Kylian Mbappe’ and Oakley Launches their First Sunglass together, with A Special Nod to 1998


1998 is the year where it all started. That year, France won their first world title, on their own turf. That same year, an urban legend started to spread around a new-born, who would someday bring that title home again. Oakley knew who this champion is and created a Signature Series sunglass to celebrate him.

Today, Kylian Mbappé and Oakley releases the latest Team Oakley football star’s signature piece, just in time for the world’s most prestigious football competition. Deadbolt was hand-chosen by Kylian to perfectly merge the worlds of sport, technology and style. A radical sunglass with an unconventional design that embodies the desire to push boundaries and challenge the norm, something Kylian has done throughout his personal and professional life. As an ode to both Kylian’s birth year and the year his country won the World Cup as host nation, only 1998 units of this limited-edition Signature Series Deadbolt will be available for purchase.


Deadbolt’s distinctive and contemporary black and gold coloring draw inspiration from the prestigious Ballon D’Or award, France’s famous football award. The Kylian Mbappé Signature Series Deadbolt comes with a Satin Black frame made from a premium titanium material, which balances lightweight comfort and sophistication off the pitch, paired with Prizm Lens Technology.

“When I first joined Team Oakley, we spoke about the ways in which we wanted to bring our shared desire to inspire the next generation to life over the course of our partnership. My hope is that this first collection will do just that by reminding young people everywhere that the world’s best athletes and musicians and artists all started with a dream.” said Kylian Mbappe

The Kylian Mbappé Signature Series Deadbolt is now available in Oakley MBS store and selected certified resellers.
