Good players get shaped by the game around them, great players impose their style of play and shape the game around them. Over the last three years, we've been on a journey with Nike witnessing the launches of Chapter 1-4 of the signature Mercurial boots following the biggest moments and sections of Cristiano Ronaldo's career.
The previous boots from the first four chapters of CR7's career highlighted his birth on the volcanic island of Madiera, his raw talent as a kid that landed him in an Academy, his discovery by Sir Alex Ferguson at Sporting Lisbon and the years he forged himself into one of the world's best in Manchester. And now, Nike is ready with a new chapter.
The Nike Mercurial Superfly V CR7 Chapter 5: "Cut to Brilliance" is available on unisportstore.com right here.
The Nike CR7 Chapter 5 Mercurial 'Cut to Brilliance' tells the story about Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Real Madrid, for what was then a world record transfer fee of €94 million, and the Portugeese becoming a true superstar. CR7 scored in his first game with the club and hasn’t stopped scoring since, becoming the fastest to score league goals at every imaginable milestone: 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and counting. He also holds distinction as the first player to score against every team in La Liga in one season. Ronaldo's brilliance on the pitch has shone like a diamond and that became the inspiration for his Chapter 5: Cut to Brilliance boots.
