Neymar Jr. and Nike have hooked up to release their newest Nike Hypervenom Liquid Diamond soccer cleat. The newest addition to the Hypervenom series sports a brand new colorway and will become available for pre-sale via the Nike Football App Jan. 26 and will be on nike.com January 28th, 2015.
Neymar Jr.’s affinity for diamonds helped inspire Nike’s design team to create the unique colorway. “We take inspiration from Neymar Jr.’s play and personality,” says Max Blau, VP Nike Football Footwear. “He attacks the defense with a style so fluid, it reminded us of water flowing between rocks. That’s when we started shifting our thoughts from incorporating a nod to diamonds, to creating a liquid diamond aesthetic for the entire upper.”
The NikeSkin upper of the Hypervenom provided a textured canvas, enhancing the dimension of the color. After experimenting with a variety of different shades, the Hypervenom Liquid Diamond began to emerge, with colorful accents as a nod to Neymar Jr.’s personality.
