News; Nike Hypervenom Phantom II FG Boots Bronze/Black/White

Published: Thursday 21 January, 2016

The new Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Neymar boots have been leaked. The new Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Neymar football boots introduce a bold design, exclusive for Neymar and inspired by his motto "Ousadia e Alegria". They will be available from January 31, 2016.


The Nike Hypervenom "Ousadia e Alegria" soccer cleats are the third Nike Hypervenom signature boots for Neymar, and the first to be based on the second generation of the silo. Introduced in the summer of 2015, the Nike Hypervenom 2 boots followed on the very successful first generation and introduced a heightened, Dynamic Fit collar for the first time.


Just like the Nike Hypervenom Phinish, the top-tier model features a bold all-over graphic. Only the trademark Dynamic Fit collar and the sole plate don't boast the print. Bold red accents in the form of the top trim of the collar and the big Swooshes on toe and heel complete the unique design, exclusive to Neymar Junior.

Whereas the upper pattern appears quite random at first, it's actually an enlarged version of a graphic design created by Brazilian artist Bruno Big. Representing Neymar's motto "Ousadia e Alegria", which means "Courage and joy" in English, it also gives its name to these boots. The heart and fist, both drawn by Bruno Big in his signature style, are also present on the insole of each shoe, while they are better visible on the accompanying clothing collection.


Tech-concerning, the Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Neymar 2016 signature cleats are identical to the other Nike Hypervenom Phantom II boots released over the last few months. They combine a synthetic NikeSkin upper with Flyknit for the collar and tongue, while the agility sole plate remains the same as for the first generation.


Nike revealed that the new Neymar cleats will be available as a pre-order in the Nike Football App from January 31, 2016, while regular stockists and Nike.com should carry them shortly afterwards. Set to cost slightly more than the regular Nike Hypervenom Phantom II soccer boots, the Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Neymar "Ousadia e Alegria" collection will also oversee the launch of several takedown and even FootballX models.
