World Cup winner. Social acitivist. Now, Rapinoe is the owner of one of the coolest commemorative football boots.
If Megan Rapinoe was already a major player within the women’s scene before 2019, the pink haired forward is now a global superstar after her exploits at the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
The USWNT blazed a trail to their fourth Women’s World Cup winner’s trophy with Rapinoe front and centre as their clutch player. However, it was the social activism which won hearts worldwide as she fought for equality and feminism.
It took Nike awhile but they have finally come good by offering Megan Rapinoe her own signature colourway that will be exclusively worn by her.
Inspired by her bright pink locks, the exclusive Nike Mercurial Vapor is covered in the same shade of pink all over with gold accents adding a regality to her status in the game. Her first and last name appear prominently on the lateral sides of the boot, with “Just Do It” on the medial side. The heel counter and sockliner carry the four stars Rapinoe and her American teammates proudly sport on their national team jerseys.
It’s a major shame that this will not be available for retail as Rapinoe’s commemorative boots are a treasure. All we can hope for is to catch her wreaking havoc in her bright pink Mercurial Vapor.
