Some incredible new images dropped this week showing Cristiano Ronaldo wearing an upcoming boot release, as he shoots a commercial for Nike. The never before seen boots feature a large pink AIR logo on the instep of a primary white upper boot. They definitely look like a Mercurial Superfly, and are likely going to be the beginning of a new upgrade that features Nike Air Zoom technology.
If it is the case, the boot will be built around a full-length articulated Zoom Air bag that provides a unique underfoot sensation and enhanced energy return. To achieve this, the internal boot chassis was transitioned to the plate, leaving only the sockliner between the foot and the Zoom Air bag for maximum effect.
When will they be released? We imagine they will end up being a Summer release, as the Portuguese star returns to action. Details were leaked by the Sun, as they snapped some long range pics of the Man Utd star (and his body doubles) in action, shooting the commercial.
