The boots feature an awesome colorway based on the Nike Mercurial Superfly IV with Cristiano Ronaldo's signature "Gala" look with a black body that fades to a shimmering gold with accents made of micro-diamonds. The diamonds are remnants of the cuts made to the precious gems when crafting their signature look. According to Nike:

"The commitment to keep chipping away at something already impressive reminded Nike's design team of Ronaldo's work ethic. While many see Ronaldo as the best in the world, he sees room for improvement."

The diamonds appear on the signature CR7 logo that can be found on the inside of the foot, right underneath the ankle and the gold accents continue to the stud. All in all, it's an awesome look for the man voted world's best player.
