Nike Mercurial Superfly Leather SG-Pro - Canvas/Black/Volt
SG - Soft Ground
Created with a premium K-leather upper, Dynamic Fit Collar and a responsive carbon plate, the Nike Mercurial Superfly Leather SG-Pro football boots are created for explosive speed on soft ground.
Featuring a revolutionised design that uses a combination of Flyknit and premium K-leather, the world's fastest players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial will be able to display earth shattering moments of speed with the Mercurial Superfly Leather SG-Pro football boots.
The Superfly utilises Flyknit technology for a sock-like fit, while a thin layer of K-leather is applied to the forefoot of the boot’s upper for an unprecedented barefoot feel on the ball.
To help assist your touch, the boot includes Nike’s All Conditions Control (ACC) technology, which is a special application that is applied to the K-leather upper to provide enhanced ball control in both wet and dry conditions.
Designed for seamless comfort at full speed, the Superfly’s Dynamic Fit Collar is installed to make the foot and ankle feel like one when running and turning, while also increasing your awareness and interaction with the ground and ball.
To provide support during multi-directional movement, the lateral and medial sides of this boot feature Flywire cables, which are knitted directly into the one-piece upper to lock the eyelets of the laces. When tightened, the laces work with the cables to wrap the foot for excellent lockdown enhancing your reactivity.
Lower to the ground, the full-length carbon-fibre soleplate reduces the boot’s centre of gravity for enhanced traction, while its flexible dual layer construction helps to transmit more power to the ground for explosive speed.
The Superfly's traction system features redesigned and reconfigured blades for increased stability and traction. Two sets of aluminium studs (11/13mm and 13/15mm) offer custom traction on soft ground.

Firm GroundBoots with Firm Ground soleplates are only to be used on natural short-grass surfaces that is firm underfoot but may be slightly wet. Designed specifically for this playing surface, they offer acceleration, comfort and enhanced traction, dispersing stud pressure evenly across the foot. FG soleplates are fixed (not removable) and are used worldwide; wetter countries tend to use them spring to autumn. FG boots are not to be used on artificial ground (AG) surfaces as the construction is not designed for the extra friction. FG boots used on AG surfaces will invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
Soft GroundSoft Ground (SG) soleplates are specifically designed for use on wet and soft to very soft natural grass pitches that may also be muddy and/or waterlogged. Used worldwide, mainly during winter months, boots made for soft ground have removable, replaceable screw-in studs that can be plastic, entirely metal or metal-tipped and typically come in a six-stud configuration (4 at the forefoot, 2 slightly longer at the heel). Screw-in studs must be checked and tightened before use as during manufacture they are machine-inserted and may be loose.
TurfTurf (also called Astro Turf) is an older, more unforgiving type of synthetic-grass surface consisting of either sand or water-based carpet typically laid on concrete. Subsequently a harder and faster surface, boots for use on turf (TF) usually have a cushioned midsole and a very durable, flat, multi-lugged or dimpled rubber outsole because turf requires light stud penetration. Owing to the hard nature of the surface and the friction it creates, no other outsole type should be used on turf and will result in considerable wear to the studs and soleplate edges and may result in injury.
Artificial GrassArtificial Grass surfaces (also known as an all-weather surface) typically consist of 3G (rubber crumb) or 4G (longer pile, combination of rubber/sand infill, more closely resembling actual grass). Fifth generation artificial grass is yet to be widely used. Boots made for AG are specifically designed, usually with less nylon to increase durability for the extra abrasion associated with synthetic grass and feature more numerous and densely concentrated studs. They may also vary in height for improved traction and/or hollowed-out to reduce weight and enhance cushioning. AG boots can also be used on firm ground (FG), though performance will depend on how dry and firm it is.
StreetStreet typically describes pitches or surfaces that are often found in inner-city residential areas. They consist of varying hard surfaces such as tarmac, paved or concreted hard-court areas and are often contained by a 'cage' constructed of steel or wire netting. Shoes for play on Street (ST) pitches will have an outsole made of extra hard-wearing rubber with a multi-lugged traction pattern similar in appearance to turf shoes. They also usually have midsole cushioning for shock absorption and comfort and are equipped with extended rubber toe bumpers to cope with scuffing.
IndoorIndoor surfaces for small-sided games such as 5-a-side and Futsal are usually flat, extremely hard and unforgiving and typically consist of varnished wood, linoleum or a smooth, painted synthetic or composite material. For grip, indoor outsoles (IN) are usually flat to maximise ground contact and slick in appearance with a minimal, non-aggressive traction pattern or grooves for flex and to dissipate surface moisture. They typically use non-marking moulded gum rubber and usually have midsole cushioning for shock absorption and comfort. Indoor shoes cannot be used on abrasive street surfaces such as concrete or gravel as they will quickly wear out.
