Cut To Brilliance: The Ronaldo Story Reaches Chapter 5
NIKE unleashed the newest addition to their Cristiano Ronaldo signature soccer cleats. The Cut to Brilliance collection represents chapter five in the career of Ronaldo. As the legacy of CR7 continues, this diamond-inspired design represents Ronaldo’s transfer to Real Madrid.
In the summer of 2009, Ronaldo departed Manchester United for Real Madrid. At the time it was the largest transfer ever for a player in world soccer. Ronaldo commanded 80 million British pounds, which at the time equaled roughly $132 million in American currency. He then boldly announced his presence with a goal in his first game at Madrid. From there he became the fastest player to score 50, 150, 200 and 250 goals in La Liga. Ronaldo also became the first player to score against every team in La Liga in a single season.
With a shining performance like that in Spain, only a design inspired by diamonds could do justice to this chapter in Ronaldo’s career. The cleats feature a white/light blue base that sparkles under the lights. A multi-color knit design on the upper mimics the brilliant colors that a diamond refracts.
The inside of these boots features the signature CR7 logo with a pattern and feel that represents the diamond theme. As always, the signature Ronaldo shoe is the Mercurial model. NIKE Mercurial soccer cleats are built for explosive speed which has been the trademark of Ronaldo’s style of play.
Finally, hear Cristiano Ronaldo himself describe the feeling he had moving to Madrid an the inspiration behind these cleats.
