What do you get the man who has everything for his birthday? Money-can’t-buy kicks, of course.
Cristiano Ronaldo turned 33 not too long ago, and along with an aqua-blue, ocean-themed cake, he showed off a gift from his sponsors, Nike.
Ronaldo is one of just three sporting superstars to have a lifetime endorsement deal with the sporting goods giant in a deal said to be worth US$1 billion (£715m).
So it wasn’t a huge stretch for the company to shell out a custom pair of trainers with a 24 karat gold ‘swoosh’.
The shoes were delivered in a special wooden box lined, of course, with more gold and the most decorated footballer appeared delighted.
Damn…who wouldn’t be delighted with a pair of gold swoosh trainers?
How much will they cost the regular punter to buy? Sadly for those brave enough to wear all white on their feet, they’ll never see the shelves of a store.
