Nike have been for a trip to outer space and brought back a boot for their very biggest star. It is a boot that knows no boundaries, designed for the player, who has no limitations and will not be held back. Here at Unisportstore.com we now take a closer look at the boot and warmly welcome the Nike Mercurial Vapor CR7 Galaxy to planet Earth.
There are stars, and then there are the players, who outshine them. Cristiano Ronaldo is, if not the world best player, certainly in the top two. His astronomical goal-getting record playing for Real Madrid still counts more goals scored, than games played. It is safe to conclude that Cristiano Ronaldo is and always has been, without limits. It is therefore only appropriate that Ronaldo's newest signature boot gets its inspiration far from this planets atmosphere, all the way out in space, where giant stars like Ronaldo thrive.
The Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR7 is a boot that dares represent one of the worlds greatest footballers, Cristiano Ronaldo. It is bold, innovative and made with a design that exudes confidence. Something you must have in abundance, if you want to be the very best and carry an entire team and nations World Cup aspirations on your shoulder.
One of the guys behind the design, Nike's Denis Dekovic says: We saw a match where Ronaldo found the back of the net from a freekick. The commentator asked if Ronaldo is even from this planet. Afterwards they realised that Ronaldo's way of playing is very similar to the definition of a supernova star; a stellar explosion that creates immense energy. And right there we had our inspiration for the design.
The concept of a star that shines brighter then any other reflects Cristiano's style, speed and the thought that he, as a player, knows no boundaries very much similar to the outer boundaries of the universe. Exaplins Dekovic about the boot that displays a nice starry night sky.
There have however not been any changes to the boot behind the sharp pattern. The Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR7 Galaxy is designed with the same space-age technology, which we know from former Ronaldo signature boots. The boots upper is made of the Japanese synthetic microfibre from the Teijin experts. It delivers a soft and supple upper, with Ronaldo's preferred leather-emulating finish. The upper is naturally also equipped with Nike's All Conditions Control (ACC), which ensures the same grip in wet weather, as you would otherwise have in dry conditions.
When you with your football play are attempting to break through the barriers of atmosphere and into the universe you need speed og plenty of speed. You certainly get that with this boot, which is optimised to get you to the ball first in all the games situations. Weighing in at just 185 grams, it is not a boot that holds back, even when you lift off from the ground and blaze a trail through the sky.
Even though Cristiano Ronaldo's success is very contemporary, it is still a colourway with room to celebrate the proud Mercurial tradition. It started with the Brazilian Ronaldo, who back then enchanted the world with blinding dribbling ability, pace and innovative boots. On the new Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR7 Galaxy they have once more found room for the classic Nike-swoosh on the medial and lateral-side of the boot, which leads us back to the classic Mercurial.
Astronomical pace does however not come on its own, it requires a stud-configuration, which is optimised to propel you to forward into the world. With the bladed-studs under the front foot and a V-shaped stud in the middle, Ronaldo's new boot has phenomenal grip and lets you power past your opponent and leaving them with their jaws on the ground like they had just seen an alien.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a player, who is brave enough to stand by his undisputed talent. He demands attention and for his boots, he always picks the sharp designs that scare of the more conservative football fans. This boot is made in the Cristiano Ronaldo spirit. It is his mentality and way of thinking, which is fused into the boot and down to the smallest detail. Nothing is left to coincidence, because when you want to be the best, you need the right equipment.
With the new Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR7 Galaxy, Cristano Ronaldo has got a boot, which is made for a player like him. A player from a planet of his own. Because even though he plays for the Galacticos, a team of full superstars, Ronaldo is still the star that shines brightest.
