Nike Launch The Air Force 1 CR7 Golden Patchwork

After revealing the signature sneaker in December 2017 to mark Cristiano Ronaldo winning his fifth Ballon d'Or, Nike are set to finally drop the limited-edition Air Force 1 CR7 Golden Patchwork today as it lands in retailers.

Cristiano Ronaldo's signature Nike lifestyle collection is carried into new ground as the Swoosh serve up sneaker with a distinguished finish all-over. The latest addition to football's most decorated signature series continues CR7's venture into the premium lifestyle market, a move that no other player has yet to achieve with such hype, and such style.


Quite clearly CR7 is still performing at the top of the game, but with time no longer on his side Nike could be beginning to install the Real Madrid man as a key lifestyle component of their football collection as he approaches the off-pitch scene. If that is the plan, then it's one they're executing perfectly right now.

As for the sneakers themselves, the Air Force 1 CR7 Golden Patchwork carry the message of Cristiano Ronaldo's childhood. As a young boy, Ronaldo was limited to just two pairs of shoes – one for playing football in, and one for wearing to school.

As the story goes, his school shoes were well kept, but his football shoes always ended up with holes due to the endless amount of time he spent playing the game. Each time he'd get a new hole in his shoes, his mother would patch them up. That explains the patterned Swoosh. The gold presumably because he's sh*t-hot at football.

The limited edition Nike Air Force 1 CR7 Golden Patchwork is built with a white leather lining that allows the textured golden leather Swoosh to take centre stage. The CR7 and Nike Air logos are embroidered onto the golden heel tabs, and CR7's signature is hidden on the inside of the shoe. Dropping today. The race is on...
