In Retrospect: Air Jordan 6/11 Defining Moments Pack


In Retrospect: Air Jordan 6/11 Defining Moments Pack

Five years ago today Jordan Brand released their first and arguably best package. The Air Jordan 6/11 Defining Moments Package combined two of the most iconic Air Jordans in a prestigious manner. The Air Jordan 11 “Concord” was classed up with gold accents on the branding while the Air Jordan 6 was dressed in black nubuck with gold highlights. Servers crashed and lines were long as many capitalized on the chance to get two one-of-a-kind Jordans while many more left empty handed. Now that five years have passed and the Air Jordan 11 “Concord” is on its way back, what are your thoughts on the original DMP? Were you able to get them? Are you happy with your decision to purchase or pass? Tell your DMP stories in the comment section.

    • What concords are you talking about? There is no concord purple anywhere on the XI’s. People (including the writer of the article) needs to stop referring to DMP XI’s as concords. Seriously.

  1. WHAEN THESE DROP 5 YRS AGO MY WIFE JUST GAVE BIRTH SO @ 3:30 AM I PUSHED MY DAUGTHER DOWN TO THE NURSERY AND WENT AND STOOD IN LINE THIS PACK IS ,Y ALL TIME FAV

  2. yeah 11s are trash everbody be panhandlin the 6s way colder im tired of jordan bringin out the same garbage for christmas, but yeah i got em i stayed up all night doin beak i made sure i got them boys i still got em lookin crisp

  3. This is what they should drop at the end of this year. Trust im more than happy that the 11′s are coming back out. but its always been major heat that comes out at the end of the year so why not these??

  4. I must have been the luckiest with these bc I missed the pack and only wanted the 6′s. While working for nike clearance and we received the 6′s and the leather dmp jacket! If I told you what I paid for both you would call me a liar! I even kept the reciept.

  5. all this slander for the 11s?!?! those are top 5 Jordan shoes ever. all the CWs are EPIC. I only have the ‘laker’ 6s, but i woulda copped these

  6. I traded a pair of nds supreme lows for a Ds dmp and they are sitting happily in storage and are only wore during the summer.

  7. Those 6′s are fire, I like em as much as the 11′s in this pack. I heard quality coulda been better on the 11s in this pack though.

  8. That day it was crazy i was able to buy 4DMP packs,plus the next week my local champs got more in and it happen to be the pack that had the gold jordan writing on the 6

  9. I copped as A Bday Gift to Myself wasn’t Able To Copp in Ga Had to Have my Sneaker connect from North arolina Purchase & Ship a Pair To Me. I Messed Up My xis when I was a Senior I dropped Blue Paint on Them in Art class, & My first year of College Someone Stole My 6s But overall I’m Glad I Copped & I’m Looking to Purchase another Pair Soon No matter The Price…

  10. I did get a pair of the DMP and haven’t worn then yet. Great package but now the 11s are coming back out, will the DMP be worth it now?

  11. $295? I WISH. Ended up paying double that (still not bad considering what they go for these days) but even the weather was jealous because it was supposed to be sunny the entire weekend but rained after I left the house for BOTH pair. Ruined my 6′s more than 11′s but still a sad day

  12. The DMPs are the best pack ever. I am the proud owner of a set. I actually keep them in a lil glass case I bought from Ikea. If someone really offered some stupid price id sell. I say stupid because I used to goto a shoe store in SF that sells a package for 1100. Realistically, ill never sell these and look forward to rocking them in 5-10 years!!

  13. those 6′s and 11′s were the only J’s to actually look good when the icy soles turned yellow, they matched the gold accents pretty well. I will never regret buying this pack, wearing them, and then selling them once they were well worn for still more than what i bought them for. Worth ever penny and worth every minute waiting in the freezing cold for them

  14. I bought two pairs one for me and one for my best friend. They are still in the box size 9, for the right price I might let them go!!

  15. i got a apir from NEWARK NJ .. times got hard and sold my xi’s for $550 and i was holding on to da 6′s but then i sold them too …………………. gguuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr im mad !!!! but o well

  16. I got the dmp deadstock from my dude in my size 11.5 both pair for $250. He was hurting I wasn’t hands down my best sneaker come up ever. I love em both and rarely wear em. This is the best pack jb ever dropped and ever will.

  17. I haven’t seen this pack in person nor the actuall concord in person. But are these Dmp XI’s really concord? I hear they’re really not the same. Idk I always wondered, either way, I would like this pack, would be a good part of my collection. Wasnt in the kick game back then.. So copping wasn’t a option. Too busy buying chronic, and getting chicks. Lol

  18. I got in a car accident in a snow storm to get a second package, got to my local mom and pop spot and they ain’t have my size so I copped them for my girl, I already had one other package in route from eastbay so I was good. Might be one of the craziest buy

  19. these right here are the best DMP ever.i feel you guys though 5 years i was a broke man in high school i didnt no nothing about DMP plus $ 200 plus dollas back then was a lot of money no way my parents gon spend that money. in today era we spend $ 200 plus on a sneakers like it nothing

  20. shiiiiiii* i waited 18 hours in timessquare footlooker my first camp out at 15 years old shiiiii*** cold ass fuck tht day till this day i havent worn thm besides the 11s for my graduation those were the good days

  21. i remember JB did a recall on some because they came out with a coupe hundred pairs with gold lettering on the side but the gold was bleeding on the mesh those were going for 1,000 in NYC.

