The Jordan Jumpman Quick 6 Retro has come back with a name change. It’s now called the Jordan Quick 23.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised that Jumpman series models from my childhood have been getting the Retro treatment over the past few years. While we haven’t been 100% satisfied with the materials or tech specs, we’re at least happy to know that some people at the Jordan Brand have their eyes set on more than just the signature models.
Eddie Jones was one of the very first endorsers for the then-new Brand Jordan and received three signature sneakers. The Jordan Jumpman Quick 6 was his second — it followed a successful launch of the Jumpman Pro Quick — and was well received by fans of the brand.
From what we can tell, not much has changed between the original and the Retro version of the Quick 6. Tech specs even seem to be the same. Materials aren’t identical, and we wouldn’t expect them to be because the leather manufacturing and factories have changed quite a bit since ’98. However, the shoe still feels nice to the touch and on-foot.
The Jordan Jumpman Quick 6, now known as the Jordan Jumpman Quick 23, is available now in two colorways for $125.
Let us know if you’re interested in grabbing a pair for casual or court use and stay tuned for updates on future colorways.
