Check Out Nike’s Limited Edition Mercurial In Honour Of Megan Rapinoe
We want them!
Megan Rapinoe has been awarded a Ballon d’Or after leading the US Women’s National Team to World Cup Victory, and to honour this, Nike have released a unique pair of custom made soccer boots.
The pink and gold colorway pays homage to Rapinoe’s signature pink hair and the trophies she’s secured—the Golden Ball and Golden Boot, to name a couple. Instead of the Mercurial Vapour branding, the soccer boots display Rapinoe’s name in gold lettering on the lateral side, with “Just Do It” on the medial side. The heel stripe of each boot is adorned with four gold stars, representing the four World Cup victories acquired by the US Women’s National Team.
Nike have said that these are “one-of-a-kind boots for a one-of-a-kind player” and so will not be available to purchase in store. Rapinoe’s soccer skills wont be the only thing turning heads on the field.
