Football News > Football News - Nike Mercurial Superfly Hits Euro Leagues 16/03/09



We're sure you enjoyed the weekend's football as much as we did at the SoccerBible. Liverpool's triumph at Old Trafford, Barcelona easing past Almeria and Inter Milan charging towards another title were just some of the highlights.


However, this weekend saw the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly football boots hit the major Euro leagues including the Premier League, Serie A and La Liga as loads of players upgraded to the new boots. We've picked our favourites from a frantic weekend's football in a Superfly Spotting special!


Arsenal new boy Andrey Arshavin netted his first Gunners goal - although he switched to Vapor IV for the second half!
Chelsea's Didier Drogba is enjoying a resurgence under Hiddink


Other Premier League Superfly's could be seen at Villa Park, where Tottenham's Aaron Lennon and Aston Villa's Gabriel Agbonlahor both sported the new boots. Nicklas Bendtner didn't quite do the Superfly's as much justice as his Russian teammate however at the Emirates.


Cristiano Ronaldo had a subdued performance but still rocked the Superfly's against Liverpool
Robinho has the skills and but couldn't help Manchester City avoid defeat at Chelsea


Mercurial fan Stephen Ireland also played at Stamford Bridge with the Superfly's, keeping up his reputation of wearing the latest speed boots from Nike. Ryan Babel, a second half substitute at Old Trafford, showed a quick pair of heels in the Superfly boots too.


Pato delivered a Superfly double as AC Milan thrashed Atalanta 5-1
Zlatan Ibrahimovic shrugged off a Champions League exit with a double against Fiorentina


We reckon our eagle eyed SoccerBible fans saw these and plenty of other players across the continent sporting these new boots - let us know who you saw and if they rocked the Superfly's too!

apparently Arshavin got stiches in his foot during halftime so maybe the switch from the superfly to the IV was due to this

Vapor V's and Superflys are going to be released in several more colourways. The vapor V's will be released in Silver with a red tick, black with a yellow tick, and dark blue/purple with a red tick. This is just  what i've heard. The Superflys may come out in all silver and a red tick, and all black and a yellow tick. Not sure if it's true, wait and see I guess. ;) The Vapors V colour looks better in silver and red tick, personally.
