Cristiano Ronaldo has been one of Nike premier acquisitions in soccer. Now, Nike is unveiling the CR7 Nike Free Mercurial Superfly. A “remastered” football boot for the streets, the shoe draws upon the aesthetic of the CR7 Chapter 2: Natural Diamond football boot. Here’s all the information from the Swoosh:
The CR7 Nike Free Mercurial Superfly blends a flexible Nike Free outsole with a lightweight and breathable Flyknit upper. The diamond aspect of the sneaker comes to life through chrome-colored lace tips and a no-sew metallic silver Nike Swoosh. The sockliner features a crackle pattern, which symbolizes how Ronaldo has crafted his game under pressure. Ronaldo’s signature, along with the statement, “Created to the Exact Specifications of Cristiano Ronaldo” can also be found on the sockliner.
The CR7 Nike Free Mercurial Superfly is available April 14 on the Nike Football App, Nike.com, and in select retail stores for $200.
This shoe looks very, very similar to the LunarEpic, but with different outsole tooling — Nike may be looking to “streamline” its silhouettes and technology. So, will you be picking up the latest Cristiano Ronaldo silhouette? Let me know in comments below.
