Last fall, Cristiano Ronaldo introduced his own Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7, featuring a shimmering black colorway. For his spring boot, Nike continued with the glittery finish but in a silver colorway known as "Silverware" inspired by the covetable trophies given out to champions at this time of the season.
First Place Trophy for the Superfly
The Superfly is the star of the new CR7 line, built for speed with a sock-like feel and a glitzy silver colorway. It has a Dynamic Fit collar ensuring that the boot is like an extension of the body and locks down the foot at full velocity. The micro-textured upper gives the player a barefoot feel on the pitch, allowing their foot to be as close to the ball and ground as possible.
Vapor X Takes Silver
Although the Superfly's appearance shines in comparison, the Vapor X is a more understated beauty. The Vapor X has a micro-textured synthetic upper featuring a tongue-less design that naturally molds to the shape of the foot for a barefoot-like feel similar to the Superfly. A perforated sock liner mimics the foot’s contours offering low-profile cushioning from stud pressure and maximizing comfort. The boot is finished off with a lightweight nylon sole plate featuring reconfigured blades and studs that work to increase a player's stability and rotational toe-off traction.
