In celebration of Euro 2008, Nike is creating many football inspired makeups of the Dunk including this pair made to resemble Ronaldo’s signature boots on not only the upper but also the sole. Like the Nike Mercurial R9, these Dunks also feature Zoom Air.
Ronaldo's signature boot, the Mercurial R9 debuted in 1998 in what was arguably a golden era for football boots. Up against the legendary adidas Predator, the Mercurial R9 was the beginning of a new era for the football world and Nike that stressed lightweight minimalistic boots on the pitch.
His Brazilian inspired silver, blue and yellow colourway would be the catalyst for Nike as they set out to create a full fledged direction behind the Mercurial line. Keeping consistent with Nike's recent trends, the look of various models have been lifted and superimposed on the Dunk. Available in June with a suggested price of $125 USD.
