Inspired by the Nike Mercurial SL released in 2008
When footwear designer Mark Parker become CEO of Nike in January 2006, he challenged every design team to create something outrageous with no design limitations, inviting a re-imagining of innovation in performance footwear.
Reacting to this challenge, Nike Football super-charged the Mercurial's lightweight speed concept by constructing the latest silhouette entirely out of carbon fiber. It weighed in at just 185 grams. With the upper crafted in Italy, the plate engineered in Germany, and the outsole built in South Korea, the Mercurial SL was a product of the global game.
