2018 Nike Mercurial Superfly V – New Feature Review

Welcome in the fifth chapter of the Cristiano Ronaldo life story as told through his boots, “Cut To Brilliance”. As is the case with all CR7 releases, this one has a visual design intended to capture the interest of other players on the pitch. The inclusion of a vibrant multi-colored Flyknit is intended to mimic the multitude of colors that diamonds refractact, sitting on top of a white base that sparkles under the lights. It is a simple, yet intriguing design. Obviously, there is huge interest in this release and its design, the CR7 Superfly has continually been one of the top selling boots on the market.

On this one, Nike switches to the story of Ronaldo’s move to Real Madrid and what has happened since. In the summer of 2009, he joined his current club for what was then a world record transfer fee. At least 80,000 fans showed up to welcome his move from Manchester to Madrid!

Other key design notes to highlight include a textured Nike Mercurial Superfly V hit on the medial side of the 2018 Nike Mercurial Superfly V boot from scarpe-calcio.com. It provides a tactile representation of the diamond graphic, while the heel counter provides a top-down view of a brilliant-cut diamond accompanied by the date of Ronaldo’s Madrid debut. The high heel reads “El Sueño Del Niño” (the dream of the child) as these were the words Ronaldo shared with Nike’s design team to describe how he felt about joining his new team.
