Nike CR Mercurial IX

Cristiano Ronaldo put up some serious numbers last year, mainly in the form of goals. Goals for Real Madrid in their title winning season, goals for the Portuguese national team, and probably a ton of goals for your lazy ass when you played FIFA. To commemorate the buffet of goals CR7 gave to football last year, Nike developed a special edition CR Mercurial IX which Ronaldo will be wearing this Sunday, January 6 against Real Sociedad. The preview images are styled to be quite shadowy in order to highlight the personalised Ronaldo elements without giving away too much about the boot itself. The colourway on display this weekend will be white with a pink swoosh. Check out the first look at the personalized kick below:

Seven numbers are featured on the lateral side of the boot and reflected in a bold CR7 graphic on the medial side. The numbers signify CR’S record breaking goals scored and achievements during the 2011/2012 season and include the following:

• 1st Spanish league title
• 9 goals scored for Portugal
• 14 games played for the national team
• 19 first player to score against all 19 rival teams competing in La Liga in a season
• 27 years old in 2012
• 55 matches played in all competitions for club
• 60 goals scored in all competitions for club

100 pairs of the CR Mercurial IX white boot will be available at Nike.com and key online retailers February 7th
