Elegant. Beautiful. Two words you probably wouldn’t put together when talking about a soccer boot, but Nike has managed to garner that sort or response from none other than Cristiano Ronaldo. Unveiled today and set to hit the pitch in Madrid this weekend, the new make up of the soccer boot, the Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7, features a with a new twist on the upper. Created with a new version of NIKESKIN that literally reflects against the black upper, the shoe retains the same highly responsive carbon-fiber plate and the micro-textured Flyknit upper.

Built specifically for speed, the the Nike Mercurial SuperFly CR7 was “inspired Cristiano,” aid Max Blau, VP Global Football Footwear. “His technical ability makes him the best attacking player in the game, and the way he shows up in big matches and really shines, is what makes him the best there is.”

In addition to the Mercurial CR7, the Mercurial Vapor X silhouette is available with a lower cut ankle. The Mercurial Vapor also features a tongue-less upper that allows for a more locked down fit.

Both the Mercurial Superfly CR7 and Vapor X will be available to purchase exclusively through the Nike Football App for iOS and Android starting Oct. 23, and more broadly through on Oct. 24. The full CR7 collection will be available at beginning Nov 6.
