Remixing classic Air Jordans to produce something new is anything but that by Jordan Brand. The line celebrated their 20th Anniversary in 2005 and brought back long time designing legend Tinker Hatfield to create the Air Jordan 20.
That year also saw the release of a “tribute” sneaker to the work that Tinker had done with the Air Jordan line and thus the Dub Zero was created. This shoe was a mixture of some of Tinker’s best work of the Jordan 4, Jordan 6, Jordan 11, Jordan 12, Jordan 13, Jordan 15, and Jordan 20. In 2006, Jordan Brand put together a shoe that fused all the Jordans that Spike helped Mike promote. The Jordan 3, Jordan 4, Jordan 5, Jordan 6, Jordan 9, and Jordan 20 came together as the Spiz’ike.
As Air Jordan celebrates 23 years of perfection, a new shoe has been created from existing parts – the Air Jordan Six Rings. This shoe borrows elements from the six sneakers that Jordan wore during the seasons he won NBA Championships: Jordans 6-8, and Jordans 11-13. This first colorway will release in November this year, but there are several colors set to release into 2009. Leaked sample pic posted first on Kenlu.
All I have to say is Wow. I might have to do some sleeping out to get a pair of these shits.
