Earlier today, Megan Rapinoe’s was rewarded with the women’s Ballon d’Or award after a year of massive achievement. And Nike is celebrating her accomplishments by presenting here with a special edition, commemorative boot made specially for her.
Using the Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 silo, Nike added a glorious Pink and Gold colorway that draws inspiration from Rapinoe’s signature hair color and the trophies she has won. Her first and last name appear prominently on the lateral sides of the boot, with “Just Do It’ on the medial side. The heel counter and sockliner carry the four stars Rapinoe and her American teammates proudly sport on their national team jerseys.
These are a one-of-a-kind boots for a one-of-a-kind player. And by that, I mean that this special edition boot will not be sold at retail, unfortunately. Thoughts on the design, and would you wear a colorway like this if they were released?
