Nike has done a great job at connecting many of it products, whether it be mashups, borrowing colorways, taking themes. This was recently seen with kicks like the Nike SB Air Jordan 1 or the Nike Kobe 8 Mambacurial. Nike is now taking the “Mercurial” theme derived from the famous soccer cleats and applying it to one of its most iconic runners, the Nike Air Max 1. Unlike the Mambacurial, the Air Max 1 FB “Mercurial Pack” will encompass 4 sneakers in assorted colorways. Here is Nike’s official word:

Though the heritage of Nike Football dates back to 1971, it wasn’t until 1998, with the launch of the first Mercurial boot, that Nike brought signature innovation to the pitch. Featuring a lightweight upper constructed with synthetic materials, the Mercurial put the emphasis on maximizing speed like no boot prior. Its legacy continues to grow year after year on the pitch – and now, off of it.

The new Air Max 1 FB Premium pack features four designs that each draw inspiration from a distinct era in the Mercurial’s lineage. Whether you’re rocking with the polarized blue & total crimson (2014), the atomic violet & total orange (2010), the vibrant yellow & black (2006), or the metallic silver & volt (2002), you’ll be taking a piece of on-pitch heritage with you. Utilizing the same performance materials as on this year’s boot, each pair features a dimpled synthetic upper with premium suede and mesh details. Instead of studs, a translucent outsole completes each design for a sleek take on street style.

You know the Air Max. You know the Mercurial. Now, worlds collide with the Mercurial-inspired Air Max 1 FB Premium pack.

The Air Max 1 FB “Mercurial Pack” is set to release on April 12th. Keep it locked to KOF for further pricing details.
