Notes - Mid-tier Nike Mercurial Talaria boots based off the iconic Nike Mercurial Vapor II, released in 2004. The Talaria is designed in a similar style to the boot famously used by Ronaldo during his time with Real Madrid but with altered performance characteristics to make this a more affordable alternative. The upper is made with a padded synthetic and features a small fold-over tongue with R9 print which is also used on the Vapor II. The rear supports an external heel counter that offers additional protection and support, while the outsole is crafted from all rubber with several moulded studs for high levels of traction on hard ground surfaces. This model is made with the same silver and black colourway used by Ronaldo during the 2003/04 season as the Brazilian finished Real Madrid's top scorer with 31 goals in all competitions.
