Nike Mercurial CR7 “Ballon d’Or” Collection!

Four “Ballon d’Or” tropihes and four boots made to celebrate each of the great year Cristiano Ronaldo have had! 

The first pair, Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR SE Fg 100, was actually released in 2013 and not for Cristiano winning the Ballon d’Dor but for his record breaking year at Real Madrid!


The numbers on the heel represents different records or achievements he had that season:

  • 1 first Spanish championship
  • 9 goals for Portugal
  • 14 games played for the national team
  • 19 the first player to score against all 19 La-Liga teams
  • 27 years old in 2012
  • 55 games played in all tournaments for his club
  • 60 goals scored in all tournaments for his club

There was only 100 pairs released of this boot!

Next boot is the Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR SE Sg-Pro 100. This boot was revealed soon after Cristiano Ronaldo was named FIFA Player Of The Year in 2014! This pair was also produced just 100 pairs globally and is one of the most sought boots on the market. This time Nike kept the design simple but still classy. Together with the white and black coloured upper Nike added a beautiful gold soleplate. Everything about this boot is spot on!

Cristiano Ronaldo won the 3rd Ballon d’Or for the season 2014 and again Nike didn’t let us down by releasing the next boot – Nike Mercurial Superfly IV CR SE Sg-Pro “Rare Gold”.

Again there was made only 333 pairs in the world and lucky enough I got the pair mine numbered 333 of 333. I actually tried to buy these when they were released exclusively via Nike Football App in march 2015, but they sold out in seconds… They were retailed at 300£ GBP! As so often I had to wait few months before I found a pair on eBay, got them for a cheeky 250£ 😛


So we seen what Nike have delivered in the past few years, now we could expect something special for Cristiano Ronaldo winning his 4th Ballon d’Or for the season 2016. And we did! The new boot is called Nike Mercurial Superfly V CR SE Fg “Vitórias”! The is craeted to embody C.Ronaldo’s iconic personality as one of the most decorated player in the world. 


What an increadible year he had. He won the Champions League with Real Madrid and even a bigger achievement was leading his nation to glory for the first time in their history. Again the design is pretty simple but still stunning as the earlier models.


This boot is also a limited edition with only 777 pairs made in the world, I got the pair numbered 230 out of 777. A big bonus is that the boots are all individually numbered!


Thank you for reading!

All Of My Vapor III

Here is an update of my Nike Mercurial Vapor III collection. 

And if you don’t know anything about this boot: 

Nike Mercurial Vapor III was released in 2006, for the FIFA World Cup in Germany. And if
Mania was regarded as a peak of Adidas Predator range then we could say the same thing about
Nike Mercurial Vapor III. 


Nike released 15 different colorways of the Vapor III. Most special of them is the Nike Mercurial
Vapor III 10th Anniverary (black/white) they were a limited edition 1000 pairs made to celebrate
10 years of Nike Mercurial! 

In the picture you can also see a pair that is completely gold, this colourway was never released as I painted them myslef 😛

Nike Mercurial Superfly

The release of Nike Mercurial Superfly I in 2009 was truly a beginning of something big. The new technology in the Superfly I was called “Flywire”. This Flywire technology allowed Nike to reduce weight without losing strength.


You can compare the Flywire technology with cables in a bridge, it supports players foot were needed. The boot weighted only 185 grams and back in 2009 that was very light. 


Nike added the Tepex carbon fibre soleplate to the boot which really made the Superfly I unlike any other boot on the market.

Today Nike is already making the 5th generation of Superflys. Nike have kept the details on Superfly V that we can expect on a proper Superfly, the boot has to be light, durable and good looking, all this components makes the boot look fast! 

Only thing that I know some supporters will be missing is the clean Tepex carbon-fibre soleplate, but I think it works with this new designed soleplate. The new plate is constructed by a single of plastic and a whole new level of stud-layout! The studs have all the same shape just placed in different direction, this means that the player can accelerate, stop and change directions in a much faster way than before!

Nike Mercurial Superfly V “1998”

Honestly this project is one of the coolest thing this year! I had planned to do this custome makeover since early 2016. But I knew I had to wait for the right Superfly V boot to be released. 


So I decided to find a pair of Superfly V that basically had the right base colour, I chose the Nike “Elite Pack”!


As so often I trusted my good friend @maalinetti to help me with the paintjob. He never dissapoints me!

So my goal was to recreate the most famous boot in Nike Mercurial history, the Mercurial 1998 R9, by using the latest technology provided by Nike! 


Always looking forward to new projects and always happy when they turn up as great as these!

I promise that there will be more in the future, thank you for reading!

Nike Mercurial Superfly V CR7 Chapter 3: “Discovery”

Nike Mercurial Superfly V CR7 Chapter 3: “Discovery”!

This chapter tells about how the talented and only 18 year old C.Ronaldo was spotted by the legendery coach of Mancester United, Sir Alex Ferguson.


The colours of the boot is made to reflect his time in Sporting Lisbon. On the lateral side of the boot you can see some similiar wave-lines going alongside of the boot, reflecting back to the Mercurial Vapor I that he wore that night back in the day. 


The numbers on the heel 06, 08 and 03 is for the date (6th of August 2003) when he was discovered by Manchester United in a friendly game still playing for Sporting Lisbon! He was voted man of the match!

Nike Mercurial Superfly II Windchill

These are currently for sale, Nike Mercurial Superfly II “windchill” from 2011! One of the coolest colourways that was released in the Superfly II generation. Weighting just 210g. 


At the first sight the boot looks like clean white and then transfers to a bright combination of colours. 


These boots are 7.5uk 8.5us 42eu and tried on once, so basically as new! I’m asking a price of 150£+shipping.
