Worlds collide this weekend, as one of soccer’s brightest stars informs one of the signature shoes of basketball’s greatest of all time.
I speak, of course, of the Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar, the first in a series of collaborations between Jordan Brand and Neymar Jr. that will also includes Jordanized editions of the Brazilian’s Hypervenom boot and Hypervenom court shoe. The Air Jordan 5 features the model’s iconic curves and (lowtop) silhouette, even black and red accents, Jordanesque in their iconography.
But the shoe exemplifies Neymar’s personality and skills too, as as reflective silver upper channels his on-pitch flash and flair, while one heel boasts his jersey number, 10; Michael Jordan’s 23 appears on the opposite shoe.
Today, official photos of the Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar surface, ahead of that June 3 launch. Are you copping a pair?
