Nike and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo have partnered to launch the new Chapter 5: Cut to Brilliance boots.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a goal in his very first game for Real Madrid back in 2009. He was a record signing, and over 80,000 fans showed up for his debut. Since then, Ronaldo became the fastest player 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 skills on the field became the inspiration for the 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-colour knit details that mimic the multitude of colours that diamonds refract. 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.
“The details of the white boots — the colour, the diamonds — they are beautiful; they are cool,” says Ronaldo. “I am sure, 100 percent, people are gonna like it.”
The Nike x Christiano Ronaldo Chapter 5: Cut to Brilliance boots are available now from Nike.com and select footwear outlets. Just last week, Nike announced the return of its iconic Air Force 1 boot for its 35th anniversary.
