The original Defining Moments Package by Jordan Brand (and the first ever two-pair set in general) consisted of the Air Jordan VI and Air Jordan XI, signifying the two chapters in Michael’s illustrious careers that told the two stories of ‘threepeat beginnings’. And Air Jordan VI/XI hybrid might be stepping out of bounds into the territory of sacrilege, but there are acceptable ways of combining the two, like this great custom pair of sneakers done by LOBE. Structurally, the shoe is entirely ‘Air Jordan VI’, but the colorway is taken straight from the legendary ‘Bred’ of the Air Jordan XI, complete with retreated uppers of patent leather and ballistic mesh (or, close reinterpretations). The Air Jordan VI continues to be the go-to Air Jordan custom model, but can you blame it? Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think!
