When Michael Jordan won his first NBA Championship he was wearing the Air Jordan VI. This sleek model was designed by Tinker Hatfield and features a design inspired by MJ's slant-nosed Porsche. In recent years many of the original colorways of this highly sought-after model have been re-released, and some new colorways have hit the shelves too. The latest of these "never before seen" models is this year's limited "All-Star" edition. They are crafted with an iridescent leather upper that changes colors depending on the light . Plus, also sport a translucent outsole, signature lacelocks, and an embroidered octagon logo on the heel.
Celebrating Michael Jordan’s first championship with the Chicago Bulls 23 years ago, Jordan Brand is releasing the ‘Celebration Collection.’ The collection consists of two all-new colorways of the shoe worn by Jordan en route to his first ring, the Air Jordan 6. Cigar and champagne inspired colorways pay homage to the celebratory activities that took place in the Bulls’ locker room after their big victory.
The purple hue works the shoe’s nubuck and leather upper, offset by mesh panels and black hits on the tongue, laces, eyelets, inner lining and pull-tab. Below, a speckled midsole, translucent chassis and icy outsole.
The shoe sports a game royal tumbled leather upper, accented by playful hits of vivid pink and lucid green on the laces, tongue and midsole. As usual, a blue-tinted translucent outsole finishes off the look below.
