The History Of The Nike Mercurial Football Boot’s Sneaker Crossovers_Fashion at Your Feet


In 1998, Brazilian soccer star Ronaldo helped Nike introduce the Mercurial football boot to the world during the World Cup in his home country. Adorned in the blue and yellow colors of his Brazilian banner, the striking look started a new potential for football boots to cross over into lifestyle footwear. Starting with the brand’s Air Zoom Mercurial Trainer, Nike has created silhouettes ranging from the Air Force 1 to the air Max 1 that have regularly payed homage to the Mercurial line. The Swoosh is expected to reveal its next Mercurial football boot on February 7th, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for updates regarding that.
