Original Story (06/24/19): The Air Jordan 6 “Defining Moment” may be making a return next year. This would be the first time since its initial release in 2006 that the shoe would be available and the first time that it would drop as a standalone release. The shoe was originally released as part of the “Defining Moment Pack” (DMP) featuring the Jordan 6 and 11, which celebrated two of Michael Jordan’s championships, 1991 and 1996, both of which were the starts of his three-peats. The 2006 release featured a black nubuck upper with metallic gold accents, and this new release is expected to stay true to the original.

No photos of next year’s version have leaked yet, but for those who have never seen the original release, you can see the official photos from 2006 below. Look for the Air Jordan 6 “Defining Moment” to release on January 25th, 2020. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for more info.
