Nike CR7 Soccer Cleats

Once a year, Cristiano Ronaldo releases his CR7s in a sick limited-edition colorway, and this year is no different. Inspired by his birthplace — the volcanic Portuguese island of Madeira — bursts of orange, red, and purple combine to create a look this ‘Savage Beauty’ colletion that’s just as hot as Ronaldo’s game. You can get the whole Nike CR7 ‘Savage Beauty’ collection at eastbay.com.

This might be a new color, but it’s still the same shoe you know and love. Dynamic Fit and NikeSkin for revolutionary lockdown, full-length carbon fiber chassis built to work naturally with the foot, direct-inject TPU studs that provide explosive traction in all directions, and a midsole made with a lightweight perforated sockliner to create low-profile cushioning.

And if you prefer the Vortex or the Victory over the Superfly, have no fear. The entire Mercurial line got a makeover. And even better than that, we have bags, balls, and shinguards, so you can grab the whole collection and look clutch all season. And it’s just in time for the holidays. This limited-edition collection is one you’re going to want, so we’d recommend throwing it on your Eastbay Wish List.

Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR

Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR

words // Brandon Richard

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.

One of the most surprising happenings this week in the world of soccer was the upset of Barcelona by Peñarol. A loss is tough to take for anyone, but when you’ve recently teamed two of the brightest stars in the sport and lose by a penalty kick from a yellow card, it’s that much worse.

As for the footwear, Lionel Messi switched up his Chameleon adidas F50 adiZero for a bright, new colorway, and goalkeeper Iker Casillas somehow found an even more attention-grabbing pair of Reebok U-Form than Messi wore.

Check out the latest shots from around the world of soccer below.
