Jordan Brand will often take care of the college sports programs that it sponsors every year by fashioning special player exclusives. In 2022, the Air Jordan 6 is being highlighted and distributed to various Jordan-backed universities across the US, and after seeing a “UNC” variation surface earlier this month, we now have a closer look at the PE for the Oklahoma Sooners.
Much like the iteration crafted for the Tar Heels, this newest installment essentially possesses the same types of materials and design elements but in the color schemes aligned with the Norman-based institution. Cracked leather makes up a majority of the upper half and comes dyed in a crimson tone. Contrasting hits are present via the milky tongue and heel tabs as well as the sold black chenille patches that split between a “23’ on the right foot and a Jumpman logo on the left. Smaller notes of white also appear across the laces and Oklahoma logos on the heels. Midsole pieces get whipped up with a yin-and-yang palette and get stacked above a pre-yellowed outsole which gives off somewhat of a vintage effect.
Check out the pair in the gallery above and note that these will not be sold to the public.
