Our verdict

Seven iconic Air Jordan kicks were fused into one to create the well-known Jordan 6 Rings. This hybrid kick perfectly represents Jordan's history, specifically MJ's and his team, the Chicago Bulls' six NBA championships. While it is sold as a lifestyle sneaker, we found that it remains a hoop shoe through and through like its ancestors. Responsive, supportive, durable, and comfortable, we commend it for its performance on the streets and hardcourt.

Who should NOT buy it

Because of its tall collar height and the glove-like lining, this sneaker feels tricky to put on. Check out the cosy Air Jordan 4 Retro or the Air Jordan 1 Low for your alternative options.

Jordan 6 Rings: Big in comfort and style

We tried wearing this as a lifestyle sneaker with denim, sweats, and shorts, the Jordan 6 Rings and it did not fail to impress us with its exceptional step-in comfort, fitting for the streets and on the court. It has springy cushioning and ample padding that keeps our feet comfy and protected even when we wear it for hours.

Keeps the foot in place

This sneaker keeps our feet snugly secured without necessitating us to tie the shoelaces. Thanks to its Huarache-like lining that perfectly covers the foot like a sock, we don't need to worry about slinging our shoe when we've got loose laces.

Two thumbs up when it comes to style

We are amazed how this sneaker looks even more stylish in real life than in the photos. The Jordan 6 Rings look fashionable on feet whether we are in or out of the court. Built with a chunky silhouette that effectively highlights the best parts of the seven shoes that the famous Jordan wore in his prime, we love that it remains stylish, elegant, and at the same time bold.

Inarguably distinctive

Released in a wide array of eye-catching hues, the Jordan 6 Rings has a shiny leather overlay and a rugged sole. We realised that these features enhance the overall durability while adding a unique casual appeal. Also, it has small yet attractive accents, such as the woolly "Jumpman" logo and "TWO3" stitching on the tongue, as well as the "Jumpman" emblem on the front, which we found to make this pair more attractive.

Excellent traction

The outsole that mixes solid and translucent rubber improves its aesthetics and increases its traction performance. This detail reliably keeps us on our feet on dry cement, wet tiles, and asphalt pavement.

Noteworthy durability

Thanks to its premium make and top-notch quality materials, we are able to enjoy this pair longer than our usual basketball sneakers. We did not notice any visible wear after donning this pair countless times.

Its mid-top collar height hugs our ankles securely while providing us with ample cushioning. We found this suitable for quick movements on and off the hardcourts.

Worth its price!

Despite its hefty price tag, around 20% higher than the average Jordan sneakers, we believe the Jordan 6 Rings sneaker is a good buy considering its quality and robustness.

Breezy upkeep

Despite creasing quickly, we enjoy its shiny leather upper that we learned is easy to clean and to maintain spotless for a long period.

Chunky yet light on feet

Worry not about its weight, as we deemed this model as one of the light iterations of the Jordan lineup.

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.
