Bold Choice | Brazilian Referee Wears Nike Mercurial Cristiano Ronaldo Boots

You should not do this in La Liga. Brazilian referee Igor Junior Benevenuto laced up in Nike Mercurial Cristiano Ronaldo Boots in the Brazilian Cup match between Fluminense and Paysandu.

Igor Junior Benevenuto is well-known for wearing the black Nike Mercurial Cristiano Ronaldo Boots in Brazil, while we just couldn't trust our eyes when we saw that the referee was wearing Cristiano Ronaldo's Signature Boots.

Brazil Referee Wears Nike Mercurial CR7 Gala Veloce Boots

Close-up of the Benevenuto's Nike Mercurial Cristiano Ronaldo Boots.

Benevenuto wore a cheap version of the Nike Mercurial Cristiano Ronaldo Gala Boots, which were initially released in late October 2014. The close-up picture reveals that he bought the second-best low-cut version of the Nike Mercurial CR7 Boots, the Nike Mercurial Victory V CR Gala Cleat.

Featuring a design that brings Cristiano Ronaldo's post-match life to the pitch in an array of diamond graphics and shimmering finishes, there is hardly any more unsuitable black boot for a refereer.

Most remarkably, the black Nike Mercurial CR7 Veloce Boots even boast the large CR7 branding on the instep.

While we think that pro players and referees should avoid wearing signature boots, we might have been able to understand if he would have got the classy black Nike Tiempo Legend Premium Totti Boots, which feature no big Totti branding.
