  The Jordan 6 Rings incorporates key features from each shoe that MJ wore while stacking up the Championship rings for the Chicago Bulls.

The midsole, a full-length Phylon™ unit with Zoom Air™ in the heel and forefoot, was inspired by the Jordan XIII.

The outsole is a combination of solid and clear rubber, which created performance traction with superior style. Wt. 14.8 oz.

As popular and renowned as Michael Jordan was, his Air Jordan brand became at least as popular. To commemorate one of the greatest to ever play the game, Nike created a unique hybrid basketball shoe, the Jordan 6 Rings.

 

The 6 Rings combined key features from the six signature shoes Michael Jordan wore during his championship seasons: the Jordan VI, VII, VIII, XI, XII, and XIII.

 

The Jordan 6 Rings featured the lacelock and heel loop from the Jordan VI, a huarache-style inner sock from the Jordan VII, a fuzzy tongue logo from the Jordan VIII, an upper silhouette from the Jordan XI, the "TWO3" script on the tongue and metal lace loops from the Jordan XII, and a full-length Phylon unit with Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot from the Jordan XIII.

 

Shoe paints picture worth a thousand words

 

The combination of six Air Jordan sneakers was indeed an impressive feat by Nike. However, it was the unique colorways and detailing on the “Championship Package” that really made this shoe what it was.

 

This package was a collection of six shoes, five with a colorway specific to the team the Bulls defeated in the finals (the Bulls defeated the Jazz twice in the finals), and one culminating shoe that combined the five, team-specific styles. The Bulls beat the Lakers, then the Blazers, Suns, Supersonics, and the Jazz twice. Each shoe not only featured a colorway of the team the Bulls defeated but also had personal detailing that conveyed plenty of messages.

 

Here are a few of the many graphics found on the shoes:

• The Lakers colorway featured a top hat and wand, representing Lakers star Magic Johnson.

• The Blazers colorway featured a silhouette of Jordan’s famous shoulder shrug after making an NBA-record sixth 3-pointer in the first half.

• The Suns colorway featured a hand on the side of the shoe holding up three fingers representing Jordan’s third championship.

• The Supersonics colorway featured a hand with the words “The Glove” printed on it, representing the nickname of Supersonics guard Gary Payton.

• The Jazz colorway featured graphics of an envelope and a mailbox, representing “The Mailman” nickname of Jazz forward Karl Malone.

 

Uppers draw of era of greatness

 

This hybrid sneaker did not borrow the features of the upper material from any Jordan sneak in particular, as most Air Jordans featured a leather upper. The upper in the 6-Rings featured leather, synthetic leather, and engineered mesh.

 

Other features included the following:

• Men’s sizes 7-14, 15, 16, 17, 18

• Widths: D-medium

• Scheduled colorway releases:

  - Black/medium grey/white (September 2011)

• Silhouette from the Jordan XI

• "TWO3" script on the tongue and metal lace loops from the Jordan XII

• Full-length Phylon unit with Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot from the Jordan XIII

• Combination of solid and clear rubber on the outsole, which created performance traction with superior style
