The colour also relates to more than the final that they won, it also relates to the naval history of Portugal. Portugal has always been a country who was driven på sea exploration, and the colour also resembles the oceans that the former explorers crossed to find new lands and cultures. Nike has also added some few designs elements to keep the connection between sea exploration, captains and Portugal. Nike has incorporated a captain’s “C” in the armillary sphere, which also is used in the Portugal team crest. Furthermore, Nike has also made a gesture to the sea exploration, by giving the swoosh a explorative design, and you can really sense that sea exploration is the core inspiration of the boot.
On the back of the heel you can spot three colours, that also will go through the Portugal national team kits. The colours tributes both the home and away kit, while the text and crest is made in gold. This is the same colour which also will be used on the font of the printing of the home kit.
To incorporate the away kit into boot, besides using the old away kit colour, Nike has also placed gold cross patterns on the underfoot of the boots. These patterns are the same as the ones featured on the 2018 Portugal away kit but in a different colour.
The boot is in general an astonishing way to celebrate the history that Ronaldo has made with Portugal. You can also almost feel the passion that Ronaldo has for his country and playing national games.
“When you play for your country you want to win, you want to defend your colors”
With these words being said, you can almost say the Ronaldo is ready for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and for another trophy to his collection. And we can’t wait to see him wearing his new boots in the brand new Portugal away kit this summer!
