Nike releases The Air Jordan 6 DMP 14 years after first release

If you’re a Jordan fan, then you will know that today is the day that the Air Jordan 6 DMP’s are being released as part of the Retro line. They are retailing at £170 on the official Nike store in case you missed the release 14 years ago.

You might recognise these trainers as they are originally part of the ‘Defining Moments’ pack which was released in 2006. The Jordan brand released a set of 2 trainers that paid tribute to two of Michael Jordan’s greatest basketball moments. They intended to commemorate the athletes first and fourth championships from the 90’s. The Air Jordan 11’s were released alongside the Jordan 6 model which he wore during his victory against the Los Angeles Lakers in 1991 in what would have been his first NBA championship. To pay homage to that win the Air Jordan 6 DMP’s has been made available for the first time as a solo release.

The trainers that have gone on sale today look different to the Air Jordan VI with the memorable red accent which he wore back in 1991. These, however, showcase the traditional black and gold colourway. They have a visible air unit and translucent sole with the gold Jumpman logo, that same logo is also embroidered onto the tongue of the trainer. The ‘23’ logo is stamped onto the heel in gold which perfectly adds to the gold midsole accents. If you are lucky enough to purchase a pair, they also come with a metal gold tag and matching gold coloured box.  

These trainers look best with black jeans as that will make the gold accents more noticeable and pairing them with an oversized black hoodie will keep you looking casual. These trainers have such an incredible history that you don’t want to distract away from them.

The Jordan brand has outdone itself once again by re-releasing these revived, iconic shoes that have had people talking for 29 years since his victory back in 1991
