Neymar becomes first player to collaborate with Jordan Brand
Nike has announced that FC Barcelona star Neymar will be the first soccer player to collaborate with their Jordan Brand.
The Brazilian striker will be wearing his own signature boot, a mostly red and black design featuring the number 23 and iconic Jordan “Jumpman” logo. Nike will also be releasing a full line of Neymar/Jordan merchandise, including a basketball shoe.
Neymar’s Hypervenom boot features the shark-tooth design that first appeared on the Air Jordan 5. His basketball shoe is an updated version of the Jordan 5, designed with a silver, black, blue and red color scheme. Neymar’s name is also stitched on the tongue.
Neymar will begin wearing his new boots when he competes for Brazil in the Olympics.
