Broken Love? Cristiano Ronaldo Cuts Off Collar Nike Mercurial Superfly Boots
Cristiano Ronaldo has surprised fans with the football boots in training this week.
Cristiano Ronaldo Cuts Off Collar By Himself Instead of Getting a Customized Pair By Nike
Cristiano Ronaldo cut off the collar of his Nike Mercurial Superfly boots. This unique customization has caught our attention as it is something we have not seen before on the boots of Nike's global figurehead.
This change suggests that a shift may happen between Ronaldo and Nike. Typically, Nike customizes boots for top players.
Back in 2014, for the World Cup, Nike created a custom version of the Superfly boots with a lower collar for Cristiano Ronaldo. Now, ten years later, Cristiano Ronaldo has cut off the collar by himself.
Cristiano Ronaldo is also not wearing the Nike Mercurial Dream Speed football boots, which were originally created for him. While they even feature the CR7 logo on the insole, they are now worn by several Nike top players but not by Cristiano himself.
This week, Cristiano's club, Al-Nassr, announced a deal with Adidas. The Saudi club was reportedly unhappy with the treatment of Niken and it's not being available fastly and globally.
