Seems like buying a pair of limited edition Nike CR7 Mercurial Vapor IX is going to prove a little more difficult than we expected!
The two main US sites to buy from, Soccer.com and WorldSoccerShop.com, are going to have 25 of the 100 pairs between them…….20 (5 pairs each of size 8, 9, 10, 11) and 5 (1 pair of size 8, 10, 11 and 2 pairs of size 9) respectively. But both sites are running sweepstakes that would allow you to buy the boots should you win. In other words, you need to enter a competition to be able to buy a pair. If you decide to enter and win, you are not obligated to pay the $300 required for a pair. If anything, this is the perfect platform for both companies to find out how popular the CR7 release really is. We haven’t heard much from other US based sites, but other than Nike selling some pairs themselves, I don’t see anyone else carrying them….do, if you want a pair, make sure to get your name in the sweepstakes!
