Cristiano Ronaldo has switched straight into his latest signature Nike CR7 Mercurial Campeões design as Portugal train ahead of the 2017 Confederations Cup this summer. Launched to celebrate his successes with club and country, the Campeões edition will be worn by the Real Madrid man throughout the tournament.
Yeah, this is what you get when you win the European Championship, La Liga and Champions League in the same year. The highest Swoosh recognition and a bespoke trophy to be carried with him onto the pitch to serve as a reminder for his opposition and his teammates that the man plays on a different level. Ronaldo laced up in the design as he trained ahead of Portugal setting off for Russia to play their opening game against Mexico on Sunday.
The latest addition to Cristiano Ronaldo's signature series won't be released at retail by Nike, leaving Ronaldo himself as the only person to get his hands on them; a personal reward as exclusive as they come. The Nike CR7 Mercurial Campeões boots take inspiration from the country which Ronaldo captains and will complement the Portugal home strip. An all red upper with golden swooshes pay tribute to an impeccable season and a golden soleplate brings further fire.
Throwing some extra personal touches at the boot, Nike incorporate the 'CR7' logo in gold and a unique heel counter that hosts the Portugal badge on a split green and red backdrop. A strong sense of added pride for Ronaldo as he goes in search of more international glory at the Confederations Cup in Russia – A country he'll be looking to revisit next summer to win that one trophy that has avoided him throughout his illustrious career. That really would be the golden icing on the golden cake.
