In addition to his own colorway of the Air Jordan 5 Low, Brazilian soccer star Neymar gets a collection of gear in his collaborative capsule with Jordan Brand.
The centerpiece of the collection is the NJR x Jordan Hypervenom football boot, which takes inspiration from the Jordan 5, Neymar’s favorite sneaker.
The Jordan 5’s reflective tongue is reinterpreted on the tongue-less Hypervenom in the form of a bold reflective Swoosh. The reflective properties consume the Neymar Jr. edition of the Jordan 5 Low, on which the entire upper is reflective as well. The brand’s iconic cement print is recreated on the soleplate of the Hypervenom, along with the Jumpan logo underfoot. Then, the initials of Neymar Jr.’s son (“DL”) appear on the laces, as does the icon of the Brasil flag. Hi number 10 appears on the lateral side of the left boot and per Neymar Jr.’s request, the number 23 is on the right boot paying homage to Jordan.
Both numbers appear in the respective font of the jerseys worn by the athletes, while the sockliner and packaging feature a lock-up of Jordan and Neymar’s logos, while the boot heel features the Jumpman exclusively.
Additionally, the collection includes apparel and a football training shoe, making the first time the Jordan Brand has launched a complete collection for an athlete who is not a member of the Jordan Brand.
Neymar Jr. will wear the NJR x JORDAN Hypervenom on-pitch this August, while the NJR x JORDAN collection is available now in youth and adult sizes, via the Nike Football App and June 3 on Nike.com.
