Nike Celebrate Kylian Mbappé’s 21st Birthday with Special-Edition Air Max 98
French football prodigy and Nike athlete Kylian Mbappé is about tick off another accomplishment in his short career, with his very own Nike sneaker set to hit stores later this month. As you’d expect, the Mbappé Air Max 98 comes decorated in several Kylian-specific details, including a KM tongue logo, Mbappé-graphic Air units, and 93/93140 insole detail — a shoutout to his Bondy roots. His current club, Paris Saint-Germain, hasn’t been forgotten either, with uppers and insole arriving in geometric greyscale camo, similar to that found on the PSG warm-up tops. Golden accents tribute his national triumph at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where he won the competition’s Best Young Player Award, to go along with France’s second-ever Cup victory (represented by the two golden stars on the left tongue) Tricolore lower lacestays cap off the national homage, while quick flashes of green on the outsole remind us of his early days at AS Bondy under coach and father Wilfried.
A release date for the Kylian Mbappé x Nike Air Max 98 is yet to be officially revealed, but we have a sneaking suspicion that the pair will arrive for the young star’s 21st birthday on December 20th, 2019.
