Nike have now revealed the third instalment, The Discovery.

Chapter 3 Discovery was inspired by a match CR7 has since dubbed M-Day. Featured on the heel of the boot is the date 06.08.03, which marked the day that Sporting Lisbon hosted a friendly with Manchester United.

Cristiano played so well in the game, that Manchester United players Rio Ferdinand and Nicky Butt were reported to have asked manager Alex Ferguson to sign him. Ferguson tells the story slightly differently, he said that the deal to sign CR7 was actually made the night before the game.

Either way, Cristiano Ronaldo was a Manchester United player two days later and made his debut for the club on the opening day of the 2003/04 season versus Bolton.

The Chapter 3 – Discovery CR7 football boots are remixed in a dark green colourway, inspired by CR7’s original club colours, with neon-bright accents which symbolise the bright shine of his talent.


Further detailing associating the boot to the special match in CR7’s history is found on the innersole, where the stadium outline is printed along with the match date.

Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Discovery Tech

The boot features and technology remain unchanged for the Mercurial Superfly V, the most advanced boot technology wise, that Nike have ever produced. Combining science with design, Nike have developed a boot where all components work together with one purpose: to allow the player to reach his full potential. The Mercurial Superfly V are lighter and stronger than ever before.

Supportive Lockdown

The Flyknit upper and Nike Grip System combine to provide a locked-down fit. The Flyknit yarns integrate areas of stretch, support and breathability for a second-skin fit.

Better Ball Control

Integrated textured speed ribs create the friction you need for maximum ball control and high-speed touch in all conditions.

Relentless Speed

The re-engineered, ultralight 3D Speed Plate fits your foot naturally for explosive speed. Precision-placed studs enable quick starts and stops.
