Nike has been pulling out all the stops with its World Cup-themed sneakers. After dropping the "Magista," "Mercurial," and "Gold Hypervenom" collections as a tribute to its lineup of Football boots, the Swoosh honors the country of Brazil—the host of the World Cup.

Nike takes the two largest cities in Brazil to create the "Rio vs. São Paulo" pack. The collection features the following Jacquard sneakers: Lunar Force 1 Mid, Tiempo '94 Mid, Air Max 97, and Blazer Hi.

The "Rio" collection is inspired by the city's outdoors and wildlife, and features a green color palette with vibrant accents. Its counterpart, the "São Paulo" collection, is designed after the city's signature sidewalks, also known as Portuguese pavement.

The entire collection releases at Nike Lab starting today and is also available at select Nike retailers like international store Patta.
