Among his endorsements include Nike, Dior, Oakley and Hublot. For Nike, he signed $187 million 10-year deal with Nike so long as he plays in a top-flight league. He first released his own personalized football boots at age 18, the Kylian Mbappé Nike Hypervenom 3. In 2018, he unveiled the Nike Mercurial Superfly VI boots which were inspired by the R9 Mercurial boots.
In 2020, Hublot signed Mbappé as their global ambassador, replacing Usain Bolt. CEO Ricardo Guadalupe said of Mbappé’s deal when it was first signed, “The generosity of Pelé and Kylian can be seen in their eyes, as can their love of football. This flame, this inextinguishable strength, is what drives these two great champions. They are inspiring new generations of footballers and writing the history of football, so it was perfectly natural to bring them together. Having them in our family is a great source of pride and pleasure, because before being football stars, they are above all great men who command respect.”
In 2020, Mbappé graced the cover of EA Sports’ “FIFA 21” and also “FIFA 22” making him one of the youngest players to appear solo on the cover. In the next year, he also released a book he released “Je m’appelle Kylian,” a graphic novel aimed at inspiring kids to chase their dreams.

Mbappé also founded the charity Inspired by Kylian Mbappé which helps 98 children in Paris with funds, in honor of his birth year 1998. When the charity was launched he said, “I’ve always been a dreamer, ever since I was a child. Today, I want to reach out to young children. We’re not here to sell a dream, but to help them build and achieve their own.”
Before the World Cup, Mbappe reportedly protested the French Football Federation regarding his and his team’s image rights. According to ESPN, Mbappé wants a say on which sponsors are associated with French players while on international duty as he does not want to endorse some brands, including fast food chains and betting companies, that are under contract with the national team. “I have decided to not take part in the photo shoot after the French federation’s refusal to change the image rights agreement with the players,” Mbappe said in a statement. “My representatives and I fully regret that no agreement could be reached, as asked, before the World Cup.” In a statement via Reuters, Mbappé was motivated by his own team to stand up to the Federation. “(The group) has always been behind me,” Mbappe said, “From the beginning, it was a collective move. It’s just that I don’t have any problem going to the front of the stage, fighting for my teammates. As I said, it’s not a big deal to take criticism. I’m used to it. It’s not going to change the way I play, or the way I live my life, and if it can help the group get what they want, that’s the main thing.”
