One of the most lauded non-OG Air Jordan 6 colorways of all time, the Air Jordan 6 “DMP” is set to re-release for the first time ever in January 2020. Originally debuting in 2006 as 1/2 of the Air Jordan “DMP” pack alongside an Air Jordan 11, this black and gold iteration of Michael Jordan’s sixth signature sneaker nods to his first-ever championship with its trophy-esque colorway.
The upper is constructed entirely of a stark black nubuck, with signature gold accents gracing the lace toggle, throat’s neoprene cover, heel, and heel tab. These true-to the original details provide a bold contrast with the subtle base, acknowledging Jordan’s greatness with the Chicago Bulls while providing street-ready style. Down below, the mixture of black and gold continues on the midsole and an icy blue translucent outsole completes the look.
The Air Jordan 6 “DMP” is tentatively scheduled for a January 25, 2020 arrival at $200 USD. It’ll hit retailers as a solo release — as of now, Jordan Brand hasn’t revealed any plans to reintroduce the pack’s AJ11. If you don’t feel like waiting, pairs of the original 2006 style are available now at Stadium Goods.
Elsewhere in the Jordan Brand universe, Eric Koston recently teased a brand new Air Jordan 1 Low SB “Lance Mountain” with wear-away detailing.
