Neymar Junior made his first modeling appearance by featuring in Kim Kardashian’s next SKIMS Mens line, which will hit the public on Thursday, October 26. The Brazilian footballer had suffered a long-term injury and will need months of recuperating to bounce back to sound health. If that goes to plan, he should be back in 2024 at some point.
Men’s tanks, t-shirts, briefs, boxers, and underwear will all be available at Skims Mens in cotton, stretch, and sports collections.
Sports stars other than Neymar were also picked to represent the company. Other athletes picked to advertise the line include Nick Bosa, the 2022 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, and NBA All-Star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the Oklahoma Thunder.
Kardashian and Grede founded SKIMS in 2019, and according to WWD, the company is currently valued at $4 billion. Kardashian also owns the hair loss remedy company Hims. Kim had earlier visited Japan in July to watch Neymar play while the Brazilian was still at PSG.
Kim and her son Saint West were amongst the crowd present for the intriguing 0-0 tie between Neymar’s Paris Saint-Germain and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr in a pre-season friendly. Saint West was given a small surprise when the game was a wrap, as he was spotted wearing Neymar’s PSG shirt. Saint West, who is only seven years old, was too giddy when Neymar gifted him his jersey after his game.
