Nike pays homage to Cristiano Ronaldo with a new edition of the Air Max 97 CR7, featuring a patchwork red leather build inspired by the renowned footballer's childhood. As a boy, Cristiano maintained his school shoes, but he would wear down his play shoes over countless hours on the pitch, consequently requiring his mother to repair the holes with sewn on patches. That aesthetic serves as the basis for this upcoming Air Max 97 CR7 "Portugal Patchwork," set to drop through the Nike SNKRS app on April 24. Scroll through the gallery below for detailed looks.
