We wondered whether Ronaldo would wear his special edition CR110 boots or not, and we got an answer yesterday. He decided to break them out for his first training session back at Man Utd, showcasing them with mass media on-hand for his return.
The shattered multicolor print is a visual exploration of breaking records, partially inspired by a childhood anecdote from Ronaldo. One day, he was kicking the ball with a friend when he accidentally sent the ball straight through a neighbor’s window, breaking it to pieces.
The tape seam on the heel is inspired by Portugal’s national flag, highlighted by a rich burgundy on the lateral side, gold detailing and speckled laces. The tongue tab has a graphic interpretation of the date (June 6, 2004) and the minute (90″+3 stoppage time) when Ronaldo scored his first professional goal for Portugal.
The question now is how long will he wear them and will we see them in action vs Newcastle this weekend?
