Nike have released a special-edition pair of Mercurial Superfly “Leave Your Legacy” boots to celebrate the fantastic career of superstar Carli Lloyd.
The 33-year-old, who was named the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year on Monday, won the Golden Ball at last summer’s World Cup where she helped drive the USA to victory in Canada.
Now Nike, who have had an eight-year association with Lloyd, have introduced these boots in honour of one of the women’s game’s greatest ever players.
Designed expressly for the midfielder, the boots were presented to her last week in Los Angeles, where the national team is training for this summer’s global competition in Brazil.
Andrea Perez, General Manager of Nike Soccer in North America, said: “Carli is already one of the greats of the women’s game and these boots are our way of celebrating that.”
The special-edition “Leave Your Legacy” boots will be worn by Lloyd on January 23 in San Diego, during the USA’s match against the Republic of Ireland.
