This Thursday, October 28th, Nike will unveil Cristiano Ronaldo’s newest signature boot – the Nike Mercurial Superfly II. Sure to turn some heads this year on the soccer pitch, the shoe will feature the long-lived Safari print covering the entire boot, with a prominent orange Swoosh placed on the upper and a smaller Swoosh on the medial side. The choice of colorway is interesting to say the very least, as this marks one of the truly rare occasions where a legendary Nike-specific design element made prominent by streetwear will be used on a strict performance shoe like the Mercurial Superfly II. Also included in this preview is a teaser video in which a top-secret package containing the new Ronaldo boot is being transported overseas from Nike’s most top secret offices in Beaverton, OR, with a cameo appearance by legendary Nike designer and Safari-print originator, Tinker Hatfield. More information will be unveiled on October 28th, but in the meantime, take a look at the preview images of the all-new Nike Mercurial Superfly II after the jump and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates coming soon.
