Last summer, we imagined 10 future Air Jordan retro colorways based on moments from Michael Jordan's life. Among them was an Air Jordan 6 inspired by Jordan's 1991 appearance on Saturday Night Live, specifically drawing cues from the quilted green bomber jacket he wore during his monologue.

 

Proving that we're geniuses here at Sole Collector, it looks like that SNL-themed Jordan 6 may soon become a reality. Early images of a quilted, nylon green pair, similar to Jordan's jacket, just hit the internet. No markings visible in the leaks confirm the inspiration, and flight has been a theme in the line since Day 1, but the connection is there to make.

This pair is clearly still in the production phase, so there's not a confirmed release date at the moment. We'll continue to keep you updated as more details emerge.
