Following his success at FIFA’s Football Awards last night, Nike have commemorated Cristiano Ronaldo being acknowledged as the world’s best player with special edition boots, the Mercurial CR7 Melhor (Portuguese for “best”).
The boots build upon Ronaldo’s Chapter 5 collection, with a few extra premium touches. For instance, the pure platinum finish on the CR7 logo and chrome finish on the sole plate pay homage to the colours of his latest individual trophy. The boots also feature a unique 3D-reflective treatment on the Nike Swoosh, designed to shine when playing under lights.
Cristiano Ronaldo will be the first to wear the special edition boots, which are available from today in limited quantities.
The Real Madrid star won the award for Best Men’s Player at the 2017 Best FIFA Football Awards in London last night, beating rivals Lionel Messi and Neymar.
After helping his team win the Champions League and La Liga in the 2016-17 season, it was also a successful evening for Ronaldo’s manager, Zinedine Zidane, who was named Best Coach.
Cristiano scored twice in Real’s 4-1 Champions League Final victory over Juventus, and scored 25 times in 29 La Liga appearances last season.
This is the second edition of the Best FIFA Football Awards since the organisation ended it’s association with the the Ballon d’Or, which has been awarded by France Football Magazine since 1956, and Ronaldo was also the first recipient of the Best Player prize in the first edition of the awards, which were held in January.
