Nike's partnership with Virgil Abloh has extended to the pitch, with the designer lending his aesthetic flair to the Mercurial Vapor 360. The overall design, featuring a bright orange finish, is complemented by Abloh's signature OFF-WHITE branding, as well as strategically placed striking cues. "For this Mercurial, I was interested in bridging the gap between foot and eye coordination," says Abloh. "All the dots on the boot represent an optimal place to strike the ball." Arriving in a custom box, the shoe will be worn by Kylian Mbappé on the pitch on March 31. That same day, it drops in limited numbers on nike.com.
