Spike Lee has made tremendous contributions to cinema and those honors finally got acknowledged in November 2015 with the biggest honor the film industry had to offer, an honorary Oscar award. Of, course, Spike has always had quite a special relationship with Jordan Brand, having served as a source of inspiration for one of Jordan Brand’s most noteworthy models, the Spizike. Thus, it was not surprising that Jordan Brand whipped up a special pair of sneakers for him that had the potential of becoming the highlight of the occasion. While the Air Jordan 6 PE “Oscars” have never hit the shelves, a similar iteration might be on its way.
Spike Lee himself was the first to share a photo of the Air Jordan 6 PE “Oscars” the moment he had received it, which he had posted on his Instagram account. At some point later, Spike was also spotted laced up in the pair at specific events, such as when he attended last year’s NBA All-Star Weekend and present through the scheduled events, seated courtside. Likely with Spike’s permission, TheCollectionMiami.com had even managed to take detailed photos of the pair and no doubt, the upcoming Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle “Metallic Gold” does look quite alike.
Marqueesole.com recently shared never-before-seen photos of an Air Jordan 6 that is reportedly a Pinnacle edition and looks astonishingly similar to the PE “Oscars” as can be seen in the featured photos. It is also being reported, that this Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle will be one of Jordan Brand’s Holiday 2016 Air Jordan release date. Since it resembles the PE “Oscars,” this Air Jordan 6 Pinnacle also has uppers that almost entirely covered in lustrous Metallic Gold, while its Beige-colored laces almost blend in with those uppers. However, White also makes an appearance and it is also equipped with icy outsoles.
As mentioned, this Air Jordan 6 “Pinnacle” will like makes its way to retailers later this year during the Holiday Season. So, sneakerheads will have to wait and keep checking back.
