Where were you when Jordan won his first chip? While 32 years have flown by at the drop of a hat, the iconic sneakers from MJ’s legendary ’91 campaign remain one of Jordan Brand’s most popular silhouettes, and for good reason. Now, the beloved set of kicks is being doused in an equally famous colorway, as the Air Jordan 6 ‘Cool Grey’ has finally hit shelves.
Sticking to the original shoe’s sports car-inspired design, the latest pair of 6s is highlighted by its unique construction and details, boasting the original leather overlays, icy outsole, heel tab, and trusty lace lock. But, most striking of all is its chic, minimalist color palette adopted from the famed Tinker-designed Air Jordan 11, which has appeared on several other Jordan and Nike silhouettes, with the most notable example arguably being the yellow-accented 3s that also happened to see a re-release just a few years ago.
Additionally, the kicks are finished with the inimitable Jumpman logo and AIR branding at the heel. All things considered, this brand-new release is practically the best of both worlds for fans of sneaker lore, as Nike fuses two of the most notable elements in Jordan’s catalog to design one top-tier pair fit for virtually any occasion. And while we’ve already seen a plethora of rehashed silhouettes since 2023 began, it only gets cooler with these grey-coated 6s.
The Air Jordan 6 ‘Cool Grey’ is available on SNKRS today for $200.
