Boasting a design inspired by the Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar sneakers, the Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Jordan x Neymar boots are black and come with a grey sole with black speckles. The sole of the Nike Neymar Air Jordan football boots also features the iconic Jumpman logo, in red.



A large Swoosh, colored in Reflective Silver, sits on the outside front of the Air Jordan Neymar soccer cleats, while the Jordan logo is visible on the heel. Paying homage to Michael Jordan and Neymar, the two sports stars' respective shirt numbers are printed on the heel of the right and left shoe.



Tech-wise, the Neymar x Air Jordan football cleats are based on the regular Nike Hypervenom Phantom II boots, although a few differences are evident.



Most notably, the upper of the Air Jordan Neymar football boots, although based on NikeSkin tech, features a completely different structure than the standard Hypervenoms. The trademark Flywire strings of the second-gen Hypervenom cleats are present in the Nike Hypervenom Air Jordan Neymar boots which are the first-ever football boots bearing the logo of the Jordan Brand.


Retailing at $375, the spectacular Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Jordan x Neymar cleats are made in Italy and come with a custom box and bag. They are expected to be available in limited quantities only, from June 1, 2016.


“Michael Jordan set the standard for greatness,” says Neymar Jr. “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.”

"I'm excited that Neymar and the Jordan Brand are working together," said Michael Jordan. "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."
