One of the most hotly anticipated pairs of football boots of the last few months can finally be unveiled today, as Nike presented Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo with the new Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Safari CR7.
“Designed to the Exact Specifications of Cristiano Ronaldo” is the tagline for the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Safari CR7, and Nike say it epitomises the sentiment “Be Fast, Be Seen” – and a colourway like this makes it hard to argue with that statement!
Speaking of the colourway, we’re huge fans of the subtle ‘stripes’ that run through the spots of the design – presumably to give the boot the signature ‘flicker’ effect of the Superfly II.
Everything that you love about the standard Superfly II remains intact on the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Safari CR7:
Two NikeSENSE studs on the toe-end of each boot, increasing by up to 3mm depending on the firmness of the turf.
Flywire attaches the soleplate to the upper to for a complete fit and lightweight construction.
An ultra-strong carbon fibre last for maximum energy return from every step and strike and enhance durability
Cristiano Ronaldo will be donning the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Safari CR7 for the first time in the big Madrid derby on the 7th November and will be available in the shops from the 15th, with Pre-Orders starting today!
As for the more techy side of things, in the same manner as the rest of the Nike CR7 Safari range this boot is exactly the same as any other Superfly II in terms of weight and features, so it;s a relief to see that Nike have priced it accordingly at the same level as any other new Superfly II, £275/$400US.
