Kylian Mbappe currently wears the Nike Mercurial Superfly football boot and is considered to be one of Nike’s biggest footballers along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, both of whom also wear the Mercurial. Mbappe’s Boots are used by Nike to market their line for pacey forwards like Kylian, who is set to become one of Nike’s most powerful assets for the next decade in the football industry.
Not related to James Bond. Just the seventh iteration of the Mercurial series that includes a select group of Mercurial wearers as its pitch ambassadors. They were lead of course by CR7 and Mbappe, and the MDS007 has that red to orange colour show with graphic pattern of Xs and Os on the quarter.
Mbappe joined his Nike mates in wearing the dedicated boots for the group stages of the 2023/24 UCL tournament. Peak Ready Superfly had that bright turquoise upper and a purple graphic panel that contained the cutout AIR branding. It was more plain-looking relative to the Mbappe Baltic signature that was dominated by comic-like aesthetics.
Mbappe wore this Baltic blue pair of Superfly Air Zoom boots at the beginning of season 2023/24. It was notable for its vibrant design comprised of comic-like gutters and brandings that aptly captures his superhero-like on-pitch speed.
Who better to represent the silver with pink Superfly XXV (General Pack) than the French superstar known for his bursting speed towards the goal? With most of the Nike players wearing the season-ending Luminous Mercurials, the striker and just a handful of names wore the celebratory Mercurial Pack, matching the silver anniversary of the silo with the best of the best Superfly and Vapor players today.
This is exclusively a commemorative boot for Mbappe achieving the all-time top goalscoring record for PSG. The design is the same as the Mercurial Superfly 5/Vapor 11 from the 2017 ‘Lock In Let Loose’ pack, with additional details that refer to Mbappe himself, his chart-topping goal number and the match where he achieved the milestone.
The quickest to react and the fastest on the ball usually end up with the honours bestowed upon the winners of the game. The MDS006 implements a floral design to symbolise such glorious moment, and with players like Mbappe and CR7 this special Mercurial series can inspire the next generation to be driven by focus and determination to be on top of the football world soon.
Move at the speed of your dreams with the new Mercurial Dream Speed 6.
Worn by the biggest dreamers in the game, celebrate those who believe in you, and show your competitive fire every time you step on the pitch.

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.
