Nike Wants $500 For These Brazil-Inspired Air Jordan 6's and CP3.VII's
The World Cup is only a few weeks away and almost every company is rushing to release tie-in products for one of the world's most-watched events. Jordan Brand's attempt to get in on World Cup fever is the "Brazil Pack," which features a pair of Air Jordan 6's and a pair of Chris Paul's signature CP3.VII's with the color of the Brazilian flag.
How much does a handsome pair of Jordans and a decent pair of CP3s cost when paired together? An eye-popping $500.
Jordan Brand has gone with the two-shoe pack before (and they are obviously more expensive), but considering that most models of both shoes run from $130-170, that is quite a markup just for the pleasure of having to buy them both at the same time.
Complex's Russ Bengston was quick to point out that the cost of the coveted sneakers could be worse:
If the Jordan "Brazil" pack was really inspired by the World Cup hosts they'd be unfinished and at least $2,000.
