Nike Sweet Classic Black Canvas (Brazil)

These Nike Sweet Classics in black canvas with white sole are inspired by the Brazilian football team and their quest (yet again) to destroy the world in the World Cup this summer.  The splash print of a monkey screaming gives a unique design to the shoe but doesn’t overwhelm .  Also featured: a Brazil flag stitched on the tongue, monkey print on the insole.   See Sneaker Freaker for origins.

UPDATE: a reader pointed out to me that the heel panel where it says NIKE is made out of suede or leather.  It is definitely not canvas, and while it could be some synthetic material, I don’t think we should take the risk in assuming that it is.  Consider this a retraction… sorry everyone!
