Kylian Mbappe Flames Boots

Dean Ariola

As one of the established football stars now, Kylian Mbappe is a regular in signature releases. Nike bestows him another special edition pair of the Mercurial Superfly 8 called Mbappe Flames. ‘Flames’ encapsulates Mbappe’s career so far-his meteoric rise, trailblazing speed, hot scoring form, and ultimately passion for football.

The predominantly colour of the Mbappe Flames boots is light purple (officially dubbed as Light Thistle). The purple shade covers the Flyknit tongue and collar, as well as the Aerotrak soleplate. True to the name, the Superfly Signature boot employs flame graphics in outline and solid forms, using silver for a sparkling finish. A hazy underlay colouring in orange and silver adds a dynamic look to the visuals. The Nike brandings and logos stand out in contrasting black.

The boot screams football ambition and glory as it represents the multiple league and cup titles and the world cup championship of its superstar. Football fans expect more from the young Mbappe, especially on the UCL stage. His purple Flame boots jive well with the colour theme of the tournament.

With another signature Superfly to his name, Mbappe is slowly but surely becoming one, if not the face of the iconic Mercurial line.
