Inspired by international superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s love of all things fast, Nike Soccer introduces a new CR7 signature colorway of the Mercurial Vapor IX boot.
Ronaldo’s signature boot has been reworked with a fusion of white and neon orange, with a neon yellow and orange safari print inspired by the print that was first seen on the Mercurial Vapor Superfly II in 2010.
Beyond the design, the boot is equipped with an engineered upper that enhances support and touch, allowing Ronaldo to perform at high levels of speed and skill. The leather-like finish and Nike’s All Conditions Control (ACC) technology also enhance overall performance. The special treatment now used on all Nike boots ensures consistent touch in wet or dry weather conditions.
Horizontal black and neon yellow lines link the shoe to the collection’s overarching inspiration of speed. The “love to win, hate to lose” logo on the heel is a nod to Ronaldo’s inspiration as he explodes past his opponents towards goal.
You can pick up Ronaldo’s latest and several different variations of these Nike soccer shoes today.
