As the indoor season approaches at a rapid speed, we here at Soccerprose felt as though we should bring you a review of one of our brand new indoor soccer shoes: the Mercurial Victory IC. Nike has just released a new color scheme for their Vapor series and these lucky shoes are graced with the new design. The neon volt and teal will help you to stand out among the crowd and hopefully take your game to a new level as well.
These new indoor shoes are very similar to the outdoor Nike Mercurial Victory in terms of material used. The upper is made out of a soft synthetic material that helps reduce weight and provide improved touch. The sock liner is made out of molded EVA to contour to your foot and give enhanced comfort on the field. The insole of these shoes is very soft and provides very good support on the hard indoor playing surface. They help reduce pressure by having a very soft heel as well as forefoot. The shoe features a traditional center lacing scheme similar to the outdoor shoe. Another nice feature of the shoe is the raised heel. This helps to not have your foot slipping out while you are in the middle of the game.
These shoes are very comfortable. As I said above, the insole provides very good comfort and stability which is essential when you are playing on a hard surface. Since you do not want too much stress on your joints, especially your knees, the added cushion goes a long way. These also run very similar to the Mercurial series in that they are a little narrow. So you do want to take that in consideration when you purchase these.
In futsal and other indoor soccer games, good touch is essential. These Mercurial Victory’s help in providing a very light shoe that has outstanding touch. Like the outdoor cleat, these mold to your foot to provide a second skin for ultimate touch and feel on the ball. Therefore, if you are in the market for a great indoor shoe that includes the features mentioned above, these Victory’s are for you. At $59.99, they are not an overly expensive shoe for the quality you are getting.
