One of the best Jumpman silhouettes of all time is the Air Jordan 6. As many Michael Jordan fans know, this is the first sneaker he ever won a championship with. Overall, this shoe is sleek and his a unique racecar quality to it. Additionally, it is a sneaker that has been blessed with a plethora of colorways over the years. Fans love this model and they are always going to cop new offerings. That said, it should come as no surprise that 2023 is going to be filled with some new Jordan 6s.

Furthermore, this is going to be a big year for the Air Jordan 8. This model came out two years after the Jordan 6, and is now celebrating its 30th anniversary. Last year, Jordan Brand gave the Jordan 7 a lot of love, and now, it is the 8's turn. Although this model isn't as popular as the Jordan 6, there are some colorways that fans absolutely adore. For instance, there is the "Aqua" offering that Jordan wore during the 1993 All-Star Game. This model is expected to come back at some point, however, it is also going to find itself on some other silhouettes. The Jordan 5 is one of these silhouettes, and as it turns out, the Air Jordan 6 will also get the "Aqua" treatment.
