Nike release range of boots designed specifically for players born in 1995 or later

The 'Rising Fast Pack' will only be worn by Nike athletes born in 1995 or later, like Kylian Mbappe, so Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo wouldn't be able to use them

It would take a brave person to tell Cristiano Ronaldo he isn’t allowed something.

But that’s exactly what the case is with Nike’s new ‘Rising Fast Pack’ release, which is dropping today.

It’s not only Ronaldo that would be disappointed if he wanted a pair. Neymar, Wayne Rooney, Sergio Ramos and Robert Lewandowski would all be sent packing.

The reason?

Nike’s ‘Rising Fast Pack’ will only be worn by players born in 1995 or later, hence the name.

So Kylian Mbappe, Marco Asensio, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial would all be eligible.

So the Hypervenom, Mercurial, Magista and Tiempo ranges will all be on sale.

Luckily the age limit doesn’t apply to general release, so there’s no need to bring your ID along.
