NIKE have teamed up with their main ambassador Cristiano Ronaldo to release a brand new pair of special edition Mercurial Superfly boots; the CR7 Discovery.
The boots mark the moment Cristiano Ronaldo played his last match for Sporting Lisbon, aged just 18 years old. It was August 6th, 2003 and after facing Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United, the English club would not leave Portugal without the young Ronaldo.
It is that moment, that match that has inspired the new CR7 Chapter 3 boots.
This release sees 4 types of footwear releases, as detailed below.
