When Nike do just about anything, they tend not to do it by halves – so to mark the launch of a bold new boot, designed to the specification of one of their biggest athletes, it’s no surprise there’s a full compliment of apparel and accessories to round out the Nike CR7 Collection for this summer.
Carrying the same ethos as the Vapor IX (which Ronaldo gave a scoring debut to, this weekend) the full Nike CR7 Collection for Summer 13 takes inspiration from speed, with bold stripes, faded trails and contrasting colours the key callouts of the range.
As with Ronaldo’s new Mercurial, all items carry the Ronaldo ‘Love to Win, Hate to Lose’ motto, and the heart-with-cross logo somewhere on each garment, which are all created from premium materials.
For people who want to take that look to the pitch, the training top is definitely a must-have, with a mint green primary colour, cream stries fade in to the design towards the hem. Complimented with white shorts, this is training wear at it’s most summery.
For Nike’s previous CR ranges they’ve not been shy with creating some eye-catching outwear. After a shaky couple of starts with the all-over safari print windbreakers, the white button-down Saturday jacket features a drawstring hem is this collection’s key outerwear item.
Probably our favourite pieces of the Nike CR7 collection, the v-neck tees and polo carry much of the same design, with the heart-with-cross logo over the chest and chunky stripes that orbit the midriff.
Reportedly Cristiano’s favourite sneaker, it’s no surprise to see the tennis classic crop up as part of the collection. Created in summer colours, these kicks are the ideal compliment to any summer outfit.
The same vibrant color combination that classifies the CR Mercurial Vapor IX is at it’s most prevalent in the CR7 Mercurial Lite shin guards, CR7 Prestige ball and CR7 Cheyenne backpack, while additional training items appear in monochrome, to allow the colours of the rest of the collection maximum pop.
