Stunning Nike Hypervenom Neymar Ball Released

Hyper Grape, Black and Volt. The Nike Neymar Prestige Ball boasts a stunning design, inspired by the new Nike Hypervenom Phantom Electro Flare Pack Soccer Boots.

Last week, Nike revealed the all-new Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Electro Flare Pack Boots. While it was expected that Neymar would headline the bold Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Cleats, the Barcelona superstar surprisingly switched to the Nike Mercurial Vapor X Boots.

This is the purple Nike Hypervenom Neymar Prestige Football.

The Hyper Grape Nike Neymar Prestige Ball boasts the trademark design of the Hyper Grape Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Boots. The upper of the Nike Neymar Prestige Football combines the colors purple and black with the striking color Volt for the signature Neymar logo and the unique splatter graphic print.

Tech-wise, the Nike Neymar Prestige Soccer Ball offers the same features as non-signature paint jobs. Made for training days, the Nike Prestige Ball comes with a traditional 32-panel upper design and a machine-stitched TPU surface for excellent touch and durability.

The Nike Hypervenom Neymar Prestige Soccer Ball retails at a price of 35 USD (25 Euro, 20 GBP) and is already available at selected retailers.

But what's most interesting about the ball is that it illustrates the problem faced by Nike. While the US-giant firmly plan with Neymar wearing the Nike Hypervenom, it gets off the rail if the Brazilian superstar laces up in the Nike Mercurial Boots.

Nike couldn't know that Neymar would switch to the Nike Mercurial when they designed the ball. What do you think of the Nike Hypervenom Neymar Prestige Football? Let us know in the comments section below.
