More references to Neymar Jr.'s family also appear on the cleats. 11.03.96 references the birthdate of his beloved little sister, Rafaella. Neymar Jr.'s birthdate, 02.05.92 is on the boot as well, as is his top speed, 34.7 KM/H. The dotted geographical figures on the boot mimic maps of Barcelona and Brasil, respectively.
