Nike Air Zoom Mercurial brings new firsts to football

Today, Nike launched a concept football shoes-Nike Air Zoom Mercurial. The boots are built around a full-length articulated Zoom airbag, which provides a unique sole feel and enhanced energy feedback. To achieve this, the inner boot chassis was transitioned to a board, leaving only the insole between the foot and the Zoom airbag for maximum effect.
Although Nike Football tried to use airbags decades ago, modern advances in the technology and its applications inspired the design team to reconsider including it in this special project. In addition to the functional applications of Zoom Air, it also provides inspiration for the overall beauty of the boots.
Nike Football Senior Design Director Jeongwoo Lee said: “We started with a full-length Zoom airbag and imagined what it would be like if the airbag expanded on the side and wrapped the boots.” “This resulted in the creation of such a translucent upper. Changing the tone of the inner insole greatly affected the appearance of the boots.”

Nike Air Zoom Mercurial brings new firsts to footballWe started with a full-length Zoom airbag and imagined what it would look like if the airbag kept growing on the side and enveloping the boots.
The Nike Flyprint upper was used in football shoes for the first time.
Flyprint is Nike’s first 3D printed textile upper for high-performance footwear and debuted on the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint worn by marathon runner Eliud Kipchoge.
Nike Flyprint uppers are produced by solid deposition molding (SDM), a process that unwinds TPU filaments from coils, melts them, and lays them in layers. The Flyprint method allows designers to transform athlete data into new textile structures. It promotes Nike’s efforts in digital textile development and adds to the tradition of proprietary modifications (or hacking) of machines-including Nike Hyperfuse, Flywire and Flyknit-to achieve previously unimaginable performance solution.

Nike Mercurial Vapor XIV Elite FG football boots vampCompared with traditional 2D fabrics, one of the advantages of 3D textiles is to increase vitality by increasing the interconnection outside the warp and weft; one of the advantages of Flyprint textiles lies in the fusion characteristics of materials. For example, although in knitted or woven textiles, there is frictional resistance between the interwoven (warp and weft) yarns, in printed textiles, there is a greater potential for precise adjustment due to the intersection of their fusions. Air Zoom Mercurial’s Flyprint upper is lighter and more breathable than Nike’s previous fabric, while still being coated with an All Condition Control (ACC) coating to combat various elements.

Nike’s calculation design ensures that the upper is reinforced in the correct area, and uses the football’s unique fine-tuned Flyprint pattern. Air Zoom Mercurial is also equipped with Flywire cables to provide additional structure and support.

But the 4.5mm zoom airbag is still the focus of the boot, although its purpose is quite different from the old experiment. In the modern version of this football Air, its responsiveness is not so much a cushioning as it is a cushioning.”In the past, people paid great attention to the cushioning of the heel, but Mercurial players did not play on the heel.” Noted Lee. “The players we design are taking off from their front feet at full speed and repeatedly. That’s why we focus on providing a thin full-length Zoom bag, which can best be defined as lively. You won’t squeeze in so much and push it away. .”

Nike Superfly 8 Elite FG high-top full-knit waterproof football shoes OutsideThe Zoom airbag is visible under the feet-and in one area, exposed and touchable. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Zoom Air, the word “20 Zoom” appeared on the heel counter. In addition to being one of Nike’s iconic innovations, Air is also one of the most sustainable innovations. Since 2008, all Nike Air sole innovations contain at least 50% recycled manufacturing waste. Flyprint is also a sustainable production method. As a recognition of this, the instep of the boot reads, “As a single-strand printed structure = zero waste.”

“Air Zoom Mercurial is a glimpse into the future and the steps we can take,” Lee concluded. “With innovations such as Air and Flyprint, as well as things that are still under development, the development of football boots is limitless.”

Experts call the best Nike running shoes of 2021

2021Best Sale Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% 2 “Blue Ribbon Sports” DD8337-400

