Ronaldo Defies Gravity In Mercurial “Dream Speed”

Ronaldo Header

You have probably seen it already today; Cristiano Ronaldo defying gravity, soaring through the air at incredible heights to score one of the best headers you will see in the game. Unofficial numbers state that he was floating at 8ft 5in when he connected with the header.

When a moment like this happens, my first thought goes to checking what boots he was wearing at the time. For CR7 it is the Nike Mercurial Superfly “Dream Speed”, not a signature boot but one that is designed with him in mind. He has been wearing them the past few weeks with plenty of success already.

These are the first edition in a new series of releases follows the theme of the DNA of speed. It outlines technical details found in a Mercurial schematic, such as perforation patterns, registration marks, crop lines, color codes, a scale ruler and other graphic elements that show how the boot is built. The bold blue colorway takes cues from blueprints.

With a metallic finish, subtle sparkling laces and a magnified faded Swoosh on the upper, the boot embodies movement even when it’s standing still. A 10A and 73P code stand for the colors white and barely volt, respectively, the two hues displayed across Nike’s logo. On the lateral side of the heel, a 001 logo shines with an iridescent finish, signaling the first iteration of the series. The 44.7 km/h speed next to the strike zone represents a dream speed for any footballer.
