Having Kylian Mbappe boots won't definitely make you quicker… it's worth a go though, right?
The top scorer at the World Cup right now with five goals, Kylian Mbappe is Nike's golden boy. The Paris Saint-Germain speedster has donned the Mercurial brand so long as he's been burned the grass beneath his soles – and now, like all good superstars, he has a signature boot.
The American brand have reserved signature boots for Cristiano Ronaldo – so it's cool to see a French-flavoured design for the World Cup.
Kylian Mbappe boots: The Nike Zoom Mercurial Superfly 9 Elite KM FG have landed
You've seen the latest Mercurial boots, we're sure. They're the copper beauties that just about everyone has been wearing on the pitch at the World Cup.
They're also centre of attention in the Nike Footballverse ad that dropped before the tournament. While signature boots tend to be something completely different from the norm – a new colourway is common – Mbappe's new boots look almost identical to the originals, only with the French flag emblazoned across them among other stylish details.
"Kylian Mbappe's explosiveness, plus his twitchy change of direction, puts him firmly in the world class of finishers," Nike says. "With nods to his heritage, this boot is made to help you play just like KM—with blinding pace and purpose."
These aren't just among the best Nike boots on the market – they're some of the best boots of 2022. Available in Superfly version (with the ankle support) and the Vapor, these boots are specifically for the knockout stage of the competition. All the tech on these is the same as the standard versions.
