Cristiano Ronaldo launches new Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly

Published Add your comment

Nike have increased their pre-World Cup push of late with the tournament now less than 50 days away, and we have now been provided with an in-depth look at the Mercurial Vapor Superfly boots Cristiano Ronaldo will be wearing in Brazil this summer.

The Nike Magista, built for playmakers and launched by Andres Iniesta, was the first boot to be unveiled before the World Cup and utilises the revolutionary FlyKnit upper (basically a sock) to provide ‘adaptive support’.

But this is not just a one-off gimmick from Nike, who are using the same technology in the Mercurial Vapor Superfly shoes. FlyKnit has already been used extensively in the NBA, most notably with Kobe Bryant, and also in leisure-wear but the Magista and Mercurial Vapor Superfly are the first football boots to get the treatment.

Ronaldo will be the poster boy for the latest in a long line of Vapors - a product with which he has been associated for a number of years - and, according to Nike, the Portugal captain will be able to enjoy touch and grip like never before in these shoes.

Portugal may not be among the favourites to win the World Cup this year, but Nike will provide Ronaldo with every advantage they can to aid his and his country’s hopes of glory.

If you fancy yourself as something of a Ronaldo then you can buy the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly from May 26.
