We’ve already seen football and basketball culture intertwine when Jordan and Neymar Jr. had their own collaborative football boot back in 2016. But now, the Jumpman logo is going to be seen everywhere; on two special edition match kits, two football boots, and apparel. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Jordan and Paris Saint-Germain collection.
The two football boots included in the collection are the Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Elite and the Phantom Vision Elite. They both feature predominantly black Flyknit uppers, blacked out Nike swooshes, red soleplates, and red detailing throughout, nodding to the prominent color on Paris Saint-Germain kits and one of Jordan Brand’s heritage colors. The Jumpman logo can be found in black at the heel and on the sockliner of both boots, and in red on the boot bags. You can expect to see Neymar Jr. wearing the Mercurial Vapor XII Elite and Marquinhos wearing the Phantom Vision Elite on the pitch.
For the sneakerheads, this collaboration also brings a special edition Air Jordan 5 Retro featuring PSG x Jordan branding (with the Jumpman logo replacing the “A” in PARIS and placed in the middle of the PSG circle logo), a transluscent outsole, and the number 75—a postal code for Paris—near the heel. They’re available in very limited quantities, so if you’re interested in a pair, you’ve got to be quick.As for the kits, they’re built on a Nike Vaporknit Match chassis and feature black and white colorways with red accents. The Jumpman logo will replace the iconic Nike swoosh on the chest. The kits will be used as Paris Saint-Germain’s third and fourth kits. The goalkeeper kit comes in bold Infrared, a nod to one of Jordan Brand’s heritage colors.
The Jordan Brand x Paris Saint-Germain collection releases on September 14, and the club will debut its Jordan Brand kit on September 18 during European competition. What do you think of this high profile collaboration? Let us know in the comments below!
