No. 4 – Nike CR7 Mercurial Vapor IX
Released: January 2013
Availability: 100 Pairs Worldwide
Nike is not a company to stand by and let others take the plaudits. With Lionel Messi scooping Ballon d’Or after Ballon d’Or and award after award, Nike focused on getting Cristiano Ronaldo back into the spotlight with his own custom boots. Now, it doesn’t take much for Ronaldo to steal the attention in the first place, but the marketing power behind Nike immediately creates mass interest in such a limited edition release – only 100 pairs were released! The colors used were pretty straightforward, but the CR7 hit on the side and the numerals below the heel gave it an unmistakable look. The numbers reflect CR’S record-breaking goals scored and achievements during the 2011/2012 season

Nice post. I think RVP's boots are the best because they are unique to him only and you can't even find that anywhere. It is not like they were made for a special occasion, he wears them all the time.
By the way, have anyone noticed Brandon Marshal from the Chicago bears wearing hyper venom during the Thursday night game? Maybe you guys can write a post about NFL players wearing soccer shoes. I know mostly will be kickers and punters but it might nice to know who wears soccer cleats.
I agree, I have seen more Nike id and great colorways on display from NFL kickers and punters, than I have seen all year from professional soccer.
