Given his performances of late, it was only a matter of time before Nike propelled Robert Lewandowski to the front and center of the Hypervenom II series. They are in need of a fresh lead focal player for the silo, and 12 goals in 4 games offers a pretty pitch perfect platform!
This release was presented to Lewandowski as a custom “celebratory” design, so as it stands their won’t be other pairs available. The Red/Black Hypervenom II takes inspiration from Lewandowski’s fighting spirit and incorporates fiery graphics that connect to the player’s past, emphasizing the intrepid characteristics that make him fearless in confrontation and lethal in front of the goal.
In Lewandowski’s own words:
Every time I step onto the pitch, I know that I will fight for the best result for my team. Having these Hypervenom made just for me is a true recognition and inspiration. Fierce, demanding battles await us and it is very special to have these boots full of personal and meaningful symbols to mark this important time of my football life.
Central to the design is the Eagle – a principal element of Polish visual identity. The motto of Lewandowski’s hometown of Warsaw, “Semper Invicta” (Always Invincible), also appears, reinforcing the striker’s steely mindset. Other symbols on the boots include Lewandowski’s personal logo, jersey number and a judo belt that pays tribute to the player’s father, who was a judo athlete.
You won’t be able to get your hands on a pair like these, but you can personalize your own style of NikeID Hypervenom!
