The Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Silverware is a stunning new colorway that pays homage to Ronaldo's voracious appetite for trophies and silverware. The shimmering effect was first seen in black in an October release, but with the season hitting its business end and Ronaldo eyeing silverware, it's only fitting that a silver version be introduced.

Like its predecessors, the Mercurial Superfly CR7 Silverware edition is built for speed, which is crucial to Ronaldo's game. Its Dynamic Fit collar makes wearers feel like their boots are an extension of their body. Meanwhile, a micro-textured Nike Flyknit upper provides a barefoot-like feel that gets the foot closer to the ball and to the ground for increased control. A responsive carbon-fiber plate provides explosive speed on the pitch.

This shoe is a great example of design that is both creative and meaningful but also functional, which is a perfect analogy to Ronaldo's skill-set on the pitch.
