The Nike Football division just whipped up a proper tribute to the World Cup and the lineage of the Mercurial boot in this Air Max 1 FB Mercurial Pack. Swiping inspiration from some of the most popular Mercurials has made for some pretty dope color combinations.
Rather than just use the same colors, Nike utilized some of the same technology as well. Each pair has that familiar synthetic dimpled upper reminiscent of a golf ball for a lighter weight. Only the silver/volt pair has a suede mudguard, but all come equipped with an ice sole to round out the sleek looks. Job well done, especially with the stripes on the Phoenix Suns looking joint.
The Nike Air Max 1 FB Mercurial Pack releases April 12th. Chances are we’ll be seeing these being rocked heavily during this year’s World Cup. Great timing with the release of the Nike sponsored away kits last week as well.
Now, can someone spare an Asian brother one of those USA/South Korea away jerseys?
