Today Brazil celebrates their Independence Day, Sete de Setembro. Like we have for France and the United States, today we’ll take a look at some of the best Brazil inspired sneakers, or Brasíl depending on what part of the world you’re from. Some fresh kicks have been created thanks to world’s 5th largest country.

Brazilian inspired sneakers come from some of the greatest footballers the world has ever seen, the great Ronaldinho and Pelé. adidas used the countries largest city, São Paulo, for the name of one of their running shoes. The country’s flag also has been the inspiration behind a number of colorways from Nike, including the Zoom FC, the Air Force 1, and others. One of the most forgotten is the super limited Fabio Cristiano Dunk Low which released in late 2008.

Which is your favorite Brazil inspired sneaker? Do you have any others in your collection?

Does anyone have the Rodrigo Petersen or Cezar Gordo Dunks they can upload?
