Ahead of the Air Jordan 6 “DMP” drop this weekend, Jordan Brand has tapped some of its athletes and artists to share their “defining moments.” As the DMP 6 is a shoe that practically exudes greatness — it first released alongside an Air Jordan 11 in a memorable 2006 pack that nodded to Michael Jordan‘s first and fourth NBA Championships — the stories told by the modern-day Jordan Brand family are perfectly in-line with its victorious ethos.

Cactus Jack-affiliated singer/rapper Don Tolliver, MLB All-Star third baseman/shortstop Manny Machado, Dallas Mavericks guard/forward Tim Hardaway Jr, NFL Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore, singer Leikeli47 and New York Liberty guard Asia Durr all share brief anecdotes about pivotal points in their careers. Though responses ranger from solemn to celebratory, all show how a “defining moment” is different for each and every person.

See all six responses above, and expect the Air Jordan 6 “DMP” to release in full family sizes tomorrow, April 18 via Nike SNKRS and retailers like Foot Locker. Men’s pairs are priced at $200 USD, kids at $140 USD, preschool at $80 USD and toddlers at $60 USD.
