I discovered this video on youtube since I'm a subscriber of the Nike soccer account on youtube. It's a really cool video, it shows the process of how they make pro boots with the examples being Cristiano Ronaldo, Fabregas, and Rooney.

I love at the end when ronaldo says "these are my new booOOTS, I hope I score alot of goals".... it gave me a giggle :D

Thats a sweet video man, I wonder is that how all boots are made? (well mabye not so attention to detail specific but the general method) and its pretty cool how ronaldo scribble things on the vapor III... 1cm higher, to much pressure here

Ronaldo doesn't say that. It is Fabregas. Yeah thanks for posting the link to the video!

All boots are hand made, machines just help assembling them.
The only part that we don't get from them are the molded foots that they have from the player and the specifications that you saw on the mercurial (more support, 1cm higher on the heel part), we get them by the worldwide mold and we have no privileges about what/where we want help.
Besides its already worldwide known that nike has thousands of kids and women in china making this work for barely no salary, how do you think they can make boots every 2 months with the current state of economy, and by the law, you would get boots from 12 months to 12 months.
