In this statement praising the forward on their official website, Nike stated: “Gold was selected as the main color on the boot because gold is earned. Ronaldo earned his golden award with tremendous play for club and country”.

“The micro-diamonds are remnants from larger stones that are painstakingly perfected by craftsmen. As the diamonds are refined and the details sharpened, tiny pieces are cut away, leaving micro-diamonds behind as evidence of work in progress. The commitment to keep chipping away at something already impressive reminded Nike’s design team of Ronaldo’s work ethic. While many see Ronaldo as the best in the world, he sees room for improvement.”
