On August 6th, 2003, at the age of 18, Cristiano Ronaldo played for his Lisbon club for the last time, as the opposing squad he faced that day was determined not to leave town without him. His career – and arguably football – would never be the same. That momentous match is the inspiration behind the CR7 Chapter 3 boots.
Less than a week later, the news broke that he had signed with the red side of Manchester for a staggering £12.24 million, making him at the time, the most expensive teenager in English football history. “This game changed my career forever. Just 10 days after the match, I was already playing in England with my new team, embracing new challenges”
The fateful game that propelled his career to the next level is the inspiration behind the design of the CR7 Chapter 3: Discovery. The colors of the boots are inspired by the team he was playing for, amplified in a modern way. The lateral side features silver dot graphics, as well as a subtle reflective wave design as a nod to the Mercurial Vapor I boots he wore in 2003. The numbers 06, 08 and 03 (day, month, year) etched on the heel counter commemorate the date of his discovery, while a sparkling CR7 logo highlights the shining performance he delivered.
