Portuguese soccer sensation Cristiano Ronaldo is getting new footwear soon, but it’s not what you may be envisioning.

Shifting gears from Ronaldo’s Mercurial cleats worn on the pitch, Nike has readied a new Air Force 1 Ultra F.C. colorway for the Real Madrid standout.

This version features a solid black upper with a rolled-seam construction. A metallic silver overlay is found at the heel, while the white-on-white midsole and outsole includes a small pop of salmon at the rear. The player’s signature CR7 branding appears on the insole.

For those keeping score, this isn’t the first time Nike has delivered a Ronaldo-inspired take on the classic Air Force 1 sneaker. In June 2016, the brand released a blue version, called Hyper Cobalt, of the Air Force 1 Ultra F.C.

There is currently no confirmed release date for the new pair, however Nike’s official product images have been uploaded to its website, which is often an indication that a launch is happening soon.
