As the standard-setting speed, the Nike Mercurial collection received major upgrades in 2019-20.
From the completely loaded elite model to the academy, the CR7 Mercurial collection is engineered to equip you with both time-tested and new features so you can outpace the opposition.
Let’s a tool underneath the hood of the Nike CR7 Mercurial Superfly and CR7 Vapor 13.
What are the major differences between Super-fly and Vapor?
Short answer – a few dozen dollars and the collar height, and the long answer is.
Unlike old models, the CR7 Vapor and CR7 Super-Fly are nearly identical (outsole, upper, and the rest).
The major difference is the Super-fly features a dynamic fit collar that Nike lowered in height as a response to a player’s opinion.
At the same time, the Vapor models have the traditional under the ankle collar.
Players who favor the best top collar enjoy the lockdown and the seamless relationship it promotes among the lower leg and the foot.
Players who kept the vapor cleats enjoy the lower collar for its more conventional feel.
The overall teaching is exactly similar. Both Nike CR7 Mercurial soccer cleats have:
- A new, softer extreme tenacity yarn fly knit construction that is softer and more form-fitting.
- A ground-breaking All Conditions Control is included in the individual yarns for the finest water intake prevention yet;
- A further responsive soleplate built for dynamic play in each side
One other note here, the Vapor cleat heel counter does have the little large cup form to help the boot hug foot and not slip during play.
The Super-fly cleats, because of the dynamic fit collar, are more space in the heel.
So, is the super-fly worth the extra price? That all comes down an individual preference.
