The NIKE AIR MAX 97 CR7 honours Cristiano Ronaldo’s rise to the top with this rags to riches edition of the iconic waved silhouette…
Honouring one of Portugal’s footballing greats, Nike unveils a celebration of Ronaldo’s athletic prowess with this stunning iteration of the AM97. Still sitting pretty in its twentieth anniversary year, the iconic silhouette designed by Christian Tresser returns with this gold-flecked iteration, which acts as a testament to Ronaldo’s epic rags to riches journey. Only able to afford two pairs of shoes when he was growing up, the aspiring footballer was given a pair for school and a pair for the pitch, which his mother patched up when they got threadbare. This forthcoming signature model mimics this phase in his life, whilst also embodying elements of his background – including the shade of his favourite gold chain to the heel pull and further green and red detailing across the Swoosh, harking back to his native country’s flag.
The NIKE AIR MAX 97 CR7 is due to release on MONDAY 23 OCTOBER. Until then, get your fix of the latest footwear from NIKE by following the banner below.
