Nike have launched the gorgeous new Nike Mercurial 360 ‘LVL UP’ and it’ll be Australia’s golden girl Sam Kerr, along with her football idol Cristiano Ronaldo and French superstar Kylian Mbappe, who debuts the incredible boots in early April.
An ode to the characteristically explosive speed which the boot has brought to the game for over 20 years, the Nike Mercurial 360 ‘LVL UP’ will see its first on-pitch action when Kerr takes to the field against the United States on Friday, April 5.
The pre-World Cup friendly against the States, who are slight favourites for champions, will also see the debut of the recently-launched Matildas World Cup jersey, aka ‘Spew Kit 2.0’.
The 360 ‘LVL UP’ boot is a colourful, bold embodiment of explosive play and features elements from some of the most enigmatic Mercurial boots of the past decade.
The boot is wrapped in a reflective white-on-white safari print which was inspired by the 1987 Nike Air Safari, and is an element which dates back to 2010 on Mercurial boots. A similar black-on-black safari print can be found on the infamous Nike Swoosh.
Comprising a gorgeous centrepiece, a multi-coloured band consisting of safari, silverware, cheetah, galaxy, gold and lava-inspired patterns wraps around the forefoot and along the bottom of the boot, running from underfoot to heel, whilst also appearing atop the tongue.
For those looking to get their hands on these stunning boots, the Nike Mercurial 360 ‘LVL UP’ is available for purchase from Sunday 31 March at Nike.com.au/.
