You can't talk about Nike without mentioning Flyknit. The game-changing performance textile is now used across all its product lines and now the material is getting its biggest update since 2012. Seen above in the new Mercurial boots, the latest iteration of Flyknit allows for an upper to be constructed in a complete, 360-degree form to cover the entirety of the foot. The second-skin idea of Flyknit is further amplified using sophisticated knitting structures and a thermoforming process to make the upper lighter and more breathable than ever before. 

The new Mercurials will be available on February 14th.
