Cristiano Ronaldo Story, Chapter 6: CR7 Born Leader

Nike Superfly CR7 Chapter 6

Nike has dropped the latest instalment in the Cristiano Ronaldo story told through boots, bringing us Chapter 6: Born Leader. Built using the latest Mercurial Superfly 360 Elite silo, there is an added element of surprise to go with this release.

CR7 never gives up on his team. On the pitch, he does the impossible to lead his team to victory. On the sideline, he pours his passion into their veins. CR7’s Chapter 6 Mercurial Superfly tells the story of CR7’s ultimate commitment to his team.

Chapter 6 in the series of seven CR7 boots focuses on Ronaldo’s role as the captain of his national team. As such, the palette of the boot complements Portugal’s traditional colors. “When you play for your country you want to win, you want to defend your colors,” confirms Ronaldo.

If you look back at his international career, it has been very impressive. He captained Portugal for the first time on February 6, 2007, the day after his 22nd birthday. The following year, he became the federation’s standing skipper and has since gone on to set the record for most captaincies of his country — a record he extends with every Portugal appearance. Even when injured and unable to play (as he was in the final of the 2016 European Championship), Ronaldo has made a positive impact on his team through his leadership.

There is a lot of detailing that makes these just that extra bit special, including;

  • A nod to Portugal’s historical sea exploration lies within the Swoosh. On the lateral side of the heel, the captain’s “C” is incorporated into a raised applique of the sphere (an armillary sphere graphic is also featured on the boot bag).
  • Black at the collar blends to hyper jade toward the sole making these the first Mercurial 360 boots to feature more than one knit color. The cross on the heel tab ties back to the cross within the Portugal National Team collection.
  • The cross pattern underfoot the Mercurial 360 is aligned with the pattern on Portugal’s new away jersey.
