Despite his retirement from the NBA in April 2003, Michael Jordan continues to make an impact on basketball. Over the past 18 years, the Chicago Bulls legend has extended his reach beyond hardwood, spreading his winning spirit into baseball, soccer, golf and other highly competitive sports with the help from a list of athletes including Derek Jeter, Randy Moss and Keegan Bradley. Recently, special editions of the Air Jordan 6 were unveiled by affiliate NIKE, Inc. to celebrate the talented individuals who have helped develop the legacy of the Jumpman.
Housed in a high-quality wooden box complemented by gold hardware, the three Player-Exclusive (PE) colourways feature luxurious versions of the sneaker in which # 23 won his first NBA title. Premium nubuck construction on the upper of each pair offers a greyish navy blue, emerald green, or magenta-like purple that hasn’t been seen much on the Air Jordan line. In addition to their supportive tones, the exclusive styles are accented with shimmering gold details which further promote the feeling of luxury. Special graphics and a lettering system inspired by the Greek alphabet also appear on the Jordans, indicating the specific sport played by their respective owners. It’s highly unlikely that Luka DonÄiÄ, Zion Williamson or Jayson Tatum – who would be ânextâ in Jordan Brand’s plans for a signature sneaker – will lace the kicks for a match, but PEs could appear to be part of the game. ‘a tunnel’ fit. What is certain, however, is that every athlete who has received a pair has put in countless efforts to be associated with one of the greatest athletes of all time.
