Share This Page: Air Jordan 6-17-23 - Gym Red This year has proved to be the year of the Air Jordan 6 and rightly so, considering the iconic model is turning 23 years old. Although 23 seems like a strange anniversary to celebrate, it makes perfect sense to Michael Jordan fans, who recognize it as Jordan's jersey number. Nike took the numeric symbolism even further with the Jordan 6-17-23, a shoe created by mixing the DNA of the Air Jordan 6 and the Air Jordan 17, adding up to a shoe that literally means 23. The pronounced Porsche-inspired pull tab and ankle padding of the AJ 6 looks right at home on the body of the AJ 17. A smooth crimson upper with mesh panels is accented by shiny black on the midfoot plate and eyelets. A black speckled white midsole rides atop an icy blue outsole, which helps to bring down the intense heat on this kick. Taken together, it's hard to deny the Chicago Bulls' style on this basketball sneaker. These beauties drop Saturday, June 7, at $150 for men and at $110 for grade schoolers.
