Nike has unveiled Neymar’s first signature edition Mercurial Vapor: the Neymar Jr. “Written In The Stars” Mercurial Vapor. 

The new boot is a storied take on the classic Mercurial Vapor silhouette in vibrant Blue Orbit and Volt, featuring various nods to Neymar’s career highlights to date.

Two of Neymar’s many highlights with Brazil are acknowledged within the design.

First, his debut goal for Brazil against the United States when he was just 18 years old. And second, last summer’s triumph in the Olympics — acknowledged via reference to Maracana Stadium.

References to Neymar Jr.’s family also appear. 11.03.96 references the birthdate of his beloved little sister, Rafaella. 24.08.11 signifies the birthdate of Neymar Jr.’s son, David Lucca.

Neymar Jr.’s birthdate, 02.05.92 is on the boot as well, as is his top speed, 34.7 KM/H.

The dotted geographical figures on the boot mimic maps of Barcelona and Brazil respectively.
