Yesterday, we announced the new signature boot for Cristiano Ronaldo, the Mercurial Vapor VIII CR. Constructed around a contoured last that mirrors the shape of the foot with a Teijin® Microfiber upper has a sleek close fit, the soccer boot is the next evolution in the Nike Soccer performance line. However in addition to the performance aspects, Nike has update the theme of the boot to match CR’s signature style.
Launched today, Nike offers the Cristiano Ronaldo Signature Collection. Blending his on and off the pitch style, the collection is both bold and understated with a contemporary feel. The center piece of the collection revolves around a new graphic logo of a heart. The heart represents his love of the game, while the slash through the heart represents his hate for losing; ”Love to win, hate to lose” is a philosophy that informs and appears on every piece of the collection.
From performance pieces to a lifestyle collection, the brand has captured the irreverent, bold style that symbolizes the world’s most iconic soccer player. With classic style, modern tweaks, premium fabrics, rich detailing, and precise detailed cuts, the CR Collection will be available at select retailers starting November 15. In the meantime, check out some images of the collection below as well as a brief interview with Andy Caine, Nike Global Football Creative Director.
