Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo asides being a great footballer, is known for glaring crave for expensive material possession and his good looks in and off the pitch.
Although he makes his exceptions sometimes, the Portuguese does not like like wearing black boots while playing football because of his weird superstitions. This was revealed by Max Blau, a vice chairman of sportswear company Nike during the recent product launch of Ronaldo’s new limited-edition gold and white Nike boots.
According to Blau
"Every player has their favorite color, and it’s been scientifically proven that the color of the boots activates chemicals in the player’s mind.
"When you feel better, you play better. The main reason of the color is to give confidence.
"For example, Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t like to wear black boots because he says black looks slow and he wants to feel fast.
"The same individual under the same conditions will have a better performance if he wears a better product."
