There’s no question that retro releases are Jordan Brand‘s bread and butter, but don’t be so quick to put JB’s hybrid sneakers on the back-burner. The sneaker community has had a love-hate relationship with the Jordan hybrid since they were first introduced, and while some of the models and colorways have been well-received, others…well, not so much.
One of the more popular Jordan hybrids, the Jordan 6 Rings Black/Varsity Red, first released in 2008, and later this month, Jordan Brand is bringing them back once again. With that re-release in mind, we thought it would be a good time to take a look back at some of the most popular Jordan hybrid sneakers to date, as well as some notable celebs who have been spotted wearing them in Celebrity Sneaker Stalker and beyond. Check it out.
Jordan 6 Rings Black/Varsity Red
The Jordan 6 Rings Black/Varsity Red is probably the most polarizing hybrid to date, as many either love them or hate them. The sneaker bears a striking resemblance to the “Playoffs” Air Jordan 11, so while some view them as a lesser version, others are drawn to the smooth patent leather and contrasting color scheme.
Chris Brown was one individual drawn to this sneaker, and Paul Wall liked them so much he even wore them on the No Sleep Til Houston mixtape cover.
