Nike has teamed up with Brazilian artist Bruno Big to create a unique collection with a Brazilian flair dubbed “Ousadia Alegria” for soccer star Neymar Jr. The name of the collection translates to ‘daring’ and ‘joy.’ The collection features an eye-catching pair of cleats and trainers covered in a bold design.
There are two district designs Bruno Big created for the collection; the heart (Ousadia) and a hand (Alegria). From each of those, the design transforms giving each side of the shoe a distinct, mismatching pattern. "When you take your time to look at them, despite the boots looking the same, they are not," Neymar said. He also gushed about the new cleats on his Instagram.
