The Air Jordan 6 colorway initially believed to be inspired by Jimmy Butler will join this month’s Air Jordan releases 2018 before Christmas. Two months ago, the Air Jordan 6 was a part of Jordan Brand’s “Tinker Series” of Air Jordan Retro releases. This particular colorway drew inspiration from the Air Trainer SC II High that Tinker Hatfield designed back in 1991. It was dressed up in a combination of “White/Infrared 23–Neutral Grey–Obsidian.” This Air Jordan 6 “Tinker” made its retail debut on October 6th, 2018 at a price of $190. The upcoming Air Jordan 6 colorway you see here is dubbed “Diffused Blue.”

Does The Air Jordan 6 “Diffused Blue” Actually Draw Inspiration From Jimmy Butler?
As of now, it is uncertain if the Air Jordan 6 “Diffused Blue” is inspired by Jimmy Butler, but its color scheme does seem to resemble that of the Minessota Timberwolves. Jimmy Butler played for the Timberwolves between 2017 and2018. This colorway gets its nickname from the Diffused Blue hue that covers its entire leather and suede uppers. A lighter Court Blue hue can be spotted over the branding, heel loops, lace locks and midsoles. It is also equipped with icy, translucent outsoles and its inner tongues have “1991” embroidered on them. This colorway will be a part of the Air Jordan releases 2018 arriving later in December.
