Born on the Island of Madeira, the new Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Natural Diamond represents Chapter 2 in Cristiano Ronaldo’s rise to become one of the world’s greatest soccer players, and the challenges he faced when leaving home at the age of 12 for Lisbon. Determined to succeed at a high level of the game, the cleats acknowledge his natural talent and dedication to sparkle on the pitch just like a diamond.
Featuring a radical design that utilizes less material between the foot and ball, the Superfly's micro-textured Flyknit upper delivers an unprecedented barefoot feel to amplify your touch without compromising strength or durability.
Flywire cables, knitted directly into the one-piece upper, lock the eyelet into the outsole providing additional strength and lock down creating strength similar to a suspension bridge.
A special NikeSkin application that adheres to the top of the Flyknit upper prevents water getting in without adding layers while ACC technology provides the same grip on the ball in wet and dry conditions.
Designed for locked-down comfort at full speed, the Dynamic Fit Collar increases awareness of interaction with the ground and ball for a heightened sensation of the Superfly and as an extension of the foot.
Lower to the ground, the full-length carbon-fiber plate lowers the center of gravity for enhanced traction and it's flexible dual layer construction improves power transmission to the ground.
The Superfly traction system features redesigned and reconfigured blades with added cleat studs at the heel for increased stability and at the toe for rotational toe-off traction on firm ground.
