Nike have launched the first edition of a brand new Mercurial series. The 'Dream Speed' line of Mercurial designs are set to be worn exclusively by Sam Kerr, Kylian Mbappé and Cristiano Ronaldo, and the debut drop follows the theme of the DNA of speed.

The Nike Mercurial Dream Speed features unique design interpretations of speed, to be unveiled one at a time over the next several seasons. The first Nike Mercurial Dream Speed edition outlines technical details found in a Mercurial schematic such as perforation patterns, registration marks, crop lines, color codes, a scale ruler, and other graphic elements that show how the boot is built. The bold blue colorway takes cues from blueprints.


Presenting a metallic finish, subtle sparkling laces, and a magnified faded Swoosh on the upper, the boot embodies movement even when it’s standing still. A 10A and 73P color codes stand for white and barely volt respectively, the two colors displayed across Nike’s logo. On the lateral side of the heel, a '001' logo shines with an iridescent finish, attributing the first iteration of the series. The 44.7 km/h speed next to the strike zone represent a dream speed for any footballer.

You can work out what 'MDS' stands for. The 'Dream Speed' Mercurial series essentially replaces the long standing and hugely successful CR7 signature series, as Nike take the exclusivity away from Cristiano Ronaldo to focus on a wider group of iconic speed players, still headlined by the Juventus man. The first 'Dream Speed' edition is launched in a Superfly 7 silhouette, but also in a lo-cut Vapor 13 version, both available in SG Anti-Clog soleplates.
