Over the past few months, we've seen a number of design innovations all leading up to today's launch of the 2014 World Cup. While many of these have been inspiring to see, unless we play soccer, there just isn't much most of us can do with them.

Enter the Nike Free Mercurial Superfly HTM. Inspired by the Mercurial Superfly IV, this shoe offers an off-pitch option while maintaining many of the design elements of the original. You'll still find the Dynamic Fit and Flywire upper construction, only this time, it's atop a Free sole rather than cleats.

Like most HTM projects, you probably won't be able to ge these without paying reseller prices, especially considering they're already showing as no longer available on Nike's just launched NikeLAB site. Be on the lookout though for more info on the shoe and NikeLAB as it becomes available.
