EXPLOSIVE SPEED. CR7 STYLE.
Twenty-five percent lighter than its predecessor, the Mercurial VIII delivers ground-gripping traction and a supportive fit for the quick moves and speed the game demands.
Nike All Conditions Control (ACC) technology helps you grip the ball for the same control in any weather.
Ultra-thin Teijin microfibre synthetic leather maximises support and ball control at high speeds. It’s specifically designed to fit around the foot like a second skin, delivering natural touch and enhanced traction while ensuring nothing goes to waste.
The multidirectional stud pattern is designed for instant acceleration and quick cuts in any direction. Inspired by racing spikes, grip zones in the forefoot allow for quick bursts of speed. Dual-density, direct-inject studs at the heel deliver durable traction, support and outstanding surface penetration for greater speed.
Contributing to this boot’s light weight is a full-length glass-fibre plate, which reduces weight while maximising strength. It helps transfer foot-planting energy directly to the studs, reducing stud pressure and providing instant support and stability.
The signature “Love & Hate” logo is inspired by Ronaldo’s philosophy on and off the pitch. The striking graphic features a heart-symbolising a love of winning-slashed by an X-representing a hatred of losing.
