Are you really getting anywhere if you’re driving in circles? Although sales numbers and profits grow year after year, the Air Jordan Retro may tire itself out if it continues at this speedy pace. In 2006, Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan Spiz’ike, a hybrid shoe tangential of the Air Jordan Legacy with almost as much success as one of the originals, which was somewhat of a breakthrough for Jordan Brand since some consider a hybrid shoe a sacrilege to the holy entity that is the Air Jordan Legacy. For 2011, a few more feathers will be ruffled with the release of the Air Jordan 6-17-23, a combination of two Air Jordan numbered models totaling the Jersey number Jordan wore throughout his career. Sneaker News already showed you a ‘Carmine’ colorway, hut here’s a look at another popular trademark color-combination taken after the Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’. A black upper is combined with Concord purple with Orion Blue on the midsole with a translucent outsole and grey accents. Now it’s your time chime in; an ingenious idea with a sick colorway, or a complete abomination? These are definitely for the open-minded Jordan fan so check out the gallery of images after the jump and let us know your thoughts. via taobao.
