Nike has shared an update to their Neymar and Michael Jordan collaboration, the NJR X JORDAN collection, with a new colorway for the Hypervenom boot. The collection first launched back in June of this year, which saw the Brazilian star become the first football (soccer) athlete to feature the Jumpman on his performance product while the Jordan Brand released a Neymar edition of the Jordan V Low with “Neymar” stitched inside the tongue.

The new colorway transforms the boot into a white model inspired Neymar Jr.’s favorite the Jordan V with the signature shark teeth in red and the iconic cement print overlay. Another update brings the number 11, which Neymar wears for Barcelona, to the left boot and Jordan’s defining number 23 is on the right; the previous edition saw a number 10 on the left boot because that’s his number for the national team.

Check out more shots of the updated NJR x JORDAN Hypervenom below. Continue Reading

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.

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.
