With Nike’s Mercurial Superfly VI stealing the headlines in early 2018, Cristiano Ronaldo was handed a limited edition version of the boot created by Kim Jones which accentuated the football boot’s cheetah inspiration.

Using the Superfly VI launch colour-way of Total Orange as the base for Kim Jones’ exclusive version, additional animal print graphics were applied across the entire Flyknit & NikeSkin upper.

Alongside the cheetah design, Kim Jones also applied his name across the split sole plate and newly styled Mercurial logo on the heel counter.

Cristiano Ronaldo wore these in the Champions League game against PSG on March 6th, at half-time in the game the boots went on sale on Nike.com Ronaldo himself grabbed himself a first half headed goal wear the Kim Jones Mercurial.
