The Air Jordan 6-17-23 combines the Air Jordan VI, Michael’s first Championship-winning sneaker, and the Air Jordan XVII, Michael’s Wizards come-back shoe. These dropped earlier this year in a ‘Carmine’ inspired colorway, but reverts back to the AJ17 with this new release taking after the OG colorway of the seventeenth Air Jordan. The upper features a tonal white upper with pebble-textured panels, while the midsole combines the blue midfoot plate and a metallic silver accent above a translucent outsole. Already called the best Air Jordan 6-17-23 colorway, these are set to drop tomorrow at Jordan Brand retailers, but grab a pair now on eBay.

Michael Jordan’s legendary drive was tested severely in the late ’80s as his Chicago Bulls were ousted from the playoffs by the Detroit Pistons’ ‘Bad Boys’ in three consecutive years. The second of these was an Eastern Conference Finals loss while MJ was wearing the Air Jordan IV, and with this new Air Jordan 6-17-23‘s translucent outsole sections offering a blue tint that brings to mind images of the AJVI ‘Pistons’, it seems natural to include the AJIV’s signature speckled midsole sections. It was during the 1991 postseason that Jordan exacted his revenge in the Six, rocking Deeetroit Basketball with a sweep en route to his first of six championships, and while this has little to do with the infused AJXVII elements, it makes for a nice narrative referring to the early part of Jordan’s legend. Click through to get a better look at this upcoming 6-17-23, stick with Sneaker News for updates on their release and if you wanna grab yours early, look to the limited size run currently available from SneakerApe.
