Air Jordan 6 (First Championship)
Every year from his debut felt like a breakout year for Michael Jordan, he just got better and better, but his true arrival surely came in 1991 when he kissed the golden Larry O'Brien for the first time. In that year he also added the MVP and Finals MVP trophies to his cabinet, and led the NBA in points, field goals and average points per game. He did it all in the Air Jordan 6, so it's a pretty special shoe. This new colourway of the 6 is apparently Jordan Brand's ode to that great first title, and it's a colourway that would have slipped right into the times. It's simple, with white leather dominating the upper; tidy translucence taking over the outsole, heel pulls and tongues; and some fiery Bulls red accenting the back end and branding. Serve up some speckle on the midsole too and we've got a comfy sneak here that demands respect without putting too many noses out of joint by being particularly adventurous. Jordan Brand has called these a 'special project' and does not plan to release them, but the incredible reception for the design may sway them yet. We'll keep you posted. Pics via Nike, Inc.
