Cristiano Ronaldo went on a veritable tear last season, shattering La Liga records and cutting through the competition to reach football’s summit – a feat that currently has the gifted striker on a short list of finalists for the world’s best player award. In commemoration of Ronaldo’s numerous accolades, Nike has created a CR Mercurial IX that features a bold CR7 graphic and a series of numbers celebrating his many achievements. Reflecting his record-breaking goals scored and achievements during the 2011/2012 season, the silhouette showcases seven numbers on the lateral side of the boot, along with a bold CR7 graphic on the medial side. Cristiano Ronaldo will wear the new CR Mercurial IX in his next competitive match on Sunday, January 6, with 100 pairs of the white CR Mercurial IX to be sold on Nike.com and through key online retailers February 7.
