With just under six months left in the year, handfuls of Air Jordan releases for 2023 have already been rumored and showcased either in mock-ups or extremely early images.
Recently, an Air Jordan 6 “Cool Grey” joined the mix, demonstrating the NIKE, Inc.-owned imprint’s self-referential tendency. Retail versions of the product may differ from unauthorized sketches of the pair, but the retro is expected to don a “White/Medium Grey/Cool Grey” mix borrowed from 2001’s Air Jordan 11 “Cool Grey,” a sneaker last seen in 2021. According to reliable sneaker rumor sources, the shoes follow a similar color-blocking arrangement as the original “Carmine” pair, with smooth “White” leather making up most of the upper. Softer fabric, then, enters the mix at the toe and across profile underlays with the Jumpman-branded shroud at the tongue also following suit. Sports car-inspired tops of the tongue and clips at the heel indulge in a varying shade of grey, but match the detailing across the midsole (and presumably the outsole). Lastly, semi-translucent traction zones underfoot deliver an icy blue finish that promises freshness for years to come.
Enjoy an initial mock-up of the retro ahead, courtesy of Instagram user @zSneakerHeadz, as you wait for official images and Nike SNKRS release details as February 4th, 2023 inches closer.
Elsewhere under the Jumpman umbrella, the Jordan Luka 1 is expected to debut stateside soon.
