Engineered for the attacking striker, the Nike HYPERVENOM Phantom Premium FG Men's Firm-Ground Football Boot has a split-toe plate to maximise agility and a one-piece NikeSkin upper for a barefoot-like touch on the ball.
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.”
