Nike are back with a second edition release in the NJR X JORDAN Hypervenom collaboration series. All the tech specs are the same, with a new White/Red paint job, which is quite the opposite of the original, providing a fresh iconic look.
Something else that is slightly different is the numbers used. On the original black version, Neymar had his Brasil number, 10, placed on the lateral side of the left black boot. This time around his Barcelona number, 11, appears on the left white boot. Per Neymar Jr.’s request the number 23 is on the right boot of both colorways in homage to Jordan. The sockliner and packaging feature a lock-up of Jordan and Neymar’s logos, while the boot heel features the Jumpman exclusively.

In addition to the Hypervenom and Jordan V, the NJR x JORDAN collection includes apparel and a football training shoe. This marks the first time the Jordan Brand has launched a complete collection for an athlete who is not a member of the Jordan Brand.
“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.”
