Mbappe’s Nike History

The new Mercurial worn by Mbappe is a lightweight soccer cleat option designed for attacking players who look to score and assist throughout the season. It has a synthetic Vaporposite+ upper that wraps around the foot for a second-skin fit and 3/4 length Zoom airbag plate for a comfortable bouncy step. Mbappe, who can be considered to be the new face of the Mercurial, received his first signature Mercurial football boots at the end of 2019 with the KM x Bondy Mercurial Superfly 7. Nike followed those up with his 2nd signature edition, a pair of pink Mercurial Superfly Rosa, that he wore in the 2020 Champions League final. His third, the Mbappe Flames, came in the first quarter of the 2021/22 season and internalised his fiery passion for the sport. The Mbappe purple was his 2022 signature to open up the said football year.

Mbappe’s boot history had seen him only wear Nike. In his earliest years, Kylian wore Nike’s Mercurial before switching to the Hypervenom while at AS Monaco. Upon Nike’s persuasion, he switched back to the Mercurial, subsequently becoming one of the Nike’s biggest players. He went on to get his own signature boots after one-off specials like the Virgil Abloh Off-White Superfly 360 and the GS360 editions. Lately, Mbappe is part of the exclusive group with Cristiano Ronaldo and Sam Kerr along with a handful of stars to wear the Mercurial Dream Speed series.

Who is Kylian Mbappe?

Kylian Mbappe was born in Paris, France but began his professional career at the south of France with Monaco playing for their B side in 2015 before quickly moving to the senior side in the same year. His breakthrough season was in 2016-17 where he netted a whopping 26 goals in 44 matches for the club and helped the side to win Ligue 1 that season. A record fee was provided by PSG in 2017 making the Frenchman the second most expensive footballer of all time even up to this date, just behind Neymar who also joined the club that year.

In his first season at PSG he helped the club to convincingly win Ligue 1, the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue and because of that was awarded the 2017 Golden Boy award. At Russia 2018 Mbappe was instrumental in France’s World Cup campaign helping his nation to their second title with himself netting a goal in the final against Croatia. Mbappe and company in the French soccer team were awarded the Chevalier of the Légion d’honneur, the highest French order of merit in both military and civilian respects. Another Ligue 1 title went PSG’s way in the 2018-2019 season and again Mbappe’s contribution was significant. Mbappe simply has the world at his feet and should expect higher individual honours in the coming years.
