Nike Mercurial Mbappe Rosa 2020 Signature Boots Released - UCL Final Debut

Update: Mbappé's 'Mercurial Rosa' signature boots are now available to buy. Only the Superfly and Vapor Elite as well as the Superfly Academy versions are available.

Fresh off the heels of the unveiling of Jadon Sancho's first-ever Nike signature boots, Nike has also unveiled Kylian Mbappé's 'Pink Panther' signature edition, which is officially known as the Nike Mercurial Mbappé Rosa.

Mbappé is set to wear the boots in the 2020 UEFA Champions League final against Bayern Munich, the biggest match of his club career. Interestingly, the inspiration for the boots comes from a 2008 model that, while also worn by other players, was heavily promoted by then Bayern Munich star Franck Ribéry - something Mbappé mentioned in his announcement Tweet.

Mbappé's pink Nike Mercurial boots are available both as Vapor and Superfly, with Mbappé himself set to wear the high-cut Superfly version. Only the Elite and Academy tiers are available.

The Nike Mercurial Superfly VII Elite Mbappe "Pink Panther" soccer cleats are predominantly pink with a large white 'lightning Swoosh' on the outside.

This design, including the Swoosh placement, is closely inspired by the original 'Berry' Nike Mercurial boots from 2008, which were popularized by Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribéry, then in his mid-20s. They were Nike's first-ever pink football boots.

Mbappé recalls: "When I was a young boy around 10 years old I saw these incredible pink boots being worn by some of my favorite players in the world. I wanted those boots so badly, I begged my parents to get some and they told me that if I worked really hard and did well at school for long enough I could get these beautiful boots. I listened to my parents and worked so hard that in the end they had to get them for me. I was so happy! Now, I am so pleased that Nike have created my second product collection with these special boots for the biggest club match of my career! What a dream to wear them. They are the new versions of the pink boots I loved when I was a young boy and this is so special for me to work to achieve my dreams in these boots."

The tech of the second Nike Mercurial Superfly 7 Mbappé signature football boots will be the same as standard editions. The Nike Mercurial Superfly 7 Elite are made for speed. They have a low-profile Dynamic Fit collar with ACC technology and a podular sole plate system with an internal chassis.