2021Best Sale Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% 2 “Blue Ribbon Sports” DD8337-400To say that Nike shoes shape running is an understatement. The two are intertwined like peanut butter and jelly. Watching any race, you will definitely find the infamous “Swoosh” logo scattered on the feet of professional and amateur runners.
Nike history is rooted in running
Nike’s strong position in today’s running market is a direct result of its origin in this sport. It was the relationship between Bill Bowerman, a track coach at the University of Oregon, and one of his athletes that ignited the spark that eventually became Nike as we know it today.
Bowerman is known for changing runners’ shoes to make them run faster in competitions. One of his main research subjects was a runner named Phil Knight. After obtaining an MBA from Stanford University in 1962, Knight believed that he could challenge the status quo by importing cheaper but equally high-quality running shoes from Japan. Knight’s former track coach agreed. The two jointly established Blue Ribbon Sports in 1964, and the company officially changed its name to Nike, Inc. in 1971. With its unique business model, the company quickly became a strong competitor to brands such as Puma and Adidas, which at the time had a dominant position in the running shoe market. time.
Nike Waffle One Black Running Shoes DC2533-001Nike’s innovation over the years
Nike’s reputation in running shoes is well-deserved. Since Ballman used waffle iron to mold molten urethane into rubber outsoles, the famous waffle spikes were born, Nike has been constantly breaking the boundaries of running shoes innovation. In 1978, Nike created the first ladies-only running shoe Lady Waffle Trainer. In the same year, at the Honolulu Marathon, the company launched the Air Tailwind, which has a groundbreaking concept that “embed pressurized air in a strong and flexible bag” and placed it in the sole of the shoe. These airbags, called Nike Air, can reduce the impact of every step on the feet and body, while providing a vibrant spring-like feeling. An innovation that will have a knock-on effect on the entire footwear industry, including some of Nike’s best sports shoes ever, is Nike’s breakthrough vamp technology first introduced in Flyknit Racer in 2012. This revolutionary new upper material was created to provide enhanced comfort, breathability and significantly reduced weight compared with the traditional upper materials often used for running shoes at that time. This ultimately led to the engineered mesh uppers we see on most running shoes today.
2021Fashion Nike Air Zoom Winflo 8 Marathon Running Shoes CW3419-007 sidePerhaps the brand’s biggest and most controversial innovation to date is its carbon fiber coated running shoes, which were designed for Eliud Kipchoge’s first attempt at a marathon of less than two hours in 2017. One of the most popular racing shoes on the market. Nike claims that this shoe (Nike Vaporfly 4%) helps people run faster by increasing running economy by 4%. An independent study later confirmed this. Now, you will find that Nike Vaporfly 4% and its successors have appeared at the feet of all runners who want to improve their race time.
How to choose the best Nike running shoes Every running shoe is very different, even within the Nike brand. Unless you have a well-trained eye, deciphering which specifications and techniques are best for you can be a tricky task. Alta Orthopedics Physiotherapy PhD and elite runner David Salas said: “[For clients] It seems that the primary driver of effectiveness is actually comfort.” However, everyone defines comfort differently. . Some people may prefer more or less cushioning, depending on whether they need additional support or enhanced ground feel. Check the stack height and the measurement of the thickness of the sole, you can get a good understanding of the degree of cushioning of the shoe. Generally, the higher the stack height, the better the cushioning effect of the shoe.
But keep in mind that the softness or hardness of the shoe under your feet will vary from model to model and usually depends on a person’s weight. Scott Tantino, owner of North Wales Running Company, also said that every time you search for running shoes, it’s important to be open to trying new styles, as your shoe needs and sizes may change over time.

Adidas Predator, Nike Mercurial boots look to storied histories for new Freak and Dragonfly

Newly released Nike Mercurial Vapor XIV Elite FG yellow and red football boots

Nike Phantom GT Elite Dynamic Fit FG white and yellow football shoesThe world of football boots is simultaneously larger and smaller than ever. They’ve never been more impactful, more ingrained in the game than they are right now, yet they’re largely consolidated by three major manufacturers.

Two of those sports apparel giants, Adidas and Nike, make two of the most famous boots in soccer: Adidas’ Predator and Nike’s Mercurial. And, by some extraordinary coincidence, the two brands on Tuesday both introduced evolutions of their marquee designs. We break down the brand-new Predator Freak and Mercurial Dragonfly.

Adidas PREDATOR FREAK + FG black and blue football boots vampFew in the X-Men universe are as powerful, as influential, as immediately recognisable as Mystique. The way her yellow eyes pop against her spiky, blue skin, she’s commanded attention since her first appearance in 1978.

Adidas’ Predator has been just as influential and recognisable (and at times, the brand has been marketed as powerfully, too) since it was introduced in 1994. So while Adidas hasn’t explicitly said that its latest edition of the Predator takes its inspiration from Mystique, the parallels between the infamous mutant and the Predator Freak (come on!) are plain for all to see.For starters, there’s the combination of Team Royal Blue and Solar Yellow. That’s made even more striking by the 225 spikes sprouting up throughout the Demonskin outer.

The technology was first introduced with last year’s Predator Mutator, but more were added to the Freak after extensive player feedback, with an emphasis placed on greater control and swerve capability. It’s the sort of advanced weaponry that would’ve been available to Mystique’s human alter ego, Raven Darkholme, who served as Deputy Director of the Defense Advanced Research Planning Agency in the Department of Defense.

Nike Mercurial Vapor XIV Elite FG black and blue football shoes vampAnd, although not specific to Mystique — even though she had a leading role in the film — it’s hard not to see the blue veining present in the white Three Stripes and not think of Jean Grey’s transformation into Phoenix in 2006’s “X-Men 3: The Last Stand.”

Maybe we’re too into comic books and superheroes, maybe we’re imagining all these ties to Mystique and X-Men. Adidas says it took design inspiration from the 1998 Predator Accelerator and the 2000 Predator Precision. We have no doubt that that’s true — the three stripes wrapping around to the underside of the boot sure does recall the 2002 Predator Mania — but it’s hard to escape the connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The other notable upgrade made by Adidas to the Freak is its split-cut collar design. The German manufacturer says that this, compared to previous single-piece construction, allows for greater range of motion of the foot and improved adaptability to different foot shapes.

