Nike Mercurial CR7 Football Boot - Chapter 3
Nike Football have unveiled the Third Chapter in the Nike Mercurial CR7 x Cristiano Ronaldo Football Boot collection that tells the Story of Cristiano Ronaldo and how he became one of the best footballers of a Generation. Chapter 3 of 7 is all about discovery and tells the story of How Cristiano Ronaldo was spotted by Manchester United as he played for his hometown club Lisbon.
At the Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon Cristiano Ronaldo wearing number 28 had only just established himself as a regular in the first team after two years shining in the youth team. Cristiano helped create 2 goals, leading to a 3-1 victory over a team that he would end up playing for in Manchester United. He showcased his supreme skills in front of his soon to be coach and team who prompted then coach Sir Alex Ferguson to sign the player as he was one of the most exciting young players any of them had ever seen. A week later, the news broke that he had signed with Manchester United for a record breaking £12.24 million, making him at the time, the most expensive teenage footballer in English football history.
That game is the back story to the design of this chapter of football boots and sees the Seaweed Green colour of the boots that are inspired by the team he was playing for with updated Volt colourways for up to date on pitch style. Added features silver dot graphics, as well as a subtle reflective wave design as a nod to the Mercurial Vapor I boots he wore in 2003 offer great traction for the ball to showcase supreme skill like Ronaldo. The numbers 06, 08 and 03 (day, month, year) etched on the heel counter commemorate the date of his discovery in this match, with added CR7 logo highlights that have become his showcase.
