Posted by cady blair on July 23rd, 2018

Nike Air Max 97 CR7 Gold is a shoe which needs little introduction.Before he was the greatest football player on Earth and one of the most famous athletes ever, Cristiano Ronaldo was just another poor kid who loved playing football—no matter how messed up his sneakers were. Following up on the return of the silver Nike Air Max 97, Nike is planning to bring back the gold pair pictured above.Now the Swoosh is returning to that concept with this Metallic Gold offering that sports the colors of the Italian flag as a tribute to the country that kept this shoe rockin’ for years after the original release. If you’re hoping to secure this limited-edition release, be sure to sign up for release reminders using the bell icon above.As the story goes, young Ronaldo was limited to only two pairs of shoes: one for school, and one for play.The shoe celebrates Ronaldo’s continued greatness on the pitch and beyond through a golden finish across its leather and mesh upper.Nike's latest evolution of the Air Max 97 reworks the classic gold colorway with a patchwork look.Leather and mesh construction, wavy paneling on the upper, special CR7 branded heel pull tabs.Patched up and dipped in Gold, the new Air Max 97 CR7 takes inspiration from Ronaldo’s childhood footwear while celebrating his continued greatness on the pitch and beyond.We’ll send you an email alert as soon as these go live.

This is the second Nike Air Max 97 of the year to arrive as part of a collaborative release.Because he was always playing soccer and wearing out his shoe, his mother would have to sew patches on to make them last longer. Footballer Cristiano Ronald is the latest star to put his name to this timeless Nike silhouette.Black accents throughout, red, green and gold mini Swooshes, a white midsole featuring Air Max cushioning and a black outsole completes the style altogether.We still have over 2 months left in the year and Nike continues to release special colorways of the classic Air Max silhouette.
