The Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII CR Men’s Firm-Ground Soccer Cleat is a shoe built specifically for you guys who can actually get out there for 90 minutes and maintain the frantic pace that soccer requires. For the club-footed has-beens or never-were types, you’d better keep looking. While these beasts may give you the Cristiano Ronaldo look, they will not give you his abilities.

Considering these are 25 percent lighter than the previous version, however, you should be zooming around the pitch with ease. Accuracy, goalkeeping, defensive ability, and stamina are a completely different story, though. For that it’s best to hunt down Ronaldo himself for some tips. Or just stay home and watch the match on ESPN. Yeah, we like that idea much better. Cool shoes, though.
