The Jordan 6 Rings has been been making more consistent appearances here in the new decade and has recently surfaced with UNC and Hare-inspired color schemes. The hybrid silhouette is now further extending its winter output with a reissue of its “Motorsports” makeup that originally launched in 2010.

For context, the “Motorsports” mantra was first brought into fruition by Michael Jordan and his camp in 2010 as it spoke to the six-time champion’s affinity for racing. It was applied three silhouettes including that of the Air Jordan 4 which saw a white/black/royal presentation, as well as the Air Jordan 6 and Jordan 6 Rings, both of which identically were adorned with white/black palettes. The latter is now being offered up for a second time on the market since originally launching 11 years ago.

The hybrid model, which sports characteristics from classics like the Air Jordan 6, Air Jordan 7, Air Jordan 8, Air Jordan 11, Air Jordan 12, Air Jordan 13 and Air Jordan 14, arrives in true 1:1 format. Canvas bases with leather mudguards are clean as can be, and sit next to black laces, interior elephant print and racing-inspired Jordan logos laid onto the tongues.

Curvy midsole units are given a glossy coating, and come glued on top of all-black outsoles.

If you want to add these to your rotation, they are available now via Nike Hong Kong for $161 USD.

Elsewhere in footwear, the Florida Gators’ Air Jordan 5 PE has been unveiled.
