With the 2014 World Cup next month, 23 is Back has been noticing that sneaker brands have been seizing this excellent opportunity to showcase their creativity with distinct sneaker releases. With the Jordan Brazil Pack, which includes this Air Jordan 6 colorway and another sneaker, Jordan Brand has also take an exciting yet simple approach. Considering the fact that it is in mid June when the World Cup festivities will kick off, it is not surprising that this pair is expected to be released on June 14th, just two days after the FIFA World Cup begins.
It was near the end of April when the sneaker world got a first glimpse at Jordan 6 “Brazil” colorway that is one of sneakers in this two-pair set. It should be obvious by now that the inspiration for this sneaker and the pair accompanying it comes from the 2014 World Cup that will be held in Brazil. Moreover, back in April, a Nike Football Media Event was being held in Madrid, Spain where Jordan 6 “Brazil” was displayed. Despite the fact that Jordan Brand has never been involved in the sport of international soccer, the label has confirmed that they have some goodies in store in spirit of the World Cup, including the kicks that come in the Brazil Pack.
Jordan 6 “Brazil” is going to be released to show somewhat of a support for Brazil, the host country in this year’s World Cup. For the readers who are more into basketball than soccer, the Brazilian national soccer team has already won five World Cup championships in the past. Hence, it is even more iconic that this upcoming Jordan 6 colorway is expected to be released at a time when the national team is hopeful that they will win the 2014 Cup as well. In April, it was also revealed that a similar colorway of the Jordan CP3.VII is the other pair that will be included in the Brazil Pack with Jordan 6 . Both pairs are going to get a limited release, i.e. just two thousand pairs are going to available for grabs.
Along with new Jordan release dates 2014, 23isBack recently got confirmation that the rumor is indeed true that Jordan Brand is indeed limited the release of Jordan 6 “Brazil” to just 2,000 pairs. This actually makes this pack one of 2014’s toughest pick-ups and the demand for both the pairs that are included will most likely be very high. A combination of black suede and tumbled leather has been brought to the Air Jordan 6 silhouette by this pair. The green and yellow highlights that are featured on the branding, heel tab, lace lock and midsole are obviously a nod to the national team. The outsole displays icy accents, reminiscent to the original colorway of this model.
Among Jordan release dates 2014, the release date of the Brazil Pack is likely to fall between June 14th and June 21st. Both the Air Jordan 6 “Brazil” and the similar Jordan Jordan CP3.VII AE colorway are going to be available as a set and it will not be possible to cop them individually. Nonetheless, both of these limited pair look like they are worth having.
