Neymar Debuts First Signature Mercurial

It was only a matter of time, wasn't it? Neymar's inevitable signature Nike Mercurial line gets underway as the Barcelona man laces up in his first ever exclusive Mercurial Vapour XI design to score both goals in a 2-0 win over Juventus in New Jersey.

He's the man of the moment, and Nike have capitalised on the 'will he, won't he' move to Paris Saint-Germain by supplying the world's most talked about player with his very own signature Mercurial Vapor XI. Since Neymar's move from the Hypervenom to the Mercurial a signature line was always in the plan for Nike and they've delivered just as Neymar dominates the headlines on and off the pitch.

Neymar is the future of Nike Football. No question about that. Well, he's most certainly the next chapter in a post-CR7 story. The next frontman of the famed Mercurial line. A marketable icon with charisma off the pitch and talent on it, proven by the success of his NJR x Jordan collaboration, and now confirmed by a first look at his debut signature touch on the Mercurial series.  

Arriving in a bright blue, white and volt colourway, the first Neymar Mercurial design features a storyboard of the Brazilian's career. On first look there's a tribute to Brazil's five World Cups along with personal landmarks in Neymar's life on and off the pitch, features that will become apparent when Nike launch the boot for real in the coming days. Performin' in Paris or ballin' in Barcelona, when Neymar kicks off next season, he'll be wearing a new era regardless.
