Christiano Ronaldo is a soccer superstar – you know it, Nike knows it and he knows it too. So seeing his new signature CR7 Mercurial IX boot in a subtle and stunning starry-skied print kinda makes sense, and it definitely sets a new standard for style in the cleats market. The blue and black treatment over the upper is supposed to represent the Star Vela Supernova, but to us it looks less like the remnants of an explosion and more like a majestic night sky from a fairytale – we dig it. Other nifty details include a seven star path print, which reps Ronaldo's famed shirt, and a big chrome Swoosh surely ripped right off a robot. The boot drop is paired with a dope collection of Nike Sportswear threads, including jackets, tees and pants. All of this intergalactic goodness is hitting Nike retailers now. News via Nike, INC.
