Two of the world’s biggest athletes go head-to-head in a battle of explosive speed. On the tennis court, Rafael Nadal‘s supremacy is almost unrivalled. However, against Cristiano Ronaldo and the new Mercurial Vapor VIII soccer cleats/boots, he faces a challenge like never before.

In the commercial below, Ronaldo is on court with Nadal, rallying with him but using his feet & body as he would in a soccer game as opposed to using a racket. Well, and using his Mercurial Vapor VIII shoes, which is the focus of the whole commercial.

Cristiano Ronaldo has always worn the Mercurial and he give his seal of approval on the latest version. “This boot is perfect for me. I can get an edge on defenders, knowing that the boot will give me the speed and traction I need without compromising support, control or, of course, style.” Check out the commercial below.
