Nike Mercurial Superfly V CR7 2016-2017 FG Black Gold - The crowning achievement in what¡¯s been another historic season for Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese forward was awarded with his second consecutive Ballon d¡¯Or today, presented by FIFA to the world¡¯s top player from the last year. To celebrate that accomplishment, the Swoosh has created the Nike Mercurial V CR7 Rare Gold, designed specifically for Ronaldo.
Gold predominates over the upper, a nod to the color that is earned by success ¡ª the Ballon d¡¯Or, of course, is gold. That fades, in a sort of burnished effect, to black through the heel and collar. And then the design becomes truly ornate.
The CR7 logo on the boot¡¯s medial side boasts an unheard of special effect ¡ª micro-diamonds were applied by hand to the logo, a tribute to Ronaldo¡¯s work ethic. Micro-diamonds, you see, are chipped off of larger stones as craftsmen refine the primary diamond, meaning the micro-diamond¡¯s existence is evidence of a work in progress. Here, they adorn the logos to reflect a commitment by Ronaldo to continue improving.
