Everyone loves Ronaldo! No, we're not talking Ronaldo, the legendary Brazilian striker, or Ronaldinho, both beloved sensations on the global stage of soccer — we're talking about Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese star who has continued the honored position of wearing Nike's foremost soccer cleat line, the Mercurial.
Sneaker Report had shared Ronaldo's special summer Nike collection for 2013 (as well as the winter collection for 2012), but now the Swoosh has debuted yet another collection that caters to the young star — the Nike CR7 Collection, an apparel set that most importantly includes the Nike Mercurial IX CR7.
The Mercurial IX CR7 makes lightweight comfort its foremost performance focus, but it actually more highlighted by its aesthetic appeal, particularly to honor Ronaldo the player. A starry night theme is the vehicle by which to pay homage to Ronaldo with the Star Vela Supernova. The Supernova marks seven stars that signify Ronaldo's own superstar status in the world, but also serves as a tribute to his jersey number.
The rest of the CR7 Collection is for lifestyle purposes, all of which make for a great complement to Ronaldo's own fashion and style sense. There's a Leather Track Jacket, a Saturday Jacket, a Reversible Jacket, and a brief array of tees that will make for a good variety of looks going to and fro the field — but more importantly, there's the shoes.
