Travis Scott recently provided an up-close preview of his Air Jordan 6 colorway that will be among next month’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Travis Scott seems to have been rather busy as of late. He recently teamed up with SZA and The Weeknd to sing a song titled “Power Is Power,” which is essential Jon Snow’s theme song as a part of HBO’s Game of Thrones companion music album. In other (not-so-favorable) news, a court has ordered Travis Scott to pay almost $400,000 to a Minneapolis-based promotion company for a gig he canceled on the day of the Super Bowl LIII.
Reportedly, Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan releases 2019 for this year’s Holiday Season will include a washed denim iteration of the Air Jordan 6. The Air Jordan 6 has received the denim treatment twice before, although unofficially, so neither of those iterations hit the shelves. Of these custom Air Jordan 6 “Ostrich and Denim” designed by JBF Customs back in September 2013. JBF Customs used the Air Jordan 6 “Olympic” to serve as the base for his custom creation. As its nickname likely suggests, its uppers made up of denim and faux ostrich leather. It wasn’t until four years later that another custom, denim Air Jordan 6 iteration was designed.
Jordan Brand’s three upcoming Air Jordan releases are “Reflective” varitions of OG colorways from the Bulls’ first championship three-peat. Starting with the Air Jordan 6 that you can see above, you may have recognized that this “Reflective” is using the OG “Infared” colorway as its base. At the time when the Air Jordan 6 was introduced and Michael Jordan laced up in it, he was on his way towards leading the Chicago Bulls to their first NBA Championship victory. Instead of nearly all-Black, its uppers are now completely reflective. Black still appears over the heels, laces, midsoles and tongues, and the Infrared-colored accents are the same as the original.
