet.
