The Air Jordan 6 Donda West by Ye is Being Auctioned Off

— September 28, 2022 — Lifestyle
Rapper Ye is a long-time partner to adidas Originals and he had created a special Donda West colorway of the Air Jordan 6 sneaker model that had never been released to the public before. It celebrates the life of his mother, who passed in 2007. In terms of the design, it is detailed with intricate rose emblems that are lasered onto the shoe all over the overlaying details, the heel sections, and the toe boxes.

Rose graphics follow as it is applied through embroidery on the heels and tongues of the shoe. Donda's moniker and lyrics from the song 'Roses' are seen detailing the insoles -- the shoe is now being auctioned off as 4 of 6 pairs were originally put in prodcution.
