Between borrowing colorways and re-releasing old favorites, the recent history of the Air Jordan 6 has been deeply engrained in Jordan Brand heritage. Its newest is no different, as this just-announced Air Jordan 6 “Aqua” does its best impersonation of an original Air Jordan 8 colorway in celebration of the latter’s 30th anniversary.
Like the OG Air Jordan 8 of the same name, the pair will feature an all-black nubuck base, with accents of Bright Concord and Aquatone flushed throughout the midsole, branding, and rear clip.
A first look at the pair now confirms this; an almost spot-on to our original mock-up above, with purple tongue embroidery and rear clip detail the only difference.
The Air Jordan 6 "Aqua" will be released on October 9th, 2023 in full-family sizing.
