Last-Gen | Limited-Edition Nike Hypervenom Wayne Rooney 250 Goals Boots Released
Celebrating Wayne Rooney overtaking Bobby Charlton to become Manchester United's all-time top scorer, Nike just launched a limited-edition Nike Hypervenom to commemorate this memorable feat that is based on the now last-gen Nike Hypervenom 2. Rooney is expected to debut the second-gen special-edition Nike Hypervenom W250 cleats in Man Utd's next match.
"I want the best for not only my kids, but all children," says Rooney, who has three boys of his own, Kai, Klay and Kit. "That is why I started the Wayne Rooney Foundation. Every goal I've scored has been scored in Nike boots and I appreciate Nike highlighting my foundation with these boots, not just the record."
Nike Hypervenom Phinish WR10 250 Goals
This is the special-edition Nike Hypervenom Phinish football boot to congratulate Wayne Rooney becoming Manchester United's all-time top-scorer.
Red, white and black, just like Manchester United's kit, the limited-edition Nike Hypervenom Phinish WR10 boots are predominantly white, while the front and lower inside are red. The iconic zig-zag pattern, usually placed on the lateral side of the Hypervenom, is kept intact, although instead of the regular Hypervenom text it features a WR10 inscription.
A special graphic, colored gold and boasting a 250, a stylized crown above it and a short text underneath is present on the tongue of the red-and-white Nike Hypervenom Phinish Rooney boots. Another graphic can be seen on the sockliner, this time depicting Rooney's celebratory pose after scoring his probably best goal ever, an overhead kick against Manchester City in 2011.
Last but not least, the sole plate of the Nike Hypervenom Wayne Rooney 250 Goals cleats is black, completing the set of the colors.
Tech-wise, the Nike Hypervenom 2 WR10 soccer boots are identical to the second-gen boot's regular colorways. They boast a tongue-less construction, while their thin NikeSkin upper features a honeycomb-like structure and is designed to ease the break-in period and provide a flexible and responsive feel.
The outsole of the Nike Hypervenom Phinish Wayne Rooney 250 Goals boots comes with conical studs for rotational agility and is identical to the one used for the higher-priced Nike Hypervenom Phantom II cleats.
The special Nike Hypervenom Rooney 250 Goals cleats will be released in limited quantities on January 23.
