Mbappé gets a special edition “Pink” Mercurial Superfly
When the Champions League final kicks off tomorrow, Kylian Mbappé will be wearing a very unique, signature pair of Nike Mercurial Superfly.
We are talking about an unmissable pop of pink on the pitch, Nike Mercurial Superfly Mbappé Rosa brings forth a rebirth of the famous 2008 Nike Mercurial Vapor Rosa. It is a release that takes lessons from the speed-focused assets featured on the original boot, while modernizing the design aesthetic. A lightning bolt Swoosh leading to the toe, chrome plate and finishes in the skin of the upper, along with KM and Mercurial logos, serve as stylish updates to the silhouette.
*UPDATE: Special edition pairs are now available at soccer.com.
The boot reminds Mbappé of life lessons he learned from his mother about the importance of hard work and determination.
He recalls: “When I was a young boy around 10 years old I saw these incredible pink boots being worn by some of my favorite players in the world. I wanted those boots so badly, I begged my parents to get some and they told me that if I worked really hard and did well at school for long enough I could get these beautiful boots. I listened to my parents and worked so hard that in the end they had to get them for me. I was so happy! Now, I am so pleased that Nike have created my second product collection with these special boots for the biggest club match of my career! What a dream to wear them. They are the new versions of the pink boots I loved when I was a young boy and this is so special for me to work to achieve my dreams in these boots.”
And for fans wondering if they will have the chance to own a pair, there is good news! Nike is releasing them to retail, with the current date set as August 31st, you will find them right now at soccer.com.
