Iconic footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has launched a new footwear collection; the latest addition to his growing brand, CR7, reports the London Evening Standard.
Hand-crafted by Portuguese specialists, Ronaldo expressed his passion behind the project.
He said: “I wanted to make sure every shoe was something that I loved and would be proud to wear. I worked really hard on this collection to make sure that the range is both stylish and versatile.”
"I think there’s a shoe in the range for every formal occasion to compliment every man. I'd say my favourite if I have to choose is the jazz dressy oxford brogue as it's very easy to wear. But then I love them all, they all have pride of place in my wardrobe."
The Real Madrid star launched his CR7 brand in 2006 with a single fashion boutique on the island of Madeira, Portugal. CR7 then expanded to Lisbon in 2008 before a partnership with both Danish company, JBS Texile Group and New York Fashion designer, Richard Chai in 2013 led to the release of his range of underwear. More recently, a collection of shirts were added to the brand.
Ronaldo insists he is always “very involved” in the design process himself.

This only adds to the great year the 30-year old winger is having, once again with more than a goal a game on average and sitting atop La Liga; despite slipping up on their last time out against Villarreal.
