From a very young age and growing up, Neymar has always been a massive fan of Michael Jordan. Both his basketball achievements and his sneakers. Now Nike introduce the second chapter of the two superstars joint collaboration.

Taking design inspiration from Neymar’s love of Michael Jordan, and the way he idolised him and his drive for greatness, Nike decided to make him the only footballer in the world to wear the infamous Jumpman logo. This has now resulted in a second colourway drop, which once again fuses the world of basketball with football, by reimagining a Jordan V colourway on the Hypervenom silo.

“Michael Jordan set the standard for greatness. He’s an incredible competitor and a champion. I’ve always admired him, so to collaborate with him and have his icon on my boots means a great deal to me.” - Neymar Jr.

The Nike Hypervenom Neymar X Jordan are available now on unisportstore.com through this link.

On the first Nike Hypervenom Neymar X Jordan the colourway took from the iconic Metallic Silver Jordan V colourway, while this new homage to MJ23 is inspired by the equally legendary Fire Red. The upper material is still the matt finish, which is only used on the Neymar X Jordan line of Hypervenom. When that is then paired with the reflective Swoosh and tongue, you get a totally unique look that is reserved only for this special collaboration.

I'm excited that Neymar and the Jordan Brand are working together. I'm a fan of his creativity, style and passion for the game of soccer. He's a special player and I look forward to this collaboration. - Michael Jordan
