Cristiano Ronaldo has never been one to fade quietly into the background, and with new monogrammed, sparkling boots, he is making sure he remains front and centre.
Nike unveiled the boots, named the ‘CR7 series – Chapter 5: Cut To Brilliance’, with a video of the Real Madrid and Portugal forward in action.
Among the features included in the new designs are diamond-like designs over the white boots, which will sparkle when playing under lights.
The top of the boots include multiple colours knitted into the fabric, as well as the CR7 logo – Ronaldo’s brand name – while the heel, amid more diamond-esque designs, has the date of Ronaldo’s Madrid debut emblazoned.
Also included are the words ‘El Sueño Del Niño’ – Portuguese for ‘the dream of the child’ – which were apparently the words Ronaldo told Nike’s design team when asked to describe how he felt about joining Real.
Ronaldo joined Real in 2009 for a then world record £80million fee. He has since broken a series of records, becoming the fastest player to score 50, 100, 150, 200 and 250 league goals, as well as being the first to score against every team in La Liga in one season.
The player himself said: ‘The details of the white boots – the colour, the diamonds – they are beautiful; they are cool. I am sure, 100 percent, people are gonna like it.
‘The records and numbers, they are a part of my job. I am blessed to have had great moments every year.’
For those who want to emulate Ronaldo – and bring the sparkly boots to the Sunday league pitches of Britain, if they dare the boots go on sale on September 29.
