One of the biggest football sensations right now in the world, Kylian Mbappe has been the talk of the town all summer with him reportedly looking to leave Paris Saint Germain to complete a transfer to Real Madrid.
Though he has ended up staying at PSG, he has amazed his fans in a new fashion.
Have you ever felt nostalgic about the comic books you used to read when you were a kid? Well, Mbappe surely does.
The Frenchman is known to release signature boots throughout the years and they have had stories related to his past. This time, he has combined the worlds of sports and pop culture into a completely new boot.
After the success of his boots ‘KM Flames’, a new range of boots in collaboration with Nike, has been introduced with the main inspiration behind them being Mbappe’s favourite childhood manga ‘Whistle!.’
These special-looking boots have a comic book style that encapsulates the journey of a boy from Paris reading mangas and comic books to Monaco and moving back to Paris to fulfill his dream of becoming a top professional footballer.
What makes these boots stand out from the other football studs is that they contain a lot of graphical details.
A baltic blue upper layer along with the sundial-colored Nike logo firing swoosh on the outside with a graphic inside which says ‘Rapide’.
On the heel, you can witness the certified ‘KM’ logo as well as a big Zoom lettering on the outstep. Apart from all the graphics, these boots feature an all-new, football-specific ¾ zoom air unit in the plate, an all-new vaporsite plus a redone Nike Flynit upper for increased ball control.
The tri-star studs provide multi-directional traction, while the toe-off center studs offer traction during explosive starts.
There is a lot to love about these boots which come into the market price at around 275 USD or 230 GBP and are available in both Superfly (high cut) and Vapor (low cut) versions.
The different colorways include Baltic blue, White, and Sundial.
But the best thing about this launch is that a whole range of products under this new ‘Manga x Football’ fashioned umbrella will be featured.
The whole collection will include kids’ apparel, shin guards, backpacks, and even a football. The apparel will be made available in different colours of blue, black, and white and will include cartoonish graphic designs on them.
The shin guards, football, and backpack would also match the shade of blue on the new Air Zoom Mercurial colorway boot.
These exciting boots capture perfectly Kylian Mbappe’s creativity and innovation off the field as well and are surely going to make anyone wearing them feel more confident and poised in themselves.
