In celebration of MJ's first NBA title 25 years ago.
Jordan Brand's premium line of "Pinnacle" Air Jordans has been limited to the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 4 silhouettes thus far, but tomorrow we'll be seeing a "Pinnacle" gold version of the Air Jordan 6.
In addition to this gold Air Jordan 6, Jordan Brand will also be releasing a shiny metallic silver "Pinnacle" Air Jordan 1 Low and a bronze pair of slides, all of which honor the 25 year anniversary of Michael Jordan's first NBA title.
Similar to Spike Lee's unique "Oscars" Air Jordan 6, the shiny golden upper is offset by a white midsole, although this "Pinnacle" pair utilizes a white tongue which differs from the Spike Lee joints. A custom Air Jordan hang tag and bag will also be included in the release.
The $250 6s are scheduled to release (in men's sizes only, in-store only) this Saturday, October 22nd, and we already know they'll be just as hard to get your hands on as the other "Pinnacle" Air Jordan releases.
Stores that will have the sneakers in stock will be implementing a raffle system for the release so be sure to check out Foot Locker's Launch Locator to see how your local spots will be handling this weekend's release. As of now it appears as though the only Footaction carrying the Pinnacle "Metallic Gold" Air Jordan 6 is Chicago's 32 South State Street location.
So yeah, this release is going to be LIMITED. With a capital "L."
