Marred by controversies, cost overruns and political unrest, the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil is off to a rough start even before the first game. Despite the difficulties and challenges ahead, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff reassured FIFA’s President Sepp Blatter that her country will be ready to host the game come June 12th. In the meantime, Nike is getting ready for the world’s most popular sporting event with a number of exclusive offerings, like these Air Max 1s.
Known as the Nike Air Max 1 FB Premium as well as the Nike Air Max 1 “Mercurial” Pack, each within the quartet is a doppelganger of a Mercurial boot from Nike Soccer. It starts off with the 1998 Nike Mercurial I R9, the very first model from the Mercurial line. Then the pack progresses to the 2002 Nike Mercurial Vapor I R9, the 2009 Nike Mercurial Vapor III R9 and finally the 2010 Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Elite.
Emphasizing not just the off-the-pitch lifestyle of soccer fans but a timeline of ever improving gear on-the-pitch, the Nike Air Max 1 FB Premium “Mercurial” Pack will be available starting this Saturday, April 12th, at select Nike Sportswear retailers with “Quickstrike” account worldwide.
