Nike Air Max Mercurial R9 Collection

Nike continue to majestically merge the worlds of lifestyle and football with a collection that brings together two of their most iconic silhouettes, the Mercurial football boot and the Air Max trainer. R9 the glue that moulds them as one.

Dropping in a trio of colourways, the Air Max Mercurial R9 collection sees University Red, White and Black renditions of the boot first worn by the Brazilian legend at the 1998 World Cup. The ever-growing family of Nike football-streetwear silhouettes expands with a series that sits next to the Free Mercurial Superfly and Magista Footscape as the Air Max comes equipped with a Hyperfuse mesh upper and an all-white Air Max sole unit to make that long jump into the lifestyle game.

Some description

The R9 legacy is one that Nike have taken through decades of styles and the Swoosh are constantly finding new avenues that can be explored to make the collection relevant and worthy of carrying such an iconic logo. On the terraces, on the streets or in the pub, the Air Max Mercurial R9 is as versatile as you make it, all whilst acting as the latest carriage on Nike's train into the rising world of football lifestyle.
