Cristiano Ronaldo soccer cell phone shorts legs polo sunglasses

Cristiano Ronaldo has got legs ... and he KNOWS how to use them! The soccer stud sported some pretty short shorts while strolling through NYC's Meatpacking District.

He's been vacationing in the Big Apple with his girlfriend, Russian model Irina Shayk ... enjoying New York's finest restaurants. Now that he's a new daddy, Cristiano has to soak in as much R&R as possible.

So we wonder if Irina is responsible for this outfit? With a body as flawless as his, we're not complaining!
