Jordan Brand‘s 6 Rings is a homage-packed design that culls pieces from each and every silhouette Michael Jordan won championships in. However, it’s now surfaced in a new style that nods to a very specific trophy-themed sneaker: the Air Jordan 11 from 2006’s DMP pack. Although it’s not a spot-on recreation, several details and most of the colorblocking scheme are similar, making for a much more affordable and accessible re-work of a classic.

Constructed of a sturdy white ballistic mesh, the uppers present a crisp style that’s quickly overlaid with a bold black patent leather mudguard. The Air Jordan 8 is present thanks to the tongue’s chenille patch and collar’s straps, while the Air Jordan 6 “DMP” — a style that’s re-releasing later this year — gets some shine due to the heel tab. Large gold Jumpman graphics hit the heel as well while small-sized iterations appear above the toebox for an Air Jordan 14-style pop.

A gold Air Jordan 12-inspired “TWO3” hit runs down each throat, and a neoprene sockliner salutes the Air Jordan 7. Finally, a hidden touch is present on the inner tongue liner thanks to a fabric badge that acknowledges the Chicago Bulls‘ three-peat in the ‘96, ‘97 and ‘98 NBA seasons.Midsoles and outsoles are all Air Jordan 13, with the former dressed in white while the latter deviates from OG “GMP” stylings with an ice blue hue.

Physically manifesting championship greatness, the Jordan 6 Rings “White/Black” is available at the Nike webstore and Finish Line now, complete with a retail price of $170 USD.

Moving to the modern day, Zion Williamson rocked an Air Jordan 34 “Bayou Boys” PE during his NBA regular season debut.
