Who should NOT buy it

Jordan 6 Rings' inception

The Jordan 6 Rings was a sneaker that combined all the shoes MJ used at the peak of his career. Launched in 2008, 20 years after his retirement as a Chicago Bulls player, the Jordan 6 Rings release date celebrated his and his team's NBA championship triumphs in 1991-1993 and 1996-1998.

Air Jordan enthusiasts will readily detect the Jordan XI's and XIII's influence in the design of this shoe. The former shares its classy look with the addition of patent leather and ribbed mesh upper, while the latter gives it a somewhat aggressive appearance with its sole that resembles a panther's paw.

The detailing borrowed from other AJ models, although subtle, made this shoe even more attractive. Its lace locks and heel loops were acquired from the Jordan VI; the Huarache style sockliner was taken from the VII, while its fuzzy tongue logo, Phylon Zoom Air, and Velcro strap all came from the Air Jordan VIII. To complete its look, it also adopted the XII's "TWO3 logo" stitching on the tongue as well as the XIV's "Jumpman" logo at the bottom of the tongue.
