Famed for his natty fashion sense, Cristiano Ronaldo is now opting to get statty instead.

The Real Madrid star is to don a pair of specially designed CR Mercurial IX to commemorate his achievements in 2012. The boots have seven numbers featured on to the side as well as featured within a CR7 graphic.

The numbers mark:

  • 1st Spanish league title
  • 9 goals scored for Portugal
  • 14 games played for the national team
  • 19 rival team scored against in a La Liga season (the first player to do so)
  • 27 years old in 2012
  • 55 matches played in all competitions for club
  • 60 goals scored in all competitions for club

Ronaldo said: “Last season was a very special one for me, helping my team and country achieve success.

“It’s great to celebrate these achievements and also have a great pair of Mercurial boots to recognize the moment. I’ll enjoy playing in them for sure.”

He’ll wear the boots in Sunday’s match against Real Sociedad. A limited run of 100 pairs of the boots will go on sale in February.
