The saga of Cristiano Ronaldo's illustrious career continues with the release of Nike's fourth boot in the series. Chapter 4 continues where the previous chapter left off with Ronaldo's transfer to legendary club, Manchester United, as a talented 18-year-old eager to begin his journey to becoming one of the world's greatest players. Upon arrival, Sir Alex Ferguson bestowed the number 7 on his newest recruit, a jersey worn by Manchester United legends like David Beckham, George Best and Eric Cantona.
Over the next five years, Ronaldo rose to the occasion and then some, leaving the club after being crowned the world's best player in 2008 and winning three consecutive Premier League Titles and a Champions League title. His success under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed his destiny amongst the legends of football. The "Forged For Greatness" Mercurial CR7 Superfly takes design cues from the smoldering hot irons used when forging metal. A vibrant orange and red soleplate transforms into a metallic upper that changes color from blue to silver. The CR7 logo features a prominent 7 to signify this chapter as the start of Ronaldo's name becoming synonymous with the lucky number.
The CR7 "Forged For Greatness" Collection will be available April 10th in adult and youth sizes.
