With the forthcoming 2016 Summer Olympic Games to be held in Brazil, this next variation of the Air Jordan 10 essentially pays tribute to Rio de Janeiro — Brazil’s second most populous municipality, famed for its Copacabana and Ipanema beaches.
Sporting a clean wolf grey hue across its pebbled leather upper, the light shade is offset by obsidian accents gracing the eye stays, inner lining, laces, tongue and rubber sole unit. To further symbolize the South American country, the outsole flaunts a mixture of yellow, green and blue tones to evoke the country’s flag. In addition, an embroidery of the nation shaded in teal is located across its collar, which essentially replaces the traditional number “23” or “45.”
Renz Ofiaza, News: I’m generally a fan of this silhouette. The theme and homage to Brazil is a cool gesture, but I’m not really that inclined on this colorway. It should still garner some attention obviously, especially those from the vibrant country.
