Football boot release: Nike Mercurial Vapor SuperFly CR7 III

When Real Madrid and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo gets involved in anything, it’s never a disappointment.

So when we received the news from Nike that they were about to release the 3rd generation of the CR7 Mercurial Vapor SuperFlys, we couldn’t wait to see the colourway.

And as you can see for yourself – they are different to say the least!

Our eyes at have just about recovered to write this up but the disruptive graphic treatment on the left and right side of the boot is truly stunning.

As CR moves into position or tracks back the left side of his boot reveals a subtle pinstripe effect with a clear screen and pattern treatment.  

In contrast, the right side features a bold contemporary stripe of Mach blue and Solar red which is a signature colour theme throughout the collection. 

Together, the boot graphics will create a striking flicker effect on pitch to stand out in the heat of game day competition. 

CR Mercurial Vapor Superfly III features an adaptive traction system that provides extra grip, traction and responsiveness to ensure one of the fastest players in the world capitalizes on the tightest of scoring opportunities.

Directionally positioned blades maximize cutting and allow for quick changes of direction, while secondary toe traction provides added toe-off power for those first critical steps to generate explosive speed.

Collectively, these design details allow greater speed and quickness in all directions. The second generation of Nike Flywire technology incorporated into the boot’s streamlined upper provides a lightweight, strong and more dynamic fit.

For the first time, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo’s signature Mercurial Superfly boot, Nike is also introducing a complete CR7 Collection blending the most innovative training and lifestyle products. We’ll have more on these later next week.

The new Nike CR7 Superfly III will be given their debut by the man himself against Valencia this Saturday. The boots will set you back around £280 and will be available, along with the whole collection, from the 18th of November.
