Marking the Jordan Brand‘s 23rd anniversary, 2014 has seen plenty of classic sneakers retroed. As the shoe Michael Jordan wore when he finally won his first NBA championship, this Air Jordan 6 colorway isn’t just the latest — it’s one of the best.
With an all-white upper, as well as “Sport Blue” and black accents throughout, it once again shows that the 6 works best when it’s simple and efficient. As an end-of-summer release, the “Sport Blue” 6 is hitting at the perfect time, too, and will help merge your laid-back summer style with the cooler weather of the fall. It played the same role for Jordan’s career, marking the end point of the first chapter of his playing days — when he couldn’t win and was scolded for being selfish — and the beginning of the next phase — when he morphed into a maniacal winner and the biggest icon in basketball history.
The sneaker is dropping this Saturday at Champs Sports. Make sure you’re ready for it.
