Nike Drop Cristiano Ronaldo Chapter 5 Football Boots
With the season in full swing, it’s about time we got a shiny new pair of football boots to pine over. And right on cue, Nike have just dropped their new CR7 boot for Cristiano Ronaldo. The fifth instalment in their partnership, the Chapter 5 boot is dubbed ‘Cut to Brilliance’ and it features a diamond-inspired graphic and multi-colour knit details.
Having been at Real Madrid since 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo became the fastest to score league goals at every imaginable milestone: 50, 150, 200, 250 and counting. He also holds distinction as the first player to score against every team in La Liga in one season. His brilliance on the pitch has ‘shone like a diamond’ and that became the inspiration for the Nike Chapter 5: Cut to Brilliance boots.
The CR7 Chapter 5 football boots are dominated by striking diamond-inspired graphics which literally sparkles when put under lights. Just to emphasise the bling Ronaldo is so synonymous with, the white Flyknit upper also includes multi-colour knit details that mimic the multitude of colours that diamonds refract.
Like all of Nike’s Ronaldo boots, a textured CR7 logo on the medial side of the boot provides another tactile representation of the diamond graphic, while the heel counter provides a top-down view of a brilliant-cut diamond accompanied by the date of Ronaldo’s Madrid debut.
There’s also some detail on the high heel which reads ‘El Sueño Del Niño’ (the dream of the child) as these were the words Ronaldo shared with Nike’s design team to describe how he felt about joining Madrid.
The Nike CR7 Chapter 5: Cut to Brilliance football boots are set to go on sale on Friday 29th September over at the Nike Website.
