Nike unveils its all new Mercurial Superfly CR7 futbol cleat for Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, who will debut it this weekend.

Designed for speed, the boot incorporates a dynamic fit collar that ensures the player is locked down at full speed, while the micro-textured Flyknit upper provides greater ball control. A responsive carbon-fiber plate on the underside helps in changes in all directions. And, a shimmer effect was developed through a new iteration of NIKESKIN technology to represent the shimmering effect on the pitch when under the sun or under lights.

The Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 will be available in both a high and low versions, dropping Thursday (Oct. 23), exclusively through the Nike Football App, followed by a general release on Friday (Oct. 24) at Nike's online store.
