Watch out, Lionel Messi. Neymar is striking the field now.
Turning into a professional soccer player at the age of only 17, it’s clear Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior was born for this life. His father, a former professional player himself, influenced his determination and passion for the sport. Dominating the streets and beaches of his hometown in São Paulo with a soccer ball at his feet and dedication in heart, Neymar was destined for greatness.
Like most of us, Brazilian International soccer star of the Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team as a forward or winger, Neymar, grew up loving Team Jordan and the Jordan Brand. So, it’s only natural that he, being the biggest soccer star on the planet right now (alongside Messi and Ronaldo), be given an exclusive collaboration with Nike and Jordan; Becoming the first soccer player to be sponsored by the Jordan brand.
Who knows, some might even be as bold as to petition for this sneaker to turn the Jumpman upside to create a more soccer esthetic and rename it, “The Kickman.” No? Too soon?
