Nike has announced that FC Barcelona star Neymar will be the first soccer player to collaborate with their Jordan Brand.
The Brazilian striker will be wearing his own signature boot, a mostly red and black design featuring the number 23 and iconic Jordan “Jumpman” logo. Nike will also be releasing a full line of Neymar/Jordan merchandise, including a basketball shoe.
Neymar’s Hypervenom boot features the shark-tooth design that first appeared on the Air Jordan 5. His basketball shoe is an updated version of the Jordan 5, designed with a silver, black, blue and red color scheme. Neymar’s name is also stitched on the tongue.
Neymar will begin wearing his new boots when he competes for Brazil in the Olympics.
