Nike presents the new CR7 Cristiano Ronaldo signature collection for the holiday 2012 season, featuring a series of on- and off-pitch items representing Cristiano Ronaldo's two distinct sides -- a focused, world-class footballer and a spontaneous style icon.

The CR7 performance-inspired items are highlighted by the Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII CR football boot and a special CR7 Nike5 Gato shoe. The lifestyle-inspired side of the collection features several modern apparel items, including jackets, sweatshirts and a special Wardour Max 1 chukka boot. All of the items in the new CR7 collection feature a special graphic logo with a heart (representing the love of winning) slashed through by an X (representing a hatred for losing).

The new Nike CR7 Cristiano Ronaldo Signature Collection releases at select Nike accounts on November 15.
