Some soccer players like to wear the same kind of shoes as their favorite soccer hero, so it should come as no surprise that so many people are now opting for Nike Mercurial Vapor shoes, which is one of the favorites of soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.
This Portuguese star is considered to be one of the best players of all time and is in fact (a the time of writing) the second most expensive soccer player in history. Therefore, it is only common sense that people would want to have just a little bit of his magic on their feet.
Feel special in a pair of CR7’s cleats
Whilst it might seem silly to some to base a cleat buying decision purely on the fact that a famous player wears the same shoes, there is something to be said for copying the choice of a such a successful player. Cristiano Ronaldo is unlikely to be wearing poor quality cleats after all, and sometimes knowing that the cleats you’re wearing are the same as someone who you’ve seen ripping up defences and bending in impossible free kicks makes you think why not me as well?
Here at soccer gear reviews we remember owning a pair of Diego Maradona boots during the late 1980s and whilst they never made us play like the great man they did give us just a little bit of extra swagger every time we took to the field. They were a really nice pair of cleats as well!
The New Cleats That Will Have You Playing Like Ronaldo
Ronaldo has a number of soccer records to his name, including being the first European player to reach 40 goals in a single season, and he was able to perform that feat two years in a row. Playing at Manchester United, Real Madrid, and with more than 100 appearances for Portugal, the type of soccer shoes that he wears is very important to his reputation and his game.
Whilst CR7s strut and arrogance may put some of us off him, it’s hard to argue with his football talents, and he is a genuine megastar, did you know that he had the 5th highest social rank in the world in 2012, bettered only by Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Katy Perry.
These Nike Mercurial firm ground soccer shoes have been worn by Ronaldo in a number of of really big games, and are believed to be amongst his favorite soccer shoes. While they may not give you the kind of skills that he has, they can certainly improve your game.
Nike Mercurial Vapor IX FG Firm Ground Soccer Shoes
The Nike Mercury Vapor IX firm ground soccer shoes are one of the most popular soccer shoes ever produced by Nike. These are available in a number of different colrs and are considered to be one of the highest quality fully molded soccer shoes available. The shoes are made from a unique Teijin microfiber material, with a textured dot pattern that will help you to keep full control of the ball in any weather. They are made for speed and accuracy, and provide the comfort normally only found in leather shoes, but with the minimal weight and durability of synthetic shoes.
These extremely fast cleats have all conditions control technology built into them, making them ideal for wet and dry conditions. They weigh in at just 6.6 ounces and have a unique look that certainly brings to mind the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Whilst looking at these cleats we were particularly impressed with the grip that was present on the soles and we feel they would give excellent foot support for such a light shoe. Also, the build of these boots suggest that they would give you something extra in your spring when competing for headers (in our case they wouldn’t make up for our chronic lack of heading ability though!).
Nike Mercurial Vapor IX SG Pro Soft Ground Soccer Shoes
This year has brought us some new and innovative soft ground soccer shoes, including the Nike Mercurial Vapor composite shoes. These are made with the highest quality injection molded microfiber, and are contoured to fit your feet from the first time you put them on. Some of the greatest names in the game are now wearing the Nike Mercurial Vapor, in part because they allow you an extra level of control over the ball in wet or dry conditions, no matter what your level of expertise.
These shoes have a built in sock liner as well as direct injection bladed and screw and studs that many of the professionals prefer. These weigh 9.8 ounces and are considered to be one of the longest lasting soft ground soccer shoes Nike has ever made.
We are impressed with these cleats, the build of the shoes suggests that they could considerably enhance your ball swerving skills and we’d imagine that a number of your speculative shots could very well find the back of the net whilst wearing these shoes.
