MERCURIAL SUPERFLY CR7 SHINES BRIGHT FOR CRISTIANO RONALDO
Cristiano Ronaldo is set to debut his New Mercurial Superfly CR7 this weekend in Madrid for the El Clasico!
The new boot features a classic black Mercurial Superfly silhouette with a shimmering twist and is available in both a high- and low-cut version.
Nike are the leaders in pushing the boundaries in boot technology and we certainly love the shimmer effect on the new Mercurial Superfly CR7, which is created through a new iteration of NIKESKIN technology.
“These new boots are well-suited for me because they’re elegant, beautiful, and they really shine in a new and different way,” said Ronaldo.
“We knew we wanted to create this shimmering effect on-pitch, and do something that would really stand out in the sun or under lights, but it took us many iterations to get it just right,” said Max Blau. “The idea was inspired by Cristiano, His technical ability makes him the best attacking player in the game, and the way he shows up in big matches and really shines, is what makes him the best there is.” Max Blau VP Global Football Footwear.
The Mercurial Superfly CR7 is also built specifically for speed. With a dynamic fit collar that locks down the player at full speed, the micro-textured Nike Flyknit upper provides a barefoot-like feel that gets the foot closer to the ball and closer to the ground for increased control. A highly responsive carbon-fiber plate is designed to further provide explosive speed in all directions.
The new Mercurial CR7 is also available in a Mercurial Vapor X silhouette, players can now decide which collar height is best for their feet, look and style. The Mercurial Vapor features a tongue-less upper that wraps the foot for locked-down fit, and a micro-textured synthetic upper. Nike have again pushed the limited and produced a truly ground breaking design and boot.
