You had to have an inkling that Jordan Brand were going to do something special for the 23rd anniversary of the AJ6. His Airness laced up the Six to claim his first championship back in 1991, setting off a serious streak of glory years for the Bulls through to 1998. We've already seen the Cigar release, and now we see the second half of the 'Championship Pack'. We know Michael has a stogie in one hand when he wins big, but what's he have in the other? A bottle of the finest bubbles from Champagne, France, of course. That serves as the inspiration here, with the dark green bottle replicated on the leather upper, while the gold lace cover acts as the bottle top and the speckle on the black midsole could be taken as some bubble love. A championship ring shaped lace lock is the final touch, and a very classy one at that, and you can look to grab the whole package when it drops in the American summer.
