2016 was a sensational year for Cristiano Ronaldo – a fourth Ballon d’Or, a Euro Championship winners medal and Champions League cup. To celebrate this success, Nike has launched a special limited edition boot, the Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Vitórias – a statement of accomplishment as a tribute to the iconic Real Madrid player.
These are nothing short of spectacular and just 777 pairs of individually numbered Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Vitórias boots will drop in early 2017. What a way to kick off the year!
This is a big one, and at 31, is it his last one at the top? Either way, you want a pair. And, so does everyone else. It’s aesthetically elegant and as well-chiselled as the man himself. It’s everything that a limited edition football boot should be.
The upper of the Vitórias features a stylish Pure Platinum upper with a subtle blue metallic shine and an elegant fade from heel to toe. The Metallic Gold plate is a nod to the gold trophies Ronaldo won this year and the heel graphic reads “Vitórias,” Portuguese for victories. The CR7 logo and Swoosh are further highlighted by an iridescent shimmer. Clean, simplistic, assured. Nothing to prove, no numbers to call out achievements, no vibrant colourways. Clinical, just like the man himself.
