2018 World Cup champion and FIFA Young Player Award winner Kylian Mbappé is now launching his first collection with Nike, paying tribute to his hometown of Bondy, a Parisian suburb in France. At just 20 years of age, the Paris Saint-Germain forward is both the youngest player and first French footballer to ever get a personal collection from Beaverton. The collection is crowned by his own take of the legendary Mercurial Superfly 7, and includes an Air Max 98, a Nike FC jersey, a hoodie, a T-shirt, a cap, a hip pack, and even a football. The entire range is filled with various nods to both France and Bondy, dressed with a green, black and gold color scheme.
“Bondy is always in my heart; it’s where I found and fell in love with football,” says the French number 10. “It helped shape me as a person and as a player. I have a lot to be thankful for and it is special that Bondy is at the center of this collection. Back then I had my heroes and many of them had their own special edition Nike boot, so to join them in now having one of my own is a dream come true.”
For Mbappé fans out there, the Bondy Dreams Mercurial Superfly 7 will be available globally on December 8 over at Nike’s online store, while the full Bondy Dreams collection will be available on the same day, exclusively in Europe.
Elsewhere in football apparel, Score Draw has launched a new retro-inspired Arsenal collection.
