Wake up, Speed Up. This is the new Nike Mercurial Dream Speed, so strap in for another exclusive Pro:Direct Soccer stellar boot drop.

Alright then – let’s get those first impressions in because instantly, you can see this one is going to be a bit special. Somehow, Nike have made the new Superfly look even more futuristic with this Mercurial Dream Speed version, and even made saying the name of the boot quicker by dropping shimmering MDS logos along the rear quarter of the left boot. Because of the versatility that Flyknit offers, we get a deep blue base that is then layered with crisp, white outlined graphics and a re-positioned statement Swoosh that transitions from Volt to white. It’s all very dreamy, very sci-fi and very reminiscent of one of Mercurials’ greatest hits – the CR7 Galaxy Vapor 9. And that’s more than just a coincidence…

Now, Dream Speed picks up where Level Up left off, which means lacing up this boot will be three players who dared to dream big – Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe and Samantha Kerr. It’s another nod towards the changing of the guard for the Swoosh’s halo football product, further referenced in the design language and call outs on the boot.


Go through Mercurial’s back catalogue and some of the best looking Superfly’s have been reserved for Mr. Mercurial himself Cristiano, usually accompanied with bold CR logos. Often this meant some players were put off from choosing those boots when looking for their new pair, but not so with Dream Speed. Still a made-for-Ronaldo drop, the design influence is way more subtle in execution – so that means the Swoosh gets located to Cristiano’s preferred position across the toe. True boot heads will know this already but check out the Swoosh on any of Ronaldo’s signature Superfly boots if you don’t know what we mean – with only one notable exception.


With the CR branding dialled down, Nike have introduced references to the next generation of speed on this, the first of the MDS chapters. Just below the Swoosh on the boots’ instep sits a call out of 44.7km/h, the measured peak speed of Mbappe that borders on superhuman. That defining moment gets immortalised on the MDS as another reference to obsessing over finding speed in the detail.

That obsession is what drove the designers to arrive with this evolution to the Mercurial line. It’s all good if you dare to dream big, but dreaming big is not enough on its’ own, you’ve got to have the tools to do it. There’s nothing faster for this than Mercurial. From the sole plate to the laces, every detail of this generation Mercurial has been examined and refined in pursuit of one thing and one thing only - speed. So, when you combine your dreams with rapid pace, it’s easy to see how Nike have arrived here with Dream Speed.


Obviously, the Elite tier Superfly shown here gets the headlines. This MDS collection comes fully loaded with a Vapor 13 option, both boots offered with a choice of sole plate options and models through the price points to suit every surface and budget. We’re also looking after the next generation at Pro Direct Soccer as once again the Elite tier ships in kids’ sizes for those that are serious about their game and their style.
