Arrived in a wooden box, was a pair of all-white Nike 'Swoosh' which are worth $70 (Rs. 5,000). But on taking a closer look, the true beauty of the shoes was visible. The Nike logo stitched at the sides of the shoes and at the back along with the tip of the shoelaces were all made out of pure 24-carat gold. The interior of the box was also decorated with gold.4. Made A Wax Statue Of Himself To Keep At Home
When in 2013, the Museum of Wax, Madrid unveiled a waxwork of the Portuguese superstar, Ronaldo was absolutely stunned by the detailing and perfection with which it was made. As a result, he contacted the original artist Michael Wade and paid him $31,000 (Rs. 22 Lakh) to make a replica which he could keep in his house.
Ronaldo has also hired a hairstylist who visits the statue in Madrid every month to fix the statue's hair and match it to that of Ronaldo's freshest look. A bit over the top? So what?5. Opened A Museum For Himself

On 21st December 2014, a bronze statue of Cristiano doing his iconic pose was revealed at the venue under which says 'The Best Player In The World - Cristiano Ronaldo'.
