Nike Air Zoom Mercurial Superfly IX Academy NU TF - Guava Ice/Black
That’s right, Zoom Air. Positioned in the heel, it provides responsive cushioning to propel you into action, working with aggressive traction to enable the dynamic moves that make the difference in the final third. It’s not just the outsole that’s faster than ever. Every aspect of the upper has been optimized for speed. A breathable knit closure and a cut-out Speed Cage lining combine to provide lightweight, flexible support, and the outer layer features texturing that’s engineered to give a natural, tactile feel on the ball when dribbling at pace. For a comfortable fit, the refined central lacing system accommodates a wider range of foot shapes and allows easy entry to get you game-ready in no time. Now that’s fast.
Starting with “The Nike” back in 1970, the Swoosh’s designs have always led the way when it comes to combining style and performance.
Their modern range includes the ever-popular Mercurial for speed, as worn by the legend that is Cristiano Ronaldo, along with the touch-focused Phantom GT. Or, if you prefer a classic cleat, the more traditional Tiempo and Premier are your go-to options.
Nike offer cleats for all types of surface and levels of play, including their exclusive Anti-Clog editions with soleplates designed specifically for wet, muddy pitches.

Ground Type Guide
Selecting the correct sole plate for the surface you are playing on is crucial, not only for the performance and longevity of your cleats, but also to avoid the risk of injury.
Using an outsole that isn't designed specifically for the surface on which you are playing may cause premature wear and/or damage that will not be deemed as a fault of manufacture and will prevent the retailer accepting them for a refund or exchange.
Turf, a synthetic-grass surface, usually applies to Astro Turf (sand or water-based). Playing on turf surfaces requires less cleat penetration, which is similar to the needs of a hard ground sole plate, and features a solid rubber outsole with numerous, small multidirectional lugs.
Turf cleats are also appropriate for play on very dry natural surfaces, hard dirt pitches or gravel.
