Here is a look at a new angle of the World Cup edition Air Jordan 6 Retro. Leather and mesh built, the kicks are set in black with Brazilian national color accents from speckles to solid colors. A release date is still unknown but expect these to drop over the summer.
The practice of pegging nicknames to sneakers has been around for a while. Sometimes, these titles are born internally, while others are a result of fabrication by the public. Recent chatter has called this upcoming Air Jordan 6 Retro as the “World Cup” given the rather obvious color similarities to Brasil’s Yellow and Green, However sensible that may sound, there are still a few reasons as to why that nickname falls a bit short; for one, the World Cup logo has dashes of blue and red (both of which are absent here), and the minty green paintjob on the heel of the midsole is hardly pertaining to the South American country. Official or not, these Air Jordan 6 Retros are beginning to pick up that World Cup moniker, but what do you think? Do these have any bearing to the 2014 football tournament?
This Air Jordan 6 is being dubbed the “Brazil World Cup” colorway and it’s pretty fitting. These Air Jordan VI’s features a black leather and suede upper along with yellow and mint like colors throughout. Check the images below and stay tuned for release info.
