Nike brings on Monday the 23rd another Air Max 97, this time in collaboration with Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
The collaboration is inspired by the shoe that Ronaldo used to wear as a child to play soccer, which his mum had to repair every single day with patches, because they could not afford another shoe.
At the same time the shoes celebrates Ronaldo’s success in the field and in life, making it to the top but coming from a humble and poor community. The shoe that came out of these concept is a golden Air Max 97 that features an upper with different layers of patches: the “Golden Patchwork”.
It also features the CR7 Logo on the heel tab and dark green and red accents on the tip of the laces and on the inner mini swooshes. These two colors represent both teams that turned Ronaldo into the player that he is today: Sporting de Lisboa and Manchester United, and also the colors of his country, Portugal.
The Air Max 97 CR7 “Golden Patchwork” is going to drop tomorrow at 5 pm in the Nike SNEAKRS App.
