Back in early 2018, KITH released the extremely limited edition second chapter of its ‘Long Live The King’ collaboration with Nike Basketball and the LeBron 15 signature shoe – a sneaker that PSG forward Neymar has worn this week as he stepped off the team plane ahead of his side's match against Montpellier.

Neymar’s well known not only for his flamboyant style both on and off the pitch, but also for his love of basketball, and chapter 2 of KITH’s ‘Long Live The King’ collaboration with Nike therefore is right up his alley. The extravagant collection was extremely limited on release and is still fetching re-sale values of around the £1k mark. Pocket money for Neymar, but a statement of his streetwear influence.


The most expensive player in the world opted for the ‘King’s Cloak’ option from the ‘Long Live The King’ collab for his trip to Montpellier, one of the performance builds which features a white Primeknit upper with colourful regal embroidery and a gold Riri zip. The sneaker dropped as part of a four-piece collection in 2018 that featured two performance shoes, two lifestyle editions and a clothing capsule from Ronnie Fieg's NYC-based streetwear label KITH.


As you’d imagine, Neymar enjoyed a goalscoring return to the PSG starting line-up on the weekend in the Coupe de France final against Rennes, but it didn’t go to plan from there, with the match ultimately ending in defeat for PSG in a penalty shootout. Neymar swung a slap at a fan too, but we'd bank on him doing worse if you stepped on these.
