Drizzy took to the ‘gram last night to showcase his new collab with Jordan Brand — the “6IX Year” 8’s, which he wore/premiered at OVO Fest. These are the best looks of the shoe’s white and black colorways thus far, with the latter one below being the sharpest and my favorite. Hopefully these are made for some sort of general release down the line.
With all the hoopla surrounding yesterday’s Meek Mill Drake “diss”, you may have missed the announcement of the hotly anticipated OVO Air Jordan X and when you can get it.
The official images were leaked off Nike’s servers earlier this week and can be seen in the gallery above. Also: all the fresh new OVO gear that you can get at this weekend’s OVO Fest in Toronto (ya know, if you’re not at Lollapalooza…)
Take a look!
Drizzy continues to stunt on Instagram with his custom OVO Jordans. This one above is different from the rest because of the all gold everything + a never before seen detail of ‘6 I X’ on the tongue of this AJ3s. At this point, it looks like all these Js are exclusive to Drake, so I’m no longer anticipating a wide release. Jumpman should get on it though, these iterations will sell with Yeezy type buzz (a tier below that, IMHO). Discuss ICYMI: Drake x Lil Wayne OVO Retro IIIs: Tour Edition
The Jordan x OVO samples keep coming and the latest to leak to the interwebs is the version of the 4s. I agree with a comment I saw that said if the grey was black, this would look better. That said, I do enjoy all these black/gold colorways of classic Jordan retros. I wonder what’s next… and moreso if we’ll ever get a chance to buy ’em.
It looks like Drake‘s not stopping with the OVO Jordans. First his 12s and 10s, now the 6s as these images were released today of both the rendering and the physical. The sharp black/gold colorway should go as no surprise given the color scheme of the OVO Brand. I dig the owl’s appearance as well… can’t go wrong here at all.
I should emphasize: awaiting confirmation from Drake/OVO/Jordan on if the “Drake OVO Air Jordan 6 Black/Gold” is in fact real/hopefully on sale at some point.
But this on top of tonight’s double track “0 to 100 / Catch Up”.
h/t The Shoe Game
Drake‘s OVO Jordans are the new hottest shoe we can’t have. And that unofficial trophy (no pun intended) is only more warranted after October’s Very Own & Jordan Brand finally released some official images.
Browse the gallery above for the Jordan X and Jordan XII OVO versions. The black and white colorways are branded with the ‘OVO’ and ‘owl’ logos. I don’t really have anything to critique on these, design-wise. All four colorways are so clean. I especially like the balance of leather on the black colorways.
Where I would like to critique these is availability-wise. Complex says that the shoes are only limited to Drake and his OVO camp so we can only rely on prayers to find a way to get ’em on our feet. Or maybe get an invite from OVO… but I guess it’s no new friends
One more notable from “Drake Night” — you see, Drizzy gave away two pairs to random fans at the Raptors game the other night, and to no one’s surprise, they’re on eBay, unworn and relaxing on a $100K bid right now. Hey, that’s good for the buzz though. And the more I see this black colorway, the more I dig it. The inside of the tongue is a new detail I especially like. I would easily outbid this $100K for ’em too (you know, if I um, had, 100K to spend on shoes).
UPDATE: The white OVO Jordans also went up on eBay and can be currently had a little cheaper. Emphasis on a little. The current bid is at $99,900. Place your bid View more raw pics on eBay of the white colorway here.
