Cristiano Ronaldo is a soccer player many consider to be quite literally ‘out of this world.’ It is hard to compare his speed, skills, and technical ability to that of other players. When Nike footwear designers heard a commentator ask the question “Is Ronaldo from this planet?!” after he scored a free kick, they soon had their inspiration for the next line of CR7 footwear & equipment.
Nike took the idea of Ronaldo coming from somewhere beyond Earth and applied it to the new CR7 Collection. The Nike Mercurial IX CR7 Boot is designed to mimic a supernova – a celestial body that radiates energy – inspired by Ronaldo’s limitless nature on the pitch.
Using a celestial, galactic design, that of the Star Vela Supernova, the Mercurial IX boot looks like outer space. Specifically including a seven star path print, the design represents Cristiano Ronaldo’s infamous number seven jersey. Still touting the Mercurial’s traditional lightweight speed, these boots add a whole new idea to its legendary style.
Perfect for players who require speed combined with quick turns and tight cuts on the field, these boots will give you the power you need to explode past the competition.
The CR7 Collection also offers the sport classics clothing line that includes t-shirts, pants, jackets, and other accessories inspired by the same supernova overlay. Perfectly combining sports and luxury, the collection uses a lifestyle design that offers functional utility, comfort, and protection form the elements, while still exuding style. Everything something Ronaldo would wear himself, the designs are fit for a superstar.
Cristiano Ronaldo knows no limits. Now you can be limitless too.
