In 2012, the singular style of Cristiano Ronaldo inspired an Air Force 1 — the CR7. Three and a half years later, Nike Sportswear uses that original shoe and Ronaldo’s continued football flair to refashion a follow-up: the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra FC.
Putting a more luxe spin on that original Uptown, the AF1 Ultra adds premium, buttery blue leather onto the iconic silhouette. Vac-Tech heat-molded construction delivers a rolled seam look, a move that’s more dress-shoe than sneaker, and the signature lighter, cushier Ultra sole contrasts in solid-white.
No word yet on whether the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra FC will wash up stateside, but the shoe’s set to hit UK accounts June 2. Stay tuned.
