Neymar Jr. & Nike Introduce: Hypervenom Liquid Diamond

posted by Oscar January 26, 2015

Check out the latest release from Nike for FC Barcelona and Brazil star Neymar Jr. The new boots are the Hypervenom Liquid Diamond, and they are inspired by the footballer’s affinity for diamonds and his relationship with his sister.

Nike’s design team used those pieces of Neymar’s personal life to create the unique colorway. Max Blau, VP Nike Football Footwear said in the press release:

“We take inspiration from Neymar Jr.’s play and personality… He attacks the defense with a style so fluid, it reminded us of water flowing between rocks. That’s when we started shifting our thoughts from incorporating a nod to diamonds, to creating a liquid diamond aesthetic for the entire upper.”

The Hypervenom Liquid Diamond will be available for pre-sale via the Nike Football App starting January 26 and will be on nike.com on Jan. 28. Peep a full gallery after the jump.

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.

Video: Nike Football – Dare to be Brasilian

posted by Oscar December 1, 2013

Nike Football (Nike Soccer, to those of us in the states) has come up with another awesome video to help remind you that no one in the world captures the spirit of “the beautiful game” quite like the Brazilians. Starring Thiago Silva, Paulinho, David Luiz, Bernard and Neymar, the clip displays each player (sporting the new Brazil home kit designed by Nike) showing off their skills in different eras, through animation and in different settings. Truly awesome stuff.

See that video above.
