The Grey Air Of Jordan 6 Rings

Cool grey. It has been a popular colorway used on Nike shoes for basketball these days. Nike just can't seem to drop enough basketball kicks in the cool grey colorway. From Air Jordans to Nike's signature sneaker lines, cool grey colored kicks are popping up everywhere. The cool grey Air Jordan Retro 11's that released last December represented the pinnacle of the cool grey colorway releases. This colorway may be here to stay for awhile. Fine by me! Keep bringing 'em!

The Jordan 6 Rings certainly had it's 15 minutes fame in the cool grey days. Released last September , the "Rings" was dropped in an all grey colorway for the first time ever. The leather upper was done up in cool grey with the midsole sporting a light graphite color. Don't forget about the fuzzy tongue Jumpman logo. It, along with the laces are a light grahite as well. Finish the shoe off with a clear, icy outsole. But wait, we are not done. The cool grey upper is made of 3M material and glows in the dark. Pretty cool huh? Well maybe that is the elementary school kid coming out in me. Still cool though, unless you only like Retros.

So, how do the cool grey 6 Rings compare to the most popular cool grey colorway of them all, the Jordan Retro 11? Well, let's start with the sole. Both pairs come equipped with an icy sole. Sweet! Now, the midsole. Both are identical in color and design. The upper is also the same due to the fact that the 6 Rings uses the same upper that is featured on the Retro 11. Both shoes use the classic striped pattern upper. Obviously, the colorway on both shoes is the same. Both shoes are identical. Right? Of course not, the toe box and lower parts of the upper on the 11 use patent leather while the 6 Rings uses leather throughout the upper. Small difference, right? Wrong. The patent leather used on all of the colorways of the Jordan 11 is what truly makes this shoe a classic.

As is the case with any pair of Air Jordans, the best sneaker in the line is going to come down to personal preference. The cool grey Jordan 11's are dope. There is no doubt about it. A true classic. But the cool grey Jordan 6 Rings can hold their own in the world of cool grey kicks. After all, this shoe combines some of the best elements ever built into Air Jordan's.

Sneakerheads live in an era in whick there are plenty of Jordan shoes for basektball. Each month brings the promise of a dope Jordan drop. If that drop happens to be in a fresh cool grey colorway, I am in!
