Set To Drop: Air Jordan Retro 6 ‘DMP’

Back in 2006, Jordan Brand blessed sneakerheads with their first concept of an Air Jordan Package they changed the sneaker landscape forever. The first two-pair package of Air Jordans dropped in January of 2006 and was a tribute to MJ’s greatest moments in his professional career and they were deemed the “Defining Moments Package”. The shoes featured in the packs were the sneakers that were worn by Jordan during the first championship of his two three-peats in 1991 and 1996. The highly coveted pack of the Jordan 6 and Jordan 11 has been touted as two of the best ever but that all depends on who you ask. While these two shoes weren’t exactly like the ones MJ wore during his championship games, Jordan Brand added gold to them respectively in subtle ways to honor the ring and trophy that accompanied the monumental wins. 

Now, fourteen years after the original release sneakerheads are getting blessed with a retro of the ever-popular Jordan 6 that came in the Defining Moments Pack. If you’re a true OG who watched Mike win his first championship in 1991 in the ‘Infrared’ 6 then you know how prestigious that sneaker is. The DMP pair isn’t far behind in its importance in sneaker history with its special gold dog tags that referenced the monumental title. 

Jordan Brand pulled out all the stops for the 2020 release of the Jordan Retro 6 ‘DMP’ and they are also making sure that everyone in the family is able to get a pair by releasing them in full family sizing. Coming with the OG Gold dog tag matching Black and Gold back this Retro is made to match its original predecessor. The clean color scheme of Black and Metallic gold is the definition of luxurious this pair is just like the OG and features a Black Nubuck upper that is complemented by Metallic Gold on the midsole, heel tab and Jumpman on the tongue. It doesn’t get any better than this. You’ll definitely take your collection up a notch when you add these to your rotation. 

The Air Jordan 6 ‘Defining Moments’ is available Saturday, April 18, 2020, online at DTLR.com
