Here at Sneaker News, we’re not usually in the habit of covering soccer shoes, but yesterday’s launch of Ronaldo’s new Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II warranted some attention thanks to the heavy use of a beloved Nike print. The fully Safari’d out soccer cleat marks a new day for the marraige of performance and style, proving that maybe it’s not such a bad idea to spice up athletic footwear models with a bolder look. If you saw the coverage of the CR Safari boot launch yesterday and thought to yourself, ‘These are fresh, but I don’t play soccer,’ well then maybe these are for you. This Lunar Gato IC is a new indoor soccer shoe also decked out in full Safari print with vibrant Total Orange accents, and while it’s intended for soccer action, we know that there are some sneakerheads out there that will prove that these just might be street wearable. If you’re a fan of Safari and are willing to think outside of the box a little, you can find the Lunar Gato IC now at NikeStore.
