Nike have officially launched the vibrant new Mercurial Vapor 360 designed by Virgil Abloh that will be worn by teenage sensation Kylian Mbappé for Paris Saint-Germain against former club Monaco on 31st March.
The coloured dots on the unmissable orange boots represent optimal strike zones, creating a striking visual. Abloh's unique 'Off White' branding will also feature on the instep.
"For this Mercurial, I was interested in bridging the gap between foot and eye coordination. All the dots on the boot represent an optimal place to strike the ball," Abloh said.
"In my approach, I thought about what it would be like if I saw someone wearing the boot.
"Design is a powerful tool, as it communicates energy and a message, and it offers a unique capacity to make someone do a double take on-pitch - I feel like it would be intimidating to see this boot."
Nike Mercurial Vapor 360 x Virgil Abloh, to be worn by Kylian Mbappé on pitch 31st March, drops in limited numbers on nike.com that same day.
