What are the significant differences between Super-fly and Vapor?

The short answer is 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 significant difference is that the Super-fly features a dynamic fit collar that Nike lowered in height due 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 precisely similar. Both Nike CR7 Mercurial soccer cleats have:

  • A new, softer extreme tenacity yarn fly knit construction is more delicate and form-fitting.
  • A ground-breaking All Conditions Control is included in the individual yarns for the most acceptable water intake prevention yet;
  • A further responsive soleplate built for dynamic play on 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.

Because of the dynamic fit collar, the Super-fly cleats are more space in the heel.

My name is Mick, and I'm a marathon runner and travel enthusiast from New York. I'm not a natural runner and have worked hard to cut my marathon time from 5.14 to 3.68. I'm currently chasing a Boston Qualifying time of sub 3.30. My blog shares my experiences of balancing marathon training, work and active travel adventures, plus advice specifically for runners. In a nutshell, I’m your average runner who is full of encouragement, motivation, running stories, and a lot of (both solicited and unsolicited) beginner fitness advice.
