Yesterday, 5-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo impressed in the debut of his special edition “Quinto Triunfo” Superflys at the FIFA Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi. As per usual, he managed to make it a scoring debut vs Al-Jazira, while introducing his own customized version of the new golden boots on pitch.
Quinto Triunfo, which translates as “Fifth Win”, is another signature release intended to celebrate CR7’s personal accomplishments through 2017. As with his previous award-themed boots, gold is prominently featured. Unlike previous boots, “CR7” appears on the heel counter, but not on the medial side. This creates room for additional placement of a very special Swoosh that adorns both sides. Within the Swoosh and visible with movement, the years of his previous and current Ballon d’Or awards appear: 2008, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017.
With only 1,000 pairs released worldwide, this is the type of boot that immediately garners collector’s attention. The rush to snag a pair is going to be intense, so today is going to be a significant day.
How can you get a pair? Limited quantities are coming to SOCCER.COM later today, we will update right when they go live so stay tuned.
