The Air Jordan 6 Retro “Georgetown” Goes Back to SchoolPublished:
August 30, 2022
Over the years, Jordan Brand has been known to gift player-exclusive (P.E.) sneakers to the players and staff of the brand’s affiliate universities, such as the University of Oregon and the University of North Carolina. As a result, these P.E.s are hyper-rare and sought after. And while they’re handed out and not sold, these pairs often find their way onto the secondary market regardless and fetch astronomical prices when they do.
Lately, Jordan has made it a point of emphasis to create general releases that mimic these player-exclusive models – one of which, the Air Jordan 6 “Georgetown,” is slated to drop in early September.
Inspired by the Georgetown Hoyas and their Air Jordan 6 P.E., this upcoming release comes covered a premium “Magnet” grey–colored suede, like the aforementioned player-exclusive. What’s different, however, is the lack of Georgetown Hoyas branding. Instead, this release features embroidered Jumpman logos at the heels and on the lace shrouds.
Foam midsole units are given a grey and “College Navy” paintjob, while the outsoles are done in an icy, semi-translucent rubber.
Want to get your hands on a pair? The Air Jordan 6 “Georgetown” will be available on DTLR.com and in DTLR stores on September 3rd in men’s and grade-school sizes.