  22. ooo i got mines but mines yellowed on the bottom : (
    my ex worked at finished line and we went to concord sunvally mall and took the secret employee entrance. nobody was in da mall but me my ex her friend and four other people and the whole mall only had a fell boxes so it was super limited. at the end i had to get a police escort to my car because the people camping out in the front was starting to riot.lol

  23. @yadabing- they are called “concord” because of the concord on the bottom of the shoe. Get ya sneaker knowledge up son!

  24. any1 who has a ds pair of the DMP pack hit me on iss: kill@kickz or text 9173707636 didn’t get to cop but looking for a pair now!

  25. i was to young to realize how whats so important about them n now that i have the money i would buy this pack box the 11s and jus wear the 6s

  26. I remember that day! I was working 2 Sports Zone on Georgia Ave. in DC, and this was some of the last good ol’ Saturday’s when people used to get up early and they’d sell out the same day! We had to have MPD there for security! Bamas were tryna rob each other for em’ that day! Of course I hid my pair behind the register!

  27. My boy gave me the 11′s out of this pack like 3 years ago, they beat up but I still rock them just because their my favorite Jordans ever. I dont know what it is about the 11′s but they just have a special place in my heart, just like the 12′s do.

  28. THE BEST PACKAGE EVER!!! I WON THE RAFFLE TO COPPED THESE IN LOS ANGELES. THEN HAD THE BEST THREESOME AFTER. WOW….BEST DAY EVER!!!!

  29. wow 5 years what an adventure that day I worked in the morning heard they were releasing at the mall near by called my home girl up for some extra cash caught the bus back to the other side of the county than had to ride another bus filled with drunks and other creatures of the night with my stack of money glad the stick-up boys weren’t on the hunt that night, finally arrived at the mall and had to sneak thru the door that someone had left opened and duck mall security and realize that 20 other people were already there but thru all of that I was able to get the pack because a kid in front of me credit card was declined and I got the only size 8.

  30. I didn’t even know what Air Jordans were about back then. Plus I was broke as a joke so it wouldve never happened anyway. Now is the time to make it happen plus I got a job that can support my new sneaker obsession. :)

  31. i was in the 7th grade and i was just starting to become addicted i remember the day like it was yesterday i was in footlocker looking at kicks and i saw this dude with that big gold box and i was like damn what the hell is in there because dude was so ecstatic it was like he got a golden ticket or some shit…i wish i had the funds and knowledge i do know back then lol

  32. WoKe up in the morning and was 2nd in line, waited just an hour copped and went home! Plus there was 2 other stores selling them in mall also! Very simple…

  33. I regret not getting them.I was worried bout paying my rent.Didnt think I was gonna have enough $$$ left over to get them.By that time,they had already sold my pair…

  34. it’s crazy how at the time i thought sketchers were the ish just cause they had light up parts. Also I think Heelys were the shoes i really wanted.

  35. If dez come out again I will buy 3-5 pair.. Real talk.. I knew dey was gonna b fire n I was in high Skool broke ain’t even go lie.. But I got my bread up now!!!! Lol

  36. i copped these a week before release for 4 billz. i was on the train wit that big ass box, wit my feet propped up on them. when the train pulled up at the junction, they knew what was n there cuz u cant help but notice that gold blinging..lol.a good cop im happy i tried on the 11 and the 11.5 cuz they ran a lil crazy.

  37. Me and a few co workers traveled all the way from Montreal, Canada to get a pair. Waited in line at the Foot Locker in Times Square, NY for them and finally copped them. They were worth the wait and it was one of the best trips of my life. Time flies by so fast!!

  38. i remember this me and ma bro camped out and was the second and third people in line.damn i wish they was still ds.even the box was crazy.bring um back

  39. Got mine DMP’s and I rock em every now n then…even got the matching hoodie from a sneaker spot in Philly.

  40. I had the Footlocker hookup. My boy held a pair for me that Saturday morning. I still remember, I was laid up in the hospital for a week. I checked out that morning and headed straight to the mall. Mines are still icey having worn them less than 10 times each. I consider them 1b to my 1a AJV w/ Nike Air.

  41. The only major shoe release I’ve done in Atlanta. I prefer to stay local where its much easier (Warner Robins, GA) but these weren’t releasing at any of the local stores so I had to brave the Atlanta crowds. I got up there a day prior to release, walked in an Athlete’s Foot (corner of Redan and S. Hairston) and talked the guy into holding me a pair on RD, and also was able to have a friend of mine call into his relative who owned another store in the South Dekalb mall (can’t remember the name). So RD I pick up the first pack from Athlete’s Foot (but the guy charged me $50 more!), and then went to S. Dekalb and picked up my 2nd pair….was able to walk in the store prior to it opening while those that camped out watched. Pissed 2 guys off who followed me around the mall and even into the parking lot. Thankfully nothing happened. Was pissed that I paid over retail for the 1st package and ended up taking it back. Something I regret to this day. But definitely the best executed package by JB.

  42. Good memories!!!!!! I Still remember coping them and getting escorted to my car by the mall Security because people were getting mug for them in the parking lot. It was mayhem “J” day

  43. Why is it when it’s one vicious ass shoe that I wanna get ya always gotta throw another shoe wit it and make it a double pack when Ian tryna pay and buy one in particular not both shoes aaahhhhh…. But waitin for dem to drop

  44. ok my story with these i didn’t even know they released this pack back in 06 wasn’t that into kicks back then but about a year ago i found the pack deadstock on ebay for $400 i was sooo happy that made my day right there! lol

    • That doesn’t sound to legit I’ve been offered $450 just for the 11′s alone, if its legit nice pick up.
