Earlier this week, Sport-locker.net brought you the news of the launch of the Nike CR Mercurial Vapor Superfly III.
Today, we can exclusively reveal that, with the help of his fellow countryman Pepe, Cristiano Ronaldo will also have an off-pitch collection to his name!
The new CR7 collection blends the uncompromising attitude of the world’s most iconic player with an irreverent bold style that symbolises his approach to life.
Unified by a striking graphic logo of a heart (symbolizing a love of winning) slashed by an X (representing a hatred of losing), “Love to win, hate to lose” is a philosophy that informs and appears on every piece of the collection.
This mantra also reflects a collection that reveals two distinct sides of CR7 – one the relentless, focused footballer at the peak of his power and a more irreverent, playful and spontaneous style icon with a love of music that lives life full on.
Performance inspired pieces feature premium fabrics and rich detailing that incorporate a classic colour palette of blue, black and grey with a thoroughly modern twist of blue and pink detailing on key performance items marking CR7’s individuality.
Additional training items – a short sleeve top, Mercurial shin guards and CR Nike 5 Gato shoes, plus a backpack and Prestige ball—all feature this striking black, blue and pink fusion.
Bridging on and off-pitch, the blue, grey and black lifestyle collection elevates classic styles with modern tweaks and singular details that reflect Cristiano’s obsession with perfection.
The grey crew neck sweatshirt features suede elbow patches as well as a subtle embossed leather patch logo, while the clean, button-down Saturday Jacket (in off white and blue) boasts a similar logo, leather drawstrings, button closures and front pockets. The water-resistant fabric and zipper keep wet weather at bay.
The Track Jacket incorporates advanced front blocking, and each piece within the collection is precisely cut. The CR7 t-shirt confidently proclaims the “Love to win, hate to lose” attitude with a bold emblem, while the core t-shirt takes a more literal approach, writing out the mantra in ornate Portuguese calligraphy that speaks to Cristiano’s heritage.
A Wardour Max 1 chukka boot takes a running classic and adds an urban twist with fresh colors inspired by the Mercurial Vapor VIII boot.
The CR Collection will be available at retail from November 15th.
