Neymar Jr.’s Special Edition Gold Hypervenom, by Nike

posted by Oscar June 25, 2014

This summer’s World Cup has already delivered plenty of exciting games, great play, and best of all, beautiful soccer. Now Nike has unveiled a special edition of they Hypervenom boots, gold-colored to satisfy the dream boots that Neymar Jr. grew up wishing he had. Denis Dekovic, Nike Football Design Director, talks about the new boots in the news release by Nike:

When we met with Neymar he told us that when he was 12 he used to spray paint his boots gold. He said that he always wanted a pair of gold boots but that he couldn’t find them anywhere. So we took that insight and decided this summer would be the perfect moment to create this boot for him.

Neymar originally unveiled the first edition of the Hypervenom so it’s only right that the Brazilian star gets a special edition version of his own to shine with during the rest of his World Cup run. See more pics below.

*The boot will be available on www.nike.com from June 26th.
