It was back in 2006 when Jordan Brand first came up with the idea of dropping an Air Jordan Package, and ultimately, the Defining Moments Package was introduced that very year. That was the first time that Jordan Brand released a package containing two Air Jordan sneakers, as a tribute to the the most defining moments of Michael Jordan’s professional basketball career. The 2006 DMP releases commemorated two of Michael Jordan’s championship victories, namely the one in 1991 and the one in 1996. 2017’s Defining Moments Package will include an Air Jordan 13 and an Air Jordan 14, and sneakerheads can now get a detailed look at the latter.
In 2009, Jordan Brand once again decided to pay tribute to Michael Jordan, which was definitely well-deserved, and so a second Defining Moments Package was released. Back on January 13th, 1993, the Chicago Bulls faced the Orlando Magic, and Michael Jordan led his team to victory, helping them score 64 points. Michael Jordan was laced up in the Air Jordan 7 during that game. Thus, 2009’s DMP releases included two Air Jordan 7 colors, one which was the same as what Michael Jordan wore back in 1993, and the other was dressed up in the colors of the Orlando Magic.
Sneakerheads have likely already seen what the Air Jordan 13 from this year’s Defining Moments Package looks like in full detail. Courtesy of the photos shared by @zsneakerheaz on Instagram, sneakerheads can also get a detailed look at the Air Jordan 14 that is also included. Predominantly, it can be seen that this sneaker has nearly all-Black uppers, but its signature shield branding and some of the detailing over its midsoles are covered in Metallic Gold. The inside of each tongue also features the words “They Can’t Win” and “Until We Quit,” respectively, while a Varsity Red-colored “98” can be spotted over each heel.
2017’s Defining Moments Package is a tribute to the final championship that Michael Jordan helped the Chicago Bulls capture back in 1998. While a precise release date has not been announced or confirmed, it is somewhat certain that this year’s Defining Moments Package will be joining June’s Jordan releases 2017.
