Portuguese soccer sensation Cristiano Ronaldo has inspired a new colorway of Nike’s Train Ultrafast Flyknit training sneaker.
Ahead of the Train Ultrafast Flyknit’s launch in June, Nike explained how the sneaker was inspired by Ronaldo’s explosive, speedy style of play. Now we’re seeing this inspiration materialize in the form of a new CR7-branded colorway.
This “Cool Grey/Wolf Grey/Clear Jade/Black” style of the Nike Train Ultrafast Flyknit boasts a knitted upper that blends various shades of gray with accents of bright neon green.
One of the most interesting features of the Train Ultrafast Flyknit is its unique chainlink Flywire pattern, which is intended to support the foot during lateral movement.
While this trainer’s Flyknit and Flywire upper is the standout technology, its low-profile foam midsole is equipped with a hidden carbon fiber plate that helps with forward propulsion. The outsole is built with rubber pods for traction and a flat heel to provide stability in the weight room.
This special-edition version of the Nike Train Ultrafast Flyknit sees an increase from its normal retail price of $150 to $200. It’s available now from Nike while supplies last.
