We told you yesterday about how bad Neymar is at playing baseball, but the Brazilian superstar is world-class at playing soccer, which helped him land a deal with Jordan Brand to become the first footballer to receive his own pair of Jordans.
The unveiling of the shoe was released by Nike today, and the things are so dope.
From Nike Football Sr. Design Director Nathan VanHook, per UPROXX:
“The Jordan V is very iconic and has the fighter jet shark teeth on the front,” explains Nathan VanHook, Nike Football Sr. Design Director, “and the Hypervenom II that Neymar Jr. wears has an almost modernized version of that feature, so we took those elements and put them together.”
Here are some more pics of the boots:
In addition to the cleats, the soccer star collaborated with Jordan Brand on a pair of Air Jordan 5 Low “Neymar,” which are set to hit select stores June 3.
Pretty cool to see Jordan Brand grace the pitch, so who better than Neymar to be the first iconic player to don the Jumpan logo?
