Music to your ears? Sneaker News have you an Exclusive look at the Carmine colorway of the Air Jordan 6-17-23, the hybrid shoe that combined the Air Jordan VI with the Air Jordan XVII. A closer look at the tongue reveals the musical notes taken from Air Jordan XVII – the shoe was in fact inspired partly by jazz music -as well as the ribbed fabric from the tongue. Unfortunately many of our readers did not see eye-to-eye with the design of the 6-17-23 but with so many Air Jordan Retros occupying our attention, perhaps this second look might incite some positive response. The idea of combining two signature models totaling ’23’ is surely interesting and quite challenging at the same time, and if Jordan Brand chooses to continue forward with this concept, we can only anticipate what else might result. Take another look at the Air Jordan 6-17-23 ‘Carmine’ after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for more Jordan Brand exclusives and updates. via in52.
