During the sampling up process though, Jordan Brand made a Lakers VI that did not feature the reflective paneling that will be on the final version which in effect, took the "showtime" out of the sneaker. Instead, the sample Lakers VI featured a full nubuck upper and the contrast stitching on was also a lot less subtle.
The final version can be seen [HERE] but for those who aren't a fan of the nubuck/reflective combo, you can take a look at what might have been.
