Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo’s amazing new diamond-inspired Nike boots have been unveiled.
The Chapter 5: Cut to Brilliance boots, the fifth instalment of Mercurial Superfly V series, are even set to “sparkle under lights”, according to Nike.
Ronaldo, 32, signed a lifetime deal with the sportswear giants last year worth a reported £805million… and the latest boots designed for him look even more personalised than ever.
The diamond-style boots are set to mimic CR7’s “brilliance” on the pitch, while also echo the Portuguese star’s sentiments about joining Real Madrid back in 2009.
Nike compare the new boots to Ronaldo’s “diamond”-like career, saying: “His brilliance on the pitch has shone like a diamond and that became the inspiration for his Chapter 5: Cut to Brilliance boots.
“The boots feature a diamond-inspired graphic on a white base that sparkles under the lights.
“The upper includes multi-color knit details that mimic the multitude of colors that diamonds refract.
“On the medial side of the boot, a textured CR7 logo provides a 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.
“The high heel 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 his new team.”
Meanwhile, Ronaldo himself was thrilled with the boots, saying: “The details of the white boots — the color, the diamonds — they are beautiful; they are cool.
“I am sure, 100 percent, people are gonna like it.”
The Chapter 5: Cut to Brilliance boots will be available September 29.
