Brazilian soccer player and Nike athlete Neymar Jr has recently revealed that he is cooking up two pairs of Nike Shox R4’s in a new collaboration.
Neymar Jr has scattered his fans evenly throughout, as the Brazilian soccer player has become one of the most famous athletes in the world. He is one of the few to call himself a Nike athlete and is likely one of their top performers. Now he looks to have two signature Nike Shox R4’s in the works
The original retro Nike Shox turns 19 years old this year. As the silhouette and “Shox” cushioning system is argued to be one of the most iconic models in sneaker history, the hype died down when other technology was introduced. Nike looks to revisit the past and team up with Neymar for two different colorways that might just revive the legendary shoe.
The two pairs look to be the exact opposites of each other. One has a bright neon gradient upper that features crimson red accents. While the second is dressed in all white and contains a red Nike Shox cushioning system. As both are widely different, they both contain Neymar branding on the tongue.
As of now, not much is known about the shoes or the collaboration itself. Furthermore, detailed pictures can be seen below and as more information is released JustFreshKicks always has you covered so stay tuned for updates.
