A Closer Look at the Special Edition France "White/Gold" Nike Boots

The World Champions return to action tonight for the first time since their heroics in Russia this summer. To mark the occasion and to pay tribute to their 2018 World Cup success, Nike have supplied all of their players in the French squad with special edition "White/Gold" boots.

The French squad will take on Germany in Munich tonight in their opening UEFA Nations League match and every Nike sponsored players in the squad will be wearing the exclusive design on their respective boot silo. The Mercurial, PhantomVSN, Hypervenom and Tiempo have all been equipped with shimmering golden soleplates and pristine white uppers for a premium vibe.

Nike throw further personalisation at the rear of the boots as the French tricolour flag sits above two stars on the heels to honour the 1998 and 2018 successes. Kylian Mbappe and co have already got to grips with their new designs in training this week ahead of wearing them in competitive action against Germany tonight and then the Netherlands on Sunday at the Stade de France.

The one-off designs won't be dropping as a public release, with all players set to wear them this week only, before reverting into their usual colourways. This is the sort of treatment you get when you win a World Cup. Smart.
