The BET Awards were held for the sixteenth time this year, just recently on June 26th. The Awards ceremony was already fuming in the summer heat, but the flaming joint performance of the song “All the Way Up” by Fat Joe, French Montana and Remy Ma really set fire to the atmosphere and the stage, metaphorically at least. French Montana handled the rapping, while the microphone was passed to Fat Joe and Remy Ma for the chorus. While Jay Z was spotted nowhere, even though the remix of this song features him, sneakerheads in the audience must have likely noticed the kicks Fat Joe was sporting.

Collectors have probably grown accustomed to the fact that athletes and celebrities, who are associated with Jordan Brand in one way or another, end up receiving kicks that are not yet up for grabs at retailers. Andre Johnson, the NFL athlete and wide receiver who is currently a free agent, also seems to be in the Jumpman’s inner circle. If that was not the case, he would not have received an entire shipment of upcoming Air Jordan releases that have not hit the shelves yet. Unexpectedly enough, the highlight of Andre’s recent Air Jordan haul are two brand new but highly anticipated Air Jordan 8 colorways.

Ever since 2014 when Jordan Brand dropped the Air Jordan 6 “Champagne” and “Cigar,” it has become somewhat of an annual tradition for them to whip up a Championship Pack every year. Over the course of his career, Michael Jordan has scored six NBA championship victories, so it makes sense for the Jumpman to celebrate them with a special pack. Another special thing about Jordan Brand’s “Championship Pack” is that ever since 2014, each year it has in a way celebrated the 23rd anniversary of the silhouette that has been the focus of the pack.

23isBACK.me has been keeping readers up to date on this year’s 23rd Anniversary celebration of Jordan 6, particularly the fact that the model is being rolled out in various new and old colorways. Although there has always been some reason or the other that Air Jordan kicks tend to become iconic, but the most special of them all has always been Jordan 6.
The very first time that Michael Jordan won an NBA Championship, he was wearing an Jordan 6 pair. The “Infrared” colorway had been laced up around the time of the 1991 Finals, back when the Los Angeles Lakers had been defeated by the Bulls. Of course, Michael Jordan went on to win five more Championship rings in his distinguished career.
Along with Champagne, Cigars happened to be a go-to treat for Michael Jordan whenever he won a championship. Michael Jordan certainly enjoys his post-Finals cigars and is famous for lighting up cigars in the locker room every time the Bulls won a championship. So, it should be no secret where the inspiration for Jordan 6 “Cigar” came from. In fact, this special “Cigar” colorway may as well have been created to pay homage Jordan’s past championship victories and his favorite pastime of smoking cigars.
