Earlier this year, we saw Nike give its Air Max the Mercurial R9 treatment in honor of Brazilian soccer legend, Ronaldo. To bring us even closer to the legend, the silhouette will soon be released in the player’s original colors. The upper will feature a combination of royal blue and metallic silver mesh throughout with accenting yellow contours and a yellow Swoosh.
