Mirrors Featuring Neymar Jr. and Nike Hypervenom

As Neymar Jr. returns to action, Nike releases a film featuring the Brasil and Barcelona star and the new color of the Hypervenom boots he'll wear this season.

"Mirrors" features the Brasilian forward in a creative interpretation of the attacking skill that makes him one of the world’s great players.

The combination of his agility and deadly instinct in front of goal enhanced by his Hypervenom boots deceives defenders like a House of Mirrors. At times its seems to defenders like they are playing against multiple Neymars, unable to tell which is the real one until he breaks through to score.

Hypervenom Phantom

The Hypervenom Phantom Boot was first unveiled by Neymar Jr. in June 2013 in Rio, prior to the Confederations Cup.

Designed to give attacking players an advantage, it features a number of innovations to help players find an extra yard of space in a crowded penalty area:

FIT:  NikeSkin technology - a soft, supple mesh bound with a thin polyurethane film fits closer to your foot for a more natural touch.

TOUCH: All Conditions Control technology for optimal ball control in dry or wet weather.

TRACTION: Split-toe plate designed with agility traction pattern for quick response.

The Hypervenom Phantom is now availble at nike.com.
