While Air Jordan brand has recently shown a focused interest in broadening its lifestyle silhouettes through the Jordan Series, Delta 3, and Granville Pro, 2008 saw the birth of such a movement 20 years after MJ’s second retirement with the Jordan 6 Rings. The silhouette is now wearing Jumpman’s “Cool Grey” hue to mark its 15th year in rotation.
Style is subjective, but this shoe is undeniably fashionable
The Air Jordan 11’s familiar near-clad greyscale scheme instead plays a favorable accent to the crisp white tooling of its tongue, quarter, leather overlays, and heel counter, having clothed the pair in the full gamut of the brand’s fundamental tonal costumes. Along the model’s gleaming patent leather panel, “Cool Grey” contrasts can be found on the lace lock, chenille tongue tab, and the embroidered Jumpman on the heel counter. The Air Jordan 13’s lined grey tread and a neon green holographic panther eye are the finishing touches that fill off the style. Underfoot, a solid white midsole pairs with these two elements to create the silhouette’s finishing touches.
The “Cool Grey” is an appealing take on the Jumpman silhouette, demonstrating how tone schemes can frequently stand out beautifully without the need of a lot of brightness. Of course, given the hybrid nature of these Jordan 6 Rings, it’s easy to imagine them functioning well off the court as well!
