History of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Football Boots | The Timeline

History Cristiano Ronaldo Football Boots Timeline

Cristiano Ronaldo and Nike have extended their long running partnership with a contract that CR7 says is “for life”.

To mark the occasion, we’ve created a timeline of some of Cristiano’s key moments in Nike football boots. 

Cristiano Ronaldo has been in an agreement with Nike since 2003, in fact he even wore Nike boots before this first agreement. Since then he has become one of the most famous and marketable footballers on the planet and he has worn over 60 different Nike Mercurial football boots so far in his career.

We’ve selected some of them in the timeline below, which also pick out some of his most memorable career moments. The timeline begins with a 2003 Mercurial Vapor and ends with the CR7 Discovery.
