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.

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