Ronaldinho may not be able to replicate the form that once made him the most feared footballer on the planet, but he still knows how to be king of bling on the pitch.

Sporting the new Gold Dois football boots whilst playing for AC Milan in the World Football Challenge, the look brought back memories at Footy Boots HQ of Ronaldinho circa 2006.

The Ronaldinho DOIS (named DOIS as this is the second football boot in the range and DOIS means ‘two’ in Ronaldinho’s mother tongue, Portuguese), follows its predecessor the Tiempo Ronaldinho football boot, as the unique offering styled and assisted in design by Ronaldinho himself.

More Ronaldinho Gold
Ronaldinho has a soft spot for Gold football boots, during his heyday he had two special pairs of football boots containing eight ounces of 24-carat gold with real 24-carat gold applied to the Nike swoosh. The football boots featured a gold embroidered letter “R” and number 10, the shirt Ronaldinho was wearing for Barcelona. To top it off the heel of the football boot was embossed with five gold stars in honour of Brazil’s five World Cup wins. Nice!
Despite only being 29 years old, it seems his ‘off field antics’ may have taken to a toll on his ability. Which may be why Nike are likely to scrap the 10R line (Ronaldinho’s signature range) after this version of the Dois model.
