Jordan Brand Embellish a Beloved AJ6 for Chinese New Year
Jordan Brand will celebrate Chinese New Year with a special edition retro release, this time reviving 2006's beloved Air Jordan 6 grail. Leaked images reveal the Jumpman's 2018 CNY design, which appears to be a highly embellished version of the 'Defining Moments' pack's AJ6.
Slight differences from the original design are noticeable, such as the use of leather overlays in place of nubuck and a red Jumpman on the outsole instead of gold – although the most glaring difference is the abundance of ornate embroidery all over the upper! These decorative details will no doubt leave Jordan fans divided.
If you're feeling the Air Jordan 6 'Chinese New Year', rumours point to a January 2018 release.
