What's in a name?

The featured shoe's name, 6-17-23, represents two previously released Jordans—the Jordan 6 and the Jordan 17 (the "23" part is obviously the sum of both numbers). Apart from its combined moniker, the sneaker in question has design influences from both inspirations, the most easily noticeable of which has to be its hybrid outsole.
