Only the best for Nike’s prime athlete in the world – Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo received a 24K gold plated Nike Air Force 1s for his birthday earlier this month. The 33-year-old received AF1 lows with signature Nike swooshes draped in 24k gold from the company he has represented since 2003.
Two years ago Ronaldo signed a lifetime $1 billion deal with the sports-clothing giant and seeing how this photo has over 5 million likes it’s easy to understand while Nike chose to shower the Portuguese with money.
This isn’t the first time this winter that CR7 received something golden as he was awarded Ballon d’Or, or the Golden Ball, in December as the best male soccer player in the world, second time in a row. Making it with five wins total.
