It’s not exactly the cause for all this white-on-white celebrating, but the 20th anniversary of Michael Jordan’s first NBA championship is coming up soon. This June marks 19 years since ‘a spectacular move’ captured the nation’s imagination and started the most dominant dynasty since Bill Russell’s Boston Celtics. So how to commemorate such a momentous occasion? Simple. Take the shoe that MJ wore en route to the chip and color it up in the palette of the vanquished opponent. That’s the idea behind the Air Jordan VI (6) Retro ‘Lakers’, whose tri-colored stitching adds some nice depth to an otherwise black design. These are set to drop at retailers around the country a couple Saturdays from now on May 15th, but you can already grab yours from JBseller on eBay.
