Nike is marking two decades of dominance on the field with a "What the Mercurial" for 2018. Designed from the ground up for faster football, the all-black monochromatic upper features an advanced Flyknit upper that has a 2D design featuring icons that represent the shoe's lineage that is then heated and pressed into the Mercurial 360 knit. Limited to 1,998 pairs, a number that refers to shoe's launch year, the limited edition Mercurial will also come in custom box with an anniversary shoe bag.

20 pairs will be released at NikeLab Milan on March 8th while Nike's online store and select retailers get it on March 12th.
