Closer Look | Nike MercurialX Proximo

In an era where the popularity of football exceeds the amount of space available to play it more and more players are turning to the small-sided game. Acknowledging the fact that it's where players styles emerge Nike have dropped the FootballX collection, headlined by the MercurialX Proximo.

Along with the MagistaX the MercurialX transforms the technology found on the on-pitch cleated edition to create a top-level shoe built for the intense demands of street, turf and cage football. Replicating the look of the Mercurial Superfly IV the MercurialX adds low-profile Phylon cushioning for increased comfort and features Nike Grind rubber on the areas of the shoe that are exposed to high abrasion and drag, typical of street football.

Some description

Merging pinnacle boot technology with design elements unique to small-sided football creates Nike most technologically advanced collection and a new era of street footballing footwear design. After talking to small-sided players Nike discovered that players wanted the same performance benefits that the Magista and Mercurial provide, but with outsoles and colorways unique to their game. That debut colourway comes in the form of a black canvas with geometric graphics that under streetlights. Job done.

The Nike MercurialX Proximo is available from select online stockists including Pro-Direct Soccer. Let us know your thoughts below.
