Tracking down OG Air Jordans is one thing, but tracking down prototypes of the originals that never released is a different journey entirely.

Collector Dylan Ratner managed the latter, picking up this alternate take on the Jordan 6 from the early 1990s. The shoe differs most from the retail Air Jordan 6 in its sole, which has a modified shape and appears to lack the translucent treatment.

The sneaker also features slight changes on the upper like a toecap and a different setup for the perforations.

The colorway itself is also a unique one, as nothing like this ever released during this shoe’s original run.
