Footy Boots was front and centre in London last night as Nike launched the eagerly awaited Superfly II.

Battersea Power Station was transformed in to a truly unique space as Cristiano Ronaldo along with Nike big-wigs and designers revealed the football boot to around 300 members of the media.

We managed to get some fascinating interviews which we will be sharing with you soon but in the meantime, we thought you’d like to see our pictorial history of a very interesting evening.

    You know…it’s nice to have a read with a bit of humor!

    If I wanted a boring play-by-play I’d go on the Nike website!

    Nice pics – Are there any more pics like the ones from the twitter?
    I was following all yesterday evening and I loved all the pics of the old Vapors – so many good memories!

    How can it be that the new Superfly is £25 more expensive than the original 100% carbon-fibre Superlight, which was a prototype made in just 2000 pairs!? That’s beyond me..

    To be fair to the boot, if Nike hits the right colourway it will look absolutely stunning (I’m sure it’s a brilliant boot nevertheless)
