New Boots for Drog & Ron

Tonight, in the much-awaited UEFA Champions League Final between favourites Manchester United and Russian-owned Chelsea, Ronaldo and Drogba will be wearing new boots designed by Nike from the range ‘Mercurial’. The new boot, called Nike Mercurial SL, shown below in the picture, has a pink Swoosh, and weighs just 180 grams.

It is highly responsive, flexible, but strong nevertheless. It delivers maximum performance for the football player that wears them, and has a competitive advantage over other football boots.

The players’ comments were:

“The new Mercurial SL defines the next level of football boots - it is like nothing I have ever seen before and I’m very excited to be one of the first players to wear this boot in the Champions League Final.” - Didier Drogba (Chelski)

“Speed and acceleration are essential to my game; one second can be the difference between winning or losing the Champions League Final. This Mercurial SL boot is designed to provide the next level of speed.” - Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United, Favourite for World’s Best Player of the Year)
