Just a few days ago, PSG forward Kylian Mbappé was spotted wearing the Air VaporMax shoes from the Nike x Off-White collection, which prompted speculation about a possible football boot collaboration between the Swoosh and fashion designer Virgil Abloh, the founder of Off-White.

Today, Mbappé was joined by team mate Neymar in an Instagram story wearing truly interesting Nike football boots, which we believe are the next-gen Mercurial Vapor 12. Just a few minutes after the story appeared on Dugout's official account, it was swiftly deleted, most likely on Nike's order. Thanks to everyone who quickly shared it with us on Instagram, allowing us to make this post.

Mbappé's Nike Off-White Mercurial football boots are entirely black with two solid orange Swooshes, one on the instep and another across the forefoot, as well as an orange outsole.

The Nike Mercurial Vapor XII will be debuted in Spring 2018 in the colorway worn by Mbappé.

Stay tuned for a full leak and updates on release date and pricing.
