The not so patient wait for the Nike Mercurial Superfly "Rare Gold" is almost over for America. Dropping almost two months after sending Europe into a frenzy the limited edition CR7 boot will be released today (04/08).

Nike created 333 pairs of "Rare Gold" Mercurial boots to mark Cristiano Ronaldo's third Ballon d'Or success but they've refrained from releasing the figures for how many have been reserved for the US. When you consider the European batch sold out in a matter of seconds you can expect today's drop not to hang around for much longer.

Some description

So what time do they go on sale? That's the problem, Nike have yet to announce a specific time that the "Rare Gold" will go online. "Timeless" being the key hint in Nike Soccer's tweet yesterday. It could be a long day of refreshing if you're determined on getting hold of a pair.
