Neymar, The Raw Talent
Brazil's talent for producing amazing footballers? We present proof number one: Neymar jr.
Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, common known as Neymar or Neymar Jr., was born the 5th of February in Sâo Paulo, Brazil. He began his youth career in the club Portuguesa Santisa, but in 2003 he moved to another Brazilian club known as Santos. Here, Neymar made his professional debut at the age of 17. The move to Santos should later prove not be a bad idea, as he became one of the most spectacular and hyped players in the world. Neymars crazy skills earned him a spot in FC Barcelona in 2013, and since then, Neymar has never looked back.
Neymar has become one of the most popular football players on the planet. The smaller but oh so fast Brazilian, has taken the world by storm - using his talent for tricks, acceleration and flair for goals.
Every fan knows Neymar, everyone wants to be him and wear his Neymar football boots. We all want to be like Neymar and fly down the pitch, with the football glued to our feet. Some days the only way to stop him, seems to be to do an illegal tackle - he is almost impossible to close down on his best days.
Neymar has been an amazing player, so he should obviously also have a pair of signature boots. But what is the Neymar boot all about?
The debut of the upcoming Neymar Boot
The first time we sheeted light upon the Nike Mercurial was in 1998, when Ronaldo, also known as Il Fenomeno, debuted the original Nike Air Mercurial boots. The boots were originally released in black, but to craft a boot suited to Ronaldo and his explosive style, Nike had to come up with something different. The innovative thinking resulted in a version in silver/blue/yellow, which was, at that time a groundbreaking design, never seen before. But the redesign of the boot, was not at all the only thing that changed. Also the technology within the boot reached another level. Firstly, the team behind the boot, introduced the synthetic kangaroo KNG-100, which was a completely new type of material than seen before. The second major breakthrough was reducing the plate thickness. The standard back then was 3 mm. but Nike went against the law of physics, and introduced a plate thickness of 1.75 mm. Luca Bolpagni, from Nike’s Product Creation Centre said, “Everything was shocking at the time. The look, the materials, people didn’t know what to think. It was a truly exciting moment”. This quote highlights the extreme innovative era of football boots.
The Nike Mercurial made a great impression on a young Neymar Jr.. Neymar is quoted “Those were the boots everybody wanted, I wanted them too”. So it was no surprise to see Neymar wearing the Nike Mercurial Superfly ll, when Neymar debuted for the Brazilian National team, at the age of 18.
Not only did Neymar make a debut at the age of 18, Neymar also scored in his debut wearing the Nike Mercurial “I scored my first goal for Brazil in those boots, so they will always be very special to me”.
Nike Mercurial, The Neymar Boot
The Nike Mercurial is the perfect boot for the player who has a need for speed, which is also the reason why Nike Mercurial and Neymar is the perfect match. Nike Mercurial is arguably one of the most innovative football boots ever made, and has pioneered the world of football boots since its creation. Even though the technology and design has changed over the years, the identity of the Nike Mercurial football boots has stayed the same. Attention seeking design and colourways for those who dare, has been, and will most likely always be a fitting description of the Nike Mercurial boot.
