UCONN women’s head basketball coach, Geno Auriemma, says he doesn’t want to recruit players who love to win; rather players who hate to lose. The philosophy seems to have worked out pretty well for him. That same philosophy is carried by the great Christiano Ronaldo, and is displayed on the Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII CR by a heart shape overlayed by an “X”. The track-inspired boot is constructed to hug the foot to enhance speed while on the pitch. The all black boot features hints of blue and pink to match Ronaldo’s clothing line, and will be available on December 31. Head over to Nike Inc. to find out more about the Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII CR.
