Two legendary men of their respective games have teamed up in a Nike world first which sees premiere sporting codes mix.
The football-basketball fusion shows off bold design characteristics from both Neymar Jr and Michael Jordan through some unique pieces. This collection includes the Hypervenom II football boot bearing the iconic number ’23’ and ‘Jumpman’ motif of Michael Jordan as well as the fighter jet shark teeth as seen on the Jordan V.
As a tribute to this, the Jordan brand will also release the aforementioned Jordan V sneaker bearing the Neymar name stitched inside the tongue. It’s a fitting partnership as Neymar’s favourite Jordan design is the Jordan V.
Putting them together was only a natural progression according to Nathan Vanhook, Nike Football’s Senior Design Director. Watch the video below to witness how the collaboration came about.
