When one is as good as gold, a golden tribute is the most deserving! When Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo earned his golden award, he was rewarded with diamond-studded gold boots by Nike. The Mercurial CR7 Rare Gold boots have been made to commemorate Cristiano Ronaldo’s stellar year and tremendous achievement. Exclusively designed for the Portuguese professional footballer, the exclusive pair of Mercurial CR7 Rare Gold boots were given to him after he was awarded as the 2014 Ballon d’Or winner. This officially makes him the world’s best player for the second straight year.
