To Honor Cristiano Ronaldo’s Humble Beginnings As A Football Player, The American Footwear Giant Unveils The Nike Air Force 1 CR 7 Scheduled To Launch Online On December 7.
To celebrate the legacy and honor the humble beginnings of the Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, Nike has reinterpreted its iconic Air Force 1 sneaker by incorporating golden details to the classic athletic shoe.
All such golden details nod to the superstar’s legacy and is a reminder of his toil in attaining that name – a young boy who started playing football with just two pair of shoes where one of the pairs kept for play were stitched by his mother each time he’d wear a new hole in his shoes.
The soon to be launched Air Force 1 CR 7 incorporates luxury golden patchwork in the form of Nike’s Swoosh Logo on either sides of the athletic shoes.
The iconic deubre tag in gold is attached to the bottom of the laces and has the inscription ‘AF-1′ with ’82’ engraved on it thus referring to the year in which the basketball sneaker turned street icon was introduced. The low-cut top renders a classic look to the sneaker and also creates a low-to-the-ground feel for the athlete or the individual adorning the shoe.
The golden Swoosh logo on either sides of the shoes give way to the Golden heel logos bearing the inscription ‘CR 7’ on the left shoe and the inscription ‘Nike Air’ on the right. The shoe’s tongue also bears the Nike Air Logo embroidered onto the golden leather patch.
The crisp details and classic silhouette of the iconic athletic sneaker, however, remains intact. The perforations on the shoe’s vamp provide ventilation during endurance, the Foam Sole includes encapsulated Air cushioning technology for improved performance and the collar incorporates padding for a snug and comfortable fit. The rubber soles feature pivot points in the forefoot and the heel to enable the athletes to change directions smoothly and the extreme durability of the rubber outsoles render excellent traction while the individual is at play.
Apart from all the aforementioned golden assents on the shoe, the inner sole also bears Nike Air inscription in gold. The Nike Air Force 1 CR 7 will be available online on UK website on December 7, 2017.
