The Nike Mercurial Superfly football boots are a revelation. They are lighter than ever before, and give a unique touch on the ball. They incorporate the new dynamic fly knit collar which hugs your ankles and gives the boot a seamless feel on your feet.
But one problem with them is that they get dirty really easily. Because the Nike Mercurial Superfly boots are made from fly knit material (along with the fly knit collar) they are made from what is essentially fabric. And like any clothes or garments, you can’t just clean them with warm soapy water and a sponge!
This was fine with old leather boots but no good for Nike Mercurial Superfly boots, or even the new Nike Magista Obra’s.
So what’s the solution?
Well, I tried putting my £280 boots in the washing machine, and this is what happened!
