Nike NJR x Jordan Hypervenom II "White/Red"

Fresh J's on display. The Nike Neymar x Jordan collaboration picks up the pace with a secondary colour update on the Hypervenom Phantom II, as two of the biggest Swoosh icons in their respective fields add to their unique collection. Neymar and Jordan are two men distinct in style in and out of their day jobs and the continuation of their Nike partnership celebrates that.

The two sporting powerhouses first launched their debut collection back in June 2016, with Neymar Jr. becoming the first footballer to feature the Jumpman on his boot. Four months on and Nike have flipped the colours from the original design to create a white and red edition of the Hypervenom Phantom II with dark grey detailing, featuring a couple of minor visual tweaks.

Some description

The Jumpman logo appears again underfoot and the initials of Neymar Jr.’s son (“DL”) appear on the laces, as does the icon of the Brasil flag. On the previous edition it was Neymar Jr.’s Brasil number, 10, that appeared on the lateral side of the left boot, but on the "white/red" update his Barcelona number, 11, is featured. The number 23 is on the right boot of both colourways in homage to Jordan and the sockliner and packaging feature a lock-up of Jordan and Neymar’s logos, while the boot heel features the Jumpman exclusively.

Some description

The NJR x JORDAN Hypervenom football boot takes inspiration from the Jordan V, Neymar Jr.’s favourite. The Jordan V’s reflective tongue is reinterpreted on the tongue-less Hypervenom in the form of a bold reflective Swoosh and Jordan’s iconic cement print is recreated on the soleplate of the Hypervenom. As with the first boot worn by Neymar in the Olympics, the second "white/red" update will be supported by the Barca man for a handful of games in La Liga this month. No limited edition tag on these, but a special release nonetheless.
