Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed his new Nike football boots. Ronaldo has confirmed that he will be wearing the Nike Mercurial Superfly VIII Elite Dream Speed 5 for the rest of the 2021-2022 season.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner will continue to wear those boots this term after finally ending his six-game goalless streak against Brighton on Tuesday at Old Trafford.

The 37-year-old is the face of the Nike Mercurial Boot line, which was established in 1998. The former Juventus star has worn the brand ever since his league debut for Sporting Lisbon in 2002.
Ronaldo has been part of more than 30 signature Nike Mercurial versions since his first in 2010. The new boots cost £245 a pair, and is apparently ’embodies Ronaldo’s power of the mind and meditation’.
