With Portugal’s win at EURO 2016, the team qualified to compete at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia from June 17 to July 2, the 10th iteration of the quadrennial international men’s soccer tournament. All eyes will be on Ronaldo, Portugal’s team captain, as he looks to add another title to his list of awards and championships. And with Nike’s bright red, Portuguese-inspired custom kicks, full attention will also be given to Ronaldo’s footwear.

While Ronaldo’s popularity could easily cement the shoes as a best-seller, the boots are not available at retail. According to Nike, “they were created specifically for the world’s best player.”
