While his name might not ring bells here in the US the same way it does in the rest of the world, you oughta know who Christiano Ronaldo is. Nike has partnered up with Ronaldo on a new collection that runs from high end soccer gear to more street ready sneakers. Our pick from the pack is the Nike Street Gato CR7, a special reworking of the indoor soccer shoe that gets the full Ronaldo treatment. Inspired by his affinity for clean white designer sneakers, this pair goes with a set of milky tones on the upper along with some black and red hits to tie in with his Real Madrid uni. Get some up close shots of the sneaker after the jump and let us know if you’ve been feeling the Nike Street Gato releases in the comments.
I'm considering getting these for casual wear. As I get older, I recently have not been feeling as much of basketball and running sneakers (including retros). I want a alternative style that is simple yet distinctive, but not feeling any recent SB models at all due to their kiddie vibes. So these might be exactly what I need. Also, I don't watch or play soccer at all, but I do respect CR's dedication as a athlete.
