Last night Ronaldo gave the boot its full début in stunning fashion.
At home Real Madrid hosted Real Sociedad, and they would ultimately have to thank Ronaldo for his contribution, which proved critical to the king-clubs success.
Ronaldo celebrated his new Nike CR Mercurial IX-boots with two goals the one from a particularly brilliant freekick and this helped real to a 4-3 victory in a high octane game, that among other drama, saw Real-keeper Adan dismissed with a red card, after just 5 minutes.
Nike have produced the CR Mercurial IX-boot especially for Ronaldo, and it is made to mark the Portugueses sensational 2011/2012-season. The question is; do Nike know something we don't? - Seeing as though the Ballon d'Or-prize is just around the corner, where Ronaldo is nominated.
