The Photo That Inspired the Air Jordan 6 “Cigar” + “Champagne”

champagne cigar jordans The Photo That Inspired the Air Jordan 6 Cigar + Champagne

We all know cigars and champagne are somewhat of a universal party favor when it comes to celebrating major events. For Michael, both the tobacco and the bubbly were his go-to treats when we won his many Championships, and in this rare post-Finals photo, we may just have the inspiration behind Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan 6 “Cigar” and “Champagne”. There are probably plenty of photos of MJ in that same pose from any one of his Finals-winning years, but we feel this one encapsulates that winning attitude like none other (it was taken after the ’98 Finals). Our question to you is – which of the two do you like better? Stay tuned to Sneaker News for release dates and let us know what you think of this epic photo of Jordan.

cigar jordan 6 Jordan Brand Blends DMP with Premio for the Air Jordan 6 Cigar

The championship status of the Air Jordan 6 is one that we’ve seen referenced before by Jordan Brand by way of the “DMP” pack that paired it with a similarly colored Air Jordan 11. They’ll be going down that road once again in 2014 with the Air Jordan 6 “Cigar”, a shoe that also has a bit of that Premio feel thanks to the crisp brown leather used – which is just a few shades lighter than the chocolatey tones utilized on the Air Jordan 2 Bin23. Continue reading to get a complete look at the shoes and watch for a release date on this championship tribute Air Jordan courtesy of Sneaker News.

Air Jordan 6 Retro “Champagne” + “Cigar”

Later this year, Jordan Brand will celebrate Michael Jordan’s first NBA Championship with two styles of the Air Jordan 6. The significance of the shoe model is rather obvious, as its the sixth model that Michael wore during that ’91 Finals, but the “Champagne” and “Cigar” concept might be a bit questionable to a few. As part of his celebration, Michael lit up a cigar and doused his teammates and himself with some champagne, but more importantly, it was  a start of an unbreakable dynasty that dominated the entire 90s. Check out another look at both below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for release dates and info for these, and let us know which of the two you like more.

Air Jordan 6 “Champagne and Cigars”

March 19th, 2014 by | 29 comments

The Air Jordan 6 was Michael Jordan’s first ever championship sneaker, so it only makes sense that the shoes be outfitted with some special makeups referencing that first ring-acquisition. This summer we’ll be treated to two pairs of that sort: the Air Jordan 6 “Champagne Bottle” and the Air Jordan 6 “Championship Cigar”. The models push things pretty far away from the OG materials between the shiny green surface on the former and the crisp brown leather on the latter. Continue reading for another peek at each and keep your fingers crossed that we get some release info soon.

Air Jordan 6 “Champagne Bottle”

March 18th, 2014 by | 60 comments

Accompanying the Air Jordan 6 “Championship Cigar” is the Air Jordan 6 “Champagne Bottle”. The sneaker was apparently designed as a reference to that celebratory bit of imbibing that so often follows a successful post-season bid (Just search “Michael Jordan” and “champagne” for a bit of history on how often MJ got to enjoy that ceremony). Champagne colored sneakers are usually dominated with gold tones of course, but this particular pair more references the green bottle holding the liquid than anything. Get another peek at the “Champagne Bottle” Air Jordan VI with us after the break and stay tuned with us for a Jordan release date on this pair.

cigar jordans retro Championship Cigar Air Jordan 6 Retro

Michael won his first NBA Championship in the Summer of 1991 and celebrated in style; he cradled the trophy while immersed in his own tears of joy, splashed champagne around and on his compatriots, and lit up a cigar while calming down from the hoopla. That would be focus of this upcoming premium release of the Air Jordan 6; the rich brown upper is a clear nod to the outer casing of the celebratory mouthpieces, while the red accents exude that level of success that MJ got so accustomed to for the rest of his career. A release date for these Jordans hasn’t been set, but you can expect them during the Summer months with a higher price-tag. Your thoughts on these upcoming Jordans? Let us know below.
