However, this new pair ditches the mismatched color blocking in favor of a more traditional, uniform pair. Gold patent leather is used on the heel and toe box, while black patent leather can be seen on the toe, eyelets, ankle collar, and medial side panels. White hits come in the form of white leather on the lateral side panels and a white midsole.

 The Air Jordan 6 Flight Jacket is an New Air Jordan 6 release that appears to be inspired by Michael Jordan's 1991 appearance on Saturday Night Live (SNL). During his monologue, Jordan came out wearing a quilted bomber jacket dressed in Olive Green. As a nod to MJ's first appearance on SNL, Jordan Brand will be releasing a very limited Air Jordan 6. This Air Jordan 6 comes dressed in Olive Green and Black. Through the uppers we have nylon which is said to be water proof. The highlight is the use of quilted stitching which lands on the panels. Following is the use of Black which accents the heel, tongue and midsole. Completing the look is a translucent outsole. Inspired by the bomber Michael Jordan wore on SNL in the early 90's, the olive green and sage Air Jordan 6 will feature a nylon upper alongside quilted side panels. Solid tones hit the upper with sage green laces and a black liners.

This Air Jordan 6 comes constructed in quilted, nylon that also offers water resistance. The quilted pattern appears on the sides that adds for a nice premium touch. An Olive Green midsole, Black detailing throughout and an icy outsole completes the design. No word yet on if they'll come with a matching bomber jacket like the one MJ wore on SNL.

The special accents include quilted mid paneling that gives the pair even more texture.

Accented by black, just like MJ's piece, this sneaker sits atop an icy outsole.
