The Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR7 Special Edition soccer cleats celebrate the mercurial achievements of the world’s best soccer player in recent times, Cristiano Ronaldo. These special-edition shoes commemorate Ronaldo’s remarkable 2013-14 season, in which he averaged more than a goal a game, became the quickest player in his team Real Madrid’s history to reach 200 goals and was officially recognized by FIFA as the best player in the world.

The boot features a pure and elegant white upper, in keeping with Ronaldo’s personal affinity for white boots. The shiny gold cleats and a gold plate are a nod to Ronaldo’s status as the gold standard among contemporary soccer players.

The CR7 Special Edition shoes feature premium detailing, with each pair featuring a unique number on the heel—this number highlights the unit number of the shoes, which were released in a limited run of 100 pairs.
