In addition to new Off-White x Nike Zoom Fly Mercurials courtesy of Virgil Abloh, the Mercurial soccer boot range will also take its speedy shades and design cues to the Air Max Plus retro runner. Known as the Mercurial TN, this update sheds the supportive "fingers" of the traditional Air Max Plus for a minimal look that more closely resembles the upper of a boot.

Further updates to make the Air Max Plus more cleat-like include a TPU coating, large logos, and iridescent support shanks which reference the plates found at the sole of Mercurials.
The Mercurial TN will debut tomorrow in black and orange colorways on nike.com and in-store exclusively from Foot Locker UK and EU on Thursday, May 17. They'll then be joined by the white style later this month on May 31.
In the mid-2000s, Nike Sportswear rebranded the Nike Air More Uptempo to the slightly different Air More Tempo and dropped off this simple white and red colorway. As part of the model's recent resurgence, the style is expected back in stores this spring.
Essentially a more understated version of the "Gym Red" pair that released last spring, red on this make-up is limited to the 'AIR' outline, Swoosh logo hits and the visible Air bags. The word is that these will be available on May 24 for $160.
