Football…ahem…soccer madness will be upon the world thanks to the World Cup, so Jordan Brand paid homage to the game and the host city with the new Brazil Pack. The limited edition kicks and apparel feature festive colorways of the Air Jordan VI and the CP3.VII AE.
The 9-piece collection specifically owes its colors (mostly black but with hints of green and yellow) to the Brazilian flag.
Says Jordan Brand:
A highlight of the collection, the Varsity Jacket, features Michael Jordan’s accolades and celebrates Brazil’s quest for another championship. The Hybrid Jersey nods to Nike’s football kit from last year by merging football and basketball silhouettes to create an unexpected piece in the assortment.
Driven by performance and the concept of flight across sport, the two-shoe pack includes the CP3.VII AE, the latest version of the CP3.VII designed with Chris Paul’s elusive and attacking style of play in mind. Featuring exposed dynamic Flywire technology and no-sew construction, the CP3.VII AE is designed for quick transitions, powerful lateral movement and precision passing and shooting—all hallmarks of both football and basketball.
The other shoe in the pack, the Air Jordan VI, is a silhouette familiar to global competition and victory as Michael Jordan wore the Air Jordan VI while winning his first championship. Premium full-grain nubuck and suede leather grace the upper, while subtle pops of color and speckle add energy to the iconic frame.
The gear will be available starting June 12 while the Jordan Brazil Pack is out June 21 for a price tag of $500. Do not expect this set to stay on shelves.
