Combining pieces from the seven shoes Michael Jordan captured his six NBA Championships in — the Air Jordan 6, Air Jordan 7, Air Jordan 8, Air Jordan 11, Air Jordan 12, Air Jordan 13 and Air Jordan 14 — Jordan Brand‘s 6 Rings is a hybrid homage to MJ’s greatness. Now, for its latest colorway it’s drawing inspiration from the classic Air Jordan 7 “Hare.”
Directly borrowed from the “Hare,” this 6 Rings’ color scheme mixes a perforated white mudguard with an AJ11-style light gray upper. White straps from the AJ8 and heel tabs from the AJ6 add further flair. Tongues feature a vibrant “Hare” print and chenelle badge above the red neoprene throat, which takes a “TWO3” hit from the AJ12. More AJ6 style arrives via a red lace lock and red Jumpman heel hit, with the toebox adding a small Jumpman of its own for a subtle nod to the AJ14.
The shoe’s bottom half is all AJ13, mixing white and red midsoles with green and yellow garnishes on the white outsole. For a finishing touch, the inner half of each tongue boasts a special tag that nods to MJ’s six titles with the Chicago Bulls: the right shoe acknowledges 1991, 1992 and 1993, while the left salutes 1996, 1997 and 1998.
“Hare” fans can pick up a pair of this Jordan 6 Rings via Nike China for $170 USD. A North American release is likely to follow in the coming weeks as well.
