This week, Neymar became the first futbolista to get Michael Jordan-endorsed kicks. The Nike NJR x Jordan Hypervenom cleat is a perfect blend of the two super athletes, with the No. 23 and the Jumpman logo repping Jordan, and the Brazilian flag and No. 10 giving it a Neymar touch. The Barcelona forward’s shoe also sweetly sports his son’s initials, according to Fox Sports. Nathan Vanhook, the man behind the Air Yeezy 2, designed the boot, which took inspiration from the Air Jordan V.

Since the shoe officially launched this week, Neymar came to New York for a whirlwind promotion tour. He hung out with the New York Mets at Citi Field, where he also juggled a baseball and bonded with Yoenis Céspedes.
