After weeks of leaked images and rumors, Nike has today announced a limited edition collaboration with Neymar Jr., which takes shape in the form of two Nike Shox R4 colorways. 

In speaking about the first pair of Shox that debuted in 2000, the Brazilian soccer legend says the kicks became an instant object of desire. "They were like a shoe of the future,"recalls Neymar Jr.

The first Neymar Jr. x Nike Shox R4 serves as a nod to the metallic detailing and reflective elements of the original launch colorway. By mirroring the hues of a watermelon, the second connects directly to the buzzing markets around São Paulo that were a constant in Neymar Jr's childhood. “The crazy color combination,” he says of the shoe. “I like it!"

The Nike Shox R4 Neymar JR pack is officially set to drop on May 30 via nike.com and at select Nike retailers. Scroll down for some additional images of both colorways.
