Ronaldo will wear his golden shoes against Atletico Madrid on Thursday in the Copa del Rel. The dazzling cleats that will be on the spotlight at Santiago Bernabeu stadium even has a special name: Mercurial CR7 Rare Gold. Nike’s official website states: “Gold was selected as the main color on the boot because gold is earned. Ronaldo earned his golden award with tremendous play for club and country. As a tribute to Ronaldo’s work ethic, Nike added a special touch to the Mercurial CR7 Rare Gold. For the first time in Nike history, micro-diamonds have been applied by hand to the CR7 logo of the boot. As the diamonds are refined and the details sharpened, tiny pieces are cut away, leaving micro-diamonds behind as evidence of work in progress. The commitment to keep chipping away at something already impressive reminded Nike’s design team of Ronaldo’s work ethic. While many see Ronaldo as the best in the world, he sees room for improvement.”
