Designed to pay tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo's time at Manchester United. Ronaldo arrived in England a teenager, small and timid. He expected to receive number 28, his number at Sporting Lisbon. Instead, Sir Alex Ferguson gave him the legendary number 7, a number worn by some of the greats in Red Devils history. Through many hours and games, Cristiano Ronaldo developed from CR into CR7, one of the greatest players we have ever seen in the game.
The colorway is inspired by the steel industry in Manchester, representing how Cristiano was "Forged for Greatness." On the heel you have his previous club number, 28, while his new number at United, 7, is more visible.
Grab a pair today, lace them up, and be Forged for Greatness just like CR7.
A redesigned Flyknit upper molds to the foot for that close, sock-like fit you crave while a soft Dynamic Fit Collar hugs the ankle and keeps you locked in. New speed ribs wrap your foot to keep you planted and stable while providing a control surface all over the upper. By varying the size of the ribs, Nike was able to create larger surfaces on certain areas of the upper to help you get more control on shots and passes.
An entirely redesigned outsole forms to your foot, giving you a more comfortable ride and reducing the weight by over 40%.
The outsole is specially designed for speed. With new chevron bladed studs, you now get better traction for straight line, explosive speed.
