A pair of football boots need to be perfectly made for the player who will wear them. That is precisely what happens with Mercurial
, the model that Nike Football
has developed for Neymar
. The boots of the Paris Saint-Germain
star are actually similar to Neymar
: they're light boots which guarantee a good, clean and subtle contact when striking the ball. The Mercurial Superfly and Vapor models help give strength and speed to the Brazilian's moves in order to transfer them to the ball and the playfield.
Neymar's repertoire combines light moves to outrun and move over the field with a natural ability for dribbles. The ex-FC Barcelona player likes to challenge defenders each time he's got possesion of the ball, with pauses and accelerations which seek to confuse his rivals. Consequently, the star of the Brazilian National Team needs to count in his boot with a perfect grip to the pitch for braking and for fast accelerations and firmness for aggressive direction changes.
All this, of course, without neglecting the contact with the ball: Neymar likes to treat the ball smooothly and he looks for excellence in his Mercurial to control and dribble. The PSG player wears this model since its release and he has played an important role in this new boot line release by Nike for those players who stand out for their abilities. Neymar's boots present NikeSkin, a synthetic material developed for Nike which provides an excellent grip and sturdiness without increasing the final weight of the boot. The sole of the Mercurial model is another of its most noteworthy characteristics since it allows the Brazilian player to always step on a flat and steady surface.
The ACC (All Conditions Control) finish increases the inside comfort of the boot and protects it from bad weather conditions.
Here is all the Nike boot collection that Neymar has worn so you can choose your favourite color combination.