Paul Pogba, Toni Duggan, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, David Alaba and Abby Dahlkemper are spearheading the launch of the new Predator Freak, but you can expect to see countless stars with Mystique on their feet soon enough.

Nike Mercurial Dragonfly
Newly released Nike Mercurial Vapor XIV Elite FG yellow and red football bootsThe design inspiration for the Dragonfly, according to Nike, is twofold: a dragonfly’s wing (as you might have guessed) and a computer motherboard. Put those elements together and this, too, feels like something out of a comic book.

The semi-transparent look of the Dragonfly, a translucent white covering an array of bright colors underneath, does recall the kaleidoscope of colours of the insect’s wing that’s revealed by just the right light. More literally, though, Nike sought to make this book as light and efficient in its energy transfer as possible, like the wings of a dragonfly.Look at that motherboard of colours and you’ll find some of the most famous hues in the Mercurial’s 23 years of existence. Nike doesn’t explicitly name them, but it’s hard not to be reminded of the Cactus and Berry that made waves when introduced on the Vapor III and Vapor IX all those years ago.

Nike Mercurial Vapor XIV Elite FG gold yellow football shoes vampThe Oregon-based brand set about developing the newest edition of the silo with several principles in mind, but there’s one overriding goal for football’s premier speed boot: creating a touch and a fit that make the Dragonfly feel like an extension of the foot.

And on a warm spring’s day spent frolicking in the grass, is there anything more majestic feeling than a dragonfly resting on your foot?

Expect to see stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Ada Hegerberg wearing these on the field soon.

The Nike Air Max Pre-Day Connects Generations of Innovation

Fashion Nike Air Jordan 1 Low “UNC” Basketball Shoes Sale 553558-144 vamp

2021 Best Selling Nike Air Max 270 React Light Bone Outlet Sale CV8815-100March 16, 2021-The Nike Air Max Pre-Day posture is reminiscent of Nike’s golden age of jogging shoes (think Daybreak, produced from 1979 to 1981) and the radical, visible Nike Air heel unit , Nike Air Max Pre-Day breaks new ground in the Air field.

2021Most Popular Nike Air Max 270 React Outlet Sale CZ1612-100The eye-catching aesthetics of the shoe combines the late 1970s and 2020s, highlights the spirit of simplified design, minimizes material waste, and contains at least 20% recycled content by weight (the upper is 100% recycled poly Ester; the outsole is about 13% Nike Grind rubber) and the Air device is placed at a new angle. The fully exposed heel airbag is the same as the airbags currently used in Air Max 1s, Air Max 90s, Air Jordan IIIs, IVs, Vs and VIs.the difference? Now, the complete Air cushion can not only be seen through the window, but also exposed between the midsole and the outsole.

Fashion Nike Air Jordan 1 Low “UNC” Basketball Shoes Sale 553558-144 LeftIn addition to the visual impact of engineering design, this articulation of the Air unit also supports a new feel under the foot. Air Max Pre-Day reduces the number of layers between the foot and the Air, and places the device between two hard surfaces to achieve a more obvious bounce with each step.

With this breakthrough, the shoe draws on the dawn of Air and pays tribute to Nike’s decades of experimentation and innovation in the field of cushioning. Although Air-Sole made its debut with Tailwind in the late 1970s, its development as the Nike logo is largely due to the continuous progress of Air Manufacturing Innovation (Air MI).

The predecessor of Air MI was Tetra Plastics, a plastics manufacturer located in the St. Louis area, based on four principles: quality, service, innovation and engineering. Tetra started working with Nike in 1981 to develop Air-Soles. In 1986, the company developed the Visi-Air tubing that made Air Max 1 possible, and from 1989 to 1991 pioneered the blow molding process for airbags, which allowed for increased cushioning in visible Air shoes. The relationship between the two parties developed to Nike’s full acquisition of Tetra in 1991.

Best selling Nike Air Max 2090 White Turf Orange Speckled Outlet Sale CZ1708-100 vampIn the past three years, Air MI has been characterized by continuous innovation. The evolution of Air is marked by breakthroughs in thermoforming technology, which has brought about new airbag shapes and performance improvements, as well as significant benefits from sustainable manufacturing. For example, more than 90% of the waste materials used in Air-Soles are recycled. Use to manufacture new and innovative cushioning systems.

In Pre-Day, Nike Air’s promise has witnessed another revolution. Reconsidering the use of the popular visible air unit provides a subtle reminder that a good idea can have multiple incarnations.

It sees grey mesh uppers that are primarily disrupted by black suede overlays to balance out the bold colors to come. Wavy overlays on the forefoot and the eyelets introduce green suede, while hints of red are found near the ankle and on the NB-branded tongue label. The final color, which is a true blue, is applied to the laces, toe, and beneath the silver, oversized “N” logo on the side.
