Air Max Mercurial

After getting a look at the all-new Nike Air Max Mercurial R9 in the Black/Reflect Silver colorway earlier this month, it is now back again with a new colorway for the Summer.

Dressed in white from head to toe, the Nike Air Max Mercurial R9 features a Hyperfuse mesh upper along with an Air Max sole for premium comfort. What was once know as only a soccer cleat, Nike has given the lifestyle look to this shoe and covered in the popular Triple White colorway. Some Reflective Silver accents have also been added for some slight contrast.

Following black/white and triple white colorways, the newly-introduced Nike Air Max Mercurial R9 is set to debut in a more vibrant iteration, as the silhouette pays tribute to the soccer boot worn by iconic Brazilian soccer star, Ronaldo, back in the late ’90s.

Flaunting a Brazil-inspired palette, racer blue and varsity maize are prominent along the toe cap and side panels, while metallic silver comprises the remainder of the mesh/synthetic upper.

Tonal black accents are applied on the inner lining, laces and heel pull tabs for nice touch of contrast, as a clean white full length sole unit with a distinctive air bubble in the heel unit for enhanced cushioning finishes it all off.

If there are any living legends in the world of football, one surely must be Ronaldo, the Brazilian wonder (not Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese wonder). Nike must think so too, as the company has just unveiled a new Air Max Mercurial R9 that honors the professional player.

The new colorway is a ravishing combination of royal blue, metallic silver mesh and golden yellow, as an homage to the Brazilian flag. The shoe’s striking contours give it an aesthetic that’s not far removed from the much-adored Air Max 97, and the Supreme-endorsed Air Max 98.

Stay tuned for Nike to announce the release date of the Ronaldo-inspired Air Max Mercurial R9.
