The writing "Forged to the exact specifications of Cristiano Ronaldo" surrounds the circle.
The grey and orange Nike Mercurial Superfly 5 CR7 Chapter 4 soccer boots draw inspiration from Ronaldo's rise to the top at Manchester United, after the previous chapters sketched his brining up until the all-important 2003 transfer to the English club. The colors of the Chapter Nike Mercurial Superfly Ronaldo 2017 cleats are inspired by the look of iron as it is being forged.
In particular, the switch from number 28 (at Sporting) to the iconic 7 at Manchester United, is the inspiration behind this design. “Alex Ferguson said to me: 'Listen, I want you to take number seven,'” recalls Ronaldo. “I was surprised because I knew the guys who had worn that shirt.”
Ronaldo is full of praise regarding his time at United. “In the five years that I was there, I learned the art of football. We won many things together. It was a dream for me,” he says.
In total, there will be seven boots detailing Cristiano Ronaldo's rise from his home island Madeira to one of the greatest footballers on this planet. There are no info about the Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 Cristiano Ronaldo boots yet, but expect them to be just as spectacular as the previous editions.
The Nike Mercurial Superfly V CR7 Chapter 4 "Forged for Greatness" cleats will go on sale on April 10th. They retail at a slightly higher price than regular editions of the model.
