A leather like finish on the upper – preferred by the athlete, and Nike’s innovative All Conditions Control (ACC) technology further aids his performance; the special treatment now used on all Nike boots ensures a consistent touch whether playing in wet or dry conditions weather.

Horizontal black and neon yellow lines link the shoe to the collection’s overarching inspiration of speed. The “love to win, hate to lose” logo on the heel is a nod to Ronaldo’s inspiration as he explodes past how opponents on his way towards goal. 


Like all great athletes, Cristiano Ronaldo loves to win and hates to lose. And when he wins, he prefers to do it at speed – explosive speed. Not only is pace one of the hallmarks of Cristiano’s game, it also defines the bold, distinctive spirit of the new CR7 Collection.

Design inspiration comes from Cristiano’s love for all things fast. The collection also includes performance training items and a variety of polos and tees – each element is aesthetically inspired by velocity in sport.


This same vibrant colour combination classifies the CR7 Mercurial Lite shin guards, CR7 Prestige ball and CR7 Cheyenne backpack, while additional training items appear in monochrome.


The speed inspiration is also clear to see in the lifestyle items in the collection, particularly with the CR7 Pique Polo and CR7 V-neck T-shirt. There it is represented in the flashes of green, blue, red and white that run across the body.
