Cristiano Ronaldo will lace up a "new" set of special boots when Real Madrid face Barcelona in this weekend's El Clasico

Ronaldo's Nike throwbacks—the Nike Mercurial Fast Forward 2010—will pay homage to the boots Ronaldo wore in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. At the time, the boot was a groundbreaking development because of the Flywire technology and the carbon-fibre plate that reduced the boot's weight by five percent.

The new boot features even more modern boot technology, but the colours and visuals look back to the 2010 edition.
