The original Defining Moments Package by Jordan Brand (and the first ever two-pair set in general) consisted of the Air Jordan VI and Air Jordan XI, signifying the two chapters in Michael’s illustrious careers that told the two stories of ‘threepeat beginnings’. And Air Jordan VI/XI hybrid might be stepping out of bounds into the territory of sacrilege, but there are acceptable ways of combining the two, like this great custom pair of sneakers done by LOBE. Structurally, the shoe is entirely ‘Air Jordan VI’, but the colorway is taken straight from the legendary ‘Bred’ of the Air Jordan XI, complete with retreated uppers of patent leather and ballistic mesh (or, close reinterpretations). The Air Jordan VI continues to be the go-to Air Jordan custom model, but can you blame it? Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think!

Really didn't have to go through all that trouble when we already have the Infrareds & Varsity Reds. This is virtually the same colour scheme but uglier. Props for the effort tho.
Looks like some flea market bootleg shit, the kind of shit the toothless guy sells in front of the local gas station/check cash by my crib. $40 a pop, 2 for $65 Lol. Nothing personal Lobe. Keep the ambitious drive going. Soles shoulda been ALL red though. Half done...
Hold it right there.....now slap yoself for this dumbass idea. These shoes look fake ass michael jackson's nose
Thank for everyone that likes and supports these. These were actually my 2nd pair of customs ever and im very happy on how they turned out. I made these customs from the 2010 white/red bulls 6s custom patent leather and used mesh and rope laces from the nikes sb space jams. And to everyone that dislikes them or says theyre fakes HAHAHA i simply dont give a shit lets see you come up with customs that every creditable shor site features and gets tweeted about since 8am.
nah!!! good effort though.....btw i would like to see something other than the 6's being customized every other day
