From the ground up

The new Nike CR Mercurial Vapor SuperFly II boot was inspired by and designed for Real Madrid and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo. Featuring the iconic ostrich-skin print originally designed by Tinker Hatfield for the Air Safari pack in 1987, this boot marks the first time the print has been applied to performance football footwear. This is also only the second time Nike has created a boot for an individual player (the first being Ronaldhino).

Cristiano Ronaldo will debut the CR Mercurial Vapor SuperFly II on pitch November 7. 2010 during “El Derbi” which features Madrid’s premier football teams.
