Nike Celebrates Cristiano Ronaldo’s Legendary Season with Personalized CR Mercurial IX

I’ll be honest – Ronaldo deserves the Ballon D’or for the the season he had last year. I’m fairly sure his season will get overlooked because of Messi’s quantity of goals in this calendar year. However, Nike clearly agree Ronaldo had a pretty special season – and have launched a boot to embody this

Seven numbers are featured on the lateral side of the boot and reflected in a bold CR7 graphic on the medial side. The numbers signify CR’S record breaking goals scored and achievements during the 2011/2012 season and include the following:

  • 1st Spanish league title
  • 9 goals scored for Portugal
  • 14 games played for the national team

  • 27 years old in 2012

  • 60 goals scored in all competitions for club

To recognize this fantastic season, Nike has created a new boot in his honour – The CR Mercurial IX. The boot features a striking white upper and pink swoosh, with a bold CR7 graphic.
