Nike releases Wayne Rooney tribute boots

Following the news that Manchester United player Wayne Rooney has become the club’s all-time top goalscorer, Nike has launched a new pair of football boots to commemorate him.

The firm has unveiled a special edition pair of Hypervenom WR250 to mark Rooney’s achievements in football.

The boots come in red and white, the colours Rooney wears for his club and country, while also boasting a logo with a crown and the number 250.

Nike has also made reference to his squad number, by placing WR10 on the side of the boots.

“I want the best for not only my kids, but all children,” said Rooney in a statement.

“That is why I started the Wayne Rooney Foundation. Every goal I’ve scored has been scored in Nike boots and I appreciate Nike highlighting my foundation with these boots, not just the record.”
