A rare Air Jordan 6 sample has surfaced on social media.

Sneaker leak social media account @Masterchefian shared images of the Air Jordan 6 Low “The Pinkprint” on Instagram this week. The exclusive Air Jordan 6 Low is inspired by rapper Nicki Minaj’s third studio album “The Pinkprint” and never released to the public.

Nicki Minaj’s “The Pinkprint” album released in December 2014 and featured a fingerprint design on the cover, which appears on the heel of the shoe. The upper features a purple to pink gradient color scheme and is offset by white tumbled leather overlay panels. The sneaker also comes with pink shoelaces, with a metallic silver lace dubrae attached on the forefoot, purple sock liner, and a multicolored midsole. A bright pink Jumpman logo appears on the tongue tag while a purple pull tab with pink accents appear on the heel. Rounding out the design is a semi-translucent outsole. According to the account, the sneaker pictured is a sample version of the shoe.

Despite images of Nicki Minaj’s Air Jordan 6 Low “The Pinkprint” colorway surfacing on social media, the sneaker is not expected to hit retail as it was made exclusively for Nicki Minaj.

In related Air Jordan news, Michael Jordan’s namesake brand has announced that there are several Air Jordan styles hitting retail soon. One of the pairs include the Air Jordan 3 “True Blue”-inspired Air Jordan 1 High colorway dropping this Saturday. There’s also a new Air Jordan 2 Low colorway coming in April that’s reportedly tied to this year’s Easter celebrations.
