Cristiano Ronaldo's New Nike Air Max 97s Are Perfectly Patchy
We’ve seen the Air Max 97 ‘Patchwork’ dipped in gold, but this follow-up comes dressed in dark red that pays homage to CR7's Portuguese heritage.
The unique patchwork detailing on the shoe is a tribute to Ronaldo’s mother, who frequently sewed patches on his childhood football boots to keep them from falling apart. The rest of the aesthetic isn’t as dishevelled, with Air Max ‘CR7’ motifs placed on the heel strap, and green and yellow lace aglets and Swooshes propping up the Portuguese theme.
The Nike Air Max 97 CR7 ‘Portugal Patchwork’ will be dropping in limited numbers at select Nike retailers on April 24 with a RRP of $170 USD.
