Check out the making of Neymar's upcoming Jordan Collection.
Brazilian soccer star, Neymar, is set to become the first footballer in history to have an Air Jordan created in his name.
Michael Jordan and Neymar Jr. share a mutual respect that transcends sports, countries, and languages. Neymar Jr. grew up a fan of the man and the brand, while Jordan appreciates Neymar Jr.’s style on and off the pitch.
Now, as part of a unique Nike/Jordan collaboration, Neymar Jr. becomes the first soccer athlete to feature the Jumpman on his performance product. Additionally, the Jordan Brand will release a Neymar edition of the Jordan V Low with “Neymar” stitched inside the tongue.
Designed to mimic Neymar's outrageous play on the pitch, the 'Neymar' Air Jordan 5 Low features a fully reflective silver upper with black speckles and beaming infrared accents throughout. Furthering the ties to Neymar, the kicks will also include his #10 as well as the classic #23.
Select Nike and Jordan Brand retailers will be serving up the 'Neymar' Air Jordan 5 Low this week, June 3rd- the kicks will carry a solid $200 price tag.
