Nike unveiled the latest and what will surely be the most difficult to find Cristiano Ronaldo Mercurial soccer cleat ever on Tuesday. The Mercurial Vapor IX CR7 Special Edition is a tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo’s remarkable season and is limited to 100 pairs worldwide!
The #7 hit the 200 goals mark for Real Madrid in record pace conquering that summit against Malaga at the end of last season. It took him only 197 games to hit the milestone. He has since surpassed the mark of Hugo Sanchez and sits 5th place all-time on the Madrid scoring charts.
And let’s not forget that Ronaldo took home the FIFA World Player of the Year in January.
The cleat is almost as stunning as Ronaldo’s play on the field. The upper is a simple and clean smooth white with the black Nike Swoosh and shoe collar and interior. A little known fact by some fans is that Ronaldo is a fan of the white cleats. The cleat has the CR7 on the instep heel. The 7 is made to stand out with a gold line in the center of the number. The limited edition numbering on the heel of the out step also in black.
The sole is a special gold plate that will make this cleat shine in any conditions.
The cleat will make it’s on field debut on April 16.
Only 100 of this cleat will be made and the World Soccer Shop has 1 of a handful that made it to the U.S. If you want to have a piece of history, check back with World Soccer Shop on Wednesday for details on how to enter to win this rare soccer cleat.
