Ronaldo (his full name is Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima) is one of the best soccer players in history, who announced his official retirement in February 2011. Recently, Nike decided to celebrate his fame and glory with a pair of golden soccer boots. Packaged in a custom wooden box, the Golden Nike Mercurial Soccer Boots were created not only in honor of Ronaldo’s numerous wins, but also as a thank you gift from the sportswear and equipment manufacturer.
Thank you for what? Well, Ronaldo is one of the company’s brand ambassadors who have brought in pots of money for Nike. By using the image of a living legend, Nike managed to push itself into the soccer apparel and footwear market. Clearly, Ronaldo fully deserves the opulent gift!
