Introduced in 2011, the Jordan 6-17-23 is a hybrid model comprised of elements pulled from Air Jordan models 6 and 17. The numbers add up to make 23, the defining number of Michael Jordan's career.

Early next month, the 6-17-23 will make its return in a brand new 'Infrared' colorway. Likely brought back as part of the Jordan 6's 23rd Anniversary celebration, the shoe sports a white leather upper with black on the tongue, laces and inner lining. Infrared 23 pops off the tongue, pull-tab and speckled midsole, which sits atop an icy translucent outsole.

The 'Infrared' 6-17-23 will hit retail on Saturday, April 5 for $150. Gradeschool sizes will also be available. Enjoy this first look courtesy of Hall of Famer and longtime Jordan Brand member Warren Sapp.
