Cristiano Ronaldo continues to rack up achievements in soccer, ranging from three Ballon d’Or awards and recently scoring overing 500 career goals to become the all-time top scorer in Real Madrid history. With more records still to be set or broken, a unique edition of Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 boot is unveiled to commemorate his success.
Dubbed “Savage Beauty,” this variation consists as the first chapter of Nike chronicling Ronaldo’s past through a new series of seven Mercurial Superfly CR7 boots. A new rendition will be unveiled over the next several seasons. This iteration essentially takes its cues from Madeira, the volcanic Portuguese island where he was born. Designed with expert artisans from Montebelluna, Italy, the vibrant, lava-inspired print in shades of Orange, Red and Purple flow across the boot’s side panels and towards its toe box which perfectly juxtaposes against its Black composition.
Creating a deceptive appearance in which it appears that the boots are on fire in blazing speed, contrasting iridescent White Swoosh branding on the forefoot and heel complements the overall design. You can find this special edition model at select Nike retailers later this week.
I’m a big fan of Ronaldo and this latest design on the silhouette is pretty sweet. I like the graphic flowing across to make it seem as if it’s on fire. Aside from that, I’ve never worn a pair of soccer cleats, so I can’t really justify its performance.
