Football News > Ronaldo back in Safari's as Madrid stutter in Lyon


In a night where Lyon battled to save their seven match unbeaten run against Real Madrid, there was an unexpected boot spot on show. Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been wearing the new Windchill Nike Superfly II football boots since their release back in January, was spotted wearing his previous signature boots; the Nike Safari Superfly's.

There are suggestions that Nike have asked the Real Madrid striker to wear his Safari Superfly's during Champions League games and the Windchill's in La Liga in an attempt to maximise exposure for both boots.

There were some grumbles among boots fans when CR7 switched to the new Windchill Superfly II football boots so soon after the release of his bespoke Safari's. Now it seems Ronaldo's Safari's might be back in the limelight of the Champions League.

It was a tight match brought to life by the substitution of Karim Benzema who came on for Emmanuel Adebayor (who was back wearing the black/electricity adiZero's). The former Lyon striker scored with his first touch that looked to give Real the edge ahead of the return leg. But with seven minutes from time Bafetimbi Gomis made sure Lyon's unbeaten run against the Spanish giants continued! 

Real Madrid have been knocked out at this stage of the competition in each of the last six seasons, including at the hands of Lyon last year. With Benzema's crucial away goal, Madrid are still firmly on course to make the quarter finals but Lyon will now travel to the Santiago Bernabéu hopeful of an upset. 

So for all the Superfly and Ronaldo fans out there, what football boots would you rather see CR7 in?

Shut the hell up, Ibra-kadabra, if u don't like Madrid why do you read this article

To all Barca fans: with all the respect, if u ar against Madrid, please don't write bad things about them!!

But still I will pray that Madrid will win from Lyon and win the CL!

No matter, Real will go trough. Mourinho does his job as he did in Inter they didn't play showy or interesting football but they will get through. Even with 0-0 at Bernabeu will get them to the next opponent

Before I was forced into retirement with my hand injury, I used the Black/Yellow Adizero Leather which for me, were the best boots I had ever had (even though they were only required for the last 8 games of my career)

I had never even considered using and of the Vapor range since the shape changed and that awful lace cover was introduced. I could be very wrong as I haven't tried them but I imagine that they are absolutely terrible. Everything about them suggests that they wouldn't be a great performer and some of the designs/colourways are absolutely hideous.

I've just put a cheeky £50.00 on Real to win 3-1 ;)

i think real madrid could actually do it and win 3-1 against lyon becus jose is a world class manager

Will OL wear their awesome 2010-2011 away jerseys at Bernabeu?  That + Pantofola d'Oro Lazzarini in classic red would blow orange, pink, green and speckled boots away!

Real may win, but I can guarantee one thing: Ronaldo ain't scoring (even if he was wearing a pair of Pantofola d'Oro Lazzarini in "Hot Pink")!  Guy is about as tough as a wet paper bag on the pitch and he always comes up short when it counts.  Benzema and Ozil to score and maybe Di Maria. . .  And then again. . . Maybe none at all and another CHOKE!!! for Madrid.
