With the launch of the new Nike Mercurial Superfly 8, recent leaks show that there will be a continuation of the “Dream Speed” series. This new addition to the series, the Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 Dream Speed 4, will be worn by Ronaldo, Mbappe and Sam Kerr. In keeping with the rest of the series, we can see that these leaked pictures show there to be a slightly different styling from the “normal” Mercurials.

A cool example of this is a larger silhouette of the Nike swoosh on the outside of the boot. This is accompanied by a smaller silver swoosh closer to the rear of the silhouette. There is also a kind of race flag type square found on the toe box, as well on the heels on the outstep and the instep. Maybe Nike are once again going to tie a Mercurial to racing like they did with Neymar “Speed Freak” Vapors.
Colourway-wise, its reminiscent of a fruit slushie. The colours look like they’ll be brighter in person and it should look good on feet and on the pitch. We kind of wish they extended the colour all around the boot instead of having a white base. We are looking forward to seeing this Nike Mercurial Superfly when it launches!
However, these look quite good and it will be interesting to see if Nike will be able to replicate the success they have had with previous models of the Dream Speed series.
The Nike Mercurial Dream Speed 4 is slated for a March/April launch which form part of its summer/spring launch – very apt considering the boot’s bright colours. The boot should also be expected to launch in the low cut Vapor version as well.
