The Collection

Hypervenom Boot
“The Jordan V is very iconic and has the fighter jet shark teeth on the front,” explains Nathan VanHook, Nike Football Sr. Design Director, “and the Hypervenom II that Neymar Jr. wears has an almost modernized version of that feature, so we took those elements and put them together.”

Neymar Jr.’s Brasil 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. Jordan’s iconic cement print is recreated on the soleplate of the Hypervenom, along with the Jumpan logo underfoot.

Nike, Jordan and Neymar are never one to miss details. The initials of Neymar Jr.’s son (“DL”) appear on the laces, as does the icon of the Brasil flag.

Jordan V Low – Neymar Edition
It’s not just all football (soccer) gear. Additionally, the Jordan Brand will release a Neymar edition of the Jordan V Low with “Neymar” stitched inside the tongue, as well as apparel and a football training shoe. Marking the first time the Jordan Brand has launched a complete collection for an athlete who is not a member of the Jordan Brand. Not too shabby!!!
