Neymar and Michael Jordan have collaborated on a unique release via Nike, who both stars are ambassadors for. The Brazilian has become the first footballer to feature MJ on his product, whilst the famous Jordan brand will feature Neymar on a special edition Jordan V Low.
Neymar’s boots, aptly named the NJR x JORDAN Hypervenom boots, takes inspiration from the Jordan V, his favourites from the Jordan collection. “The Jordan V is very iconic and has the fighter jet shark teeth on the front 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” says Nathan VanHook, Nike Football Sr. Design Director.
The NJR x JORDAN collection will be available from June 1st via the Nike Football App and June 3 on Nike.com.
