CR7′s Island-inspired Boots
Nike so loved Cristiano Ronaldo, that they gave his home island their own boots.
That’s right folks! In a tribute to the Ballon d’Or winner, the new CR7 ‘Savage Beauty Pack’ draws its ‘volcanic’ inspiration from Ronaldo’s birthplace, on the island of Maderia off the coast of Portugal.
The lava-inspired print on Savage Beauty is one of the most intricate Nike has ever produced on a pair of boots. A collaboration between Nike’s World Headquarters and its expert artisans in Montebelluna, Italy, the vibrant, six-color graphic flows from toe to heel to accentuate Ronaldo’s speed. Supplementary color on the medial side adds extra flash while a new, smaller CR7 logo appears on the lateral side of the heel and an iridescent white Swoosh complements the design.
We think these are one of the most ascetically pleasing CR7 releases from Nike to date. With the option of a superfly sock or standard open-heel, it’s hard to go wrong with these bad boys!
A pair will likely cost you over $200 and will be available in early November.
