You can always count on Nike to take it up another level and that's exactly what happened this morning when they unveiled the Free Mercurial Superfly HTM. A creation from the great minds of Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield, and Mark Parker, the sneaker combines Nike's latest innovations wrapped up in one shoe.

Parker had the opportunity to speak with U.K. sneaker writer Gary Warnett to chat about all things related to Flyknit, HTM, and the latest Nike Free Mercurial Superfly HTM.

Given the blend of Flyknit on the newest football-inspired HTM model, Parker states that Nike's still in the very early stages of the Flyknit and that there are many possibilities with the knitted technology that exist.

"So many of the Flyknit shoes you see today in running or basketball and football—with the Magista or the Mercurial—have a similar DNA," Parker said. "That DNA will actually evolve as the technology evolves."

Could Parker be hinting at more mashups and cross-over products in the future of Flyknit? We already saw it this year as Flyknit made its move to basketball (Kobe 9) and soccer (Mercurial Superfly), so it's not out of the realm of possibility.
