Nike have released a new Air Max 1 trainer range which pays tribute to the Nike Mercurial football boot - first released in 1998.
The new range includes four different styles, each nodding to a particular variant of the boot. The green and red style refers to the latest, 2014 version, the violet and orange to the 2010 incarnation, the yellow and black to 2006's model and the metallic silver to 2002's.
In place of studs, each trainer has a translucent sole, which complements the use of authentic materials faithful to the current Mercurial's performance technology.
The marriage of the two worlds - training shoes and football boots - gives us the "Air Max 1 FB Premium, inspired by Mercurial".
