Nike Have Released These Stunning Cristiano Ronaldo Boots After His Fifth Ballon d'Or

Nike Have Released These Stunning Cristiano Ronaldo Boots After His Fifth Ballon d'Or

Nike have marked Cristiano Ronaldo's record-equalling fifth Ballon d'Or by releasing some stunning new Mercurial Superfly boots.

The 32-year old superstar first claimed the prestigious individual accolade in 2008 when at Manchester United and went on to win it a further three times, in 2013, 2014 and 2016 respectively, after his world-record move to Real Madrid.

After yet another special year, where he scored 49 goals in 56 matches for Real Madrid in 2017, and contributed further with 13 assists in all competitions, the Portuguese has scooped the gong for the second year on the trot.

With a series of leaks, it's been common knowledge, for a while, that Ronaldo was going to be the recipient, but France Football officially announced him as the winner, with Ronaldo collecting his award in Paris last night.

And following his latest triumph, which takes him level with rival Lionel Messi, for the second year running, Nike have brought out a pair of limited edition, gold CR7 boots.

The boots have been named 'Quinto Triunfo', which translates to 'fifth triumph', and they contain the years Ronaldo has won the Ballon d'Or inside.

The Sporting CP youth product, who is easily Nike's most marketable athlete, will soon be wearing the boots on the pitch and they are set to be released later this month. Demand for the boots is expected to be big and those wanting to get their hands on them will have to be on the ball as only 1000 pairs are being made available.
