Michael Jordan first wore the Nike Air Jordan 6 in 1991 at the All-Star Game in North Carolina. The color combo in which MJ entered the field at the time is called “Infrared”. The bright red tone, which was already known from the Air Max 90, is still unmistakable today and is part of Nike’s design DNA.
Further arguments for finally buying an Air Jordan 6:
In the sixth Jordan, the player took home his second MVP title, a top scorer title, and his first championship title. Mr. 23’s sixth signature shoe is as much a part of basketball history as the GOAT’s performance on the court.
First of all, you have to choose the style you want to buy. What about Cactus Jack, Slam Dunk and the like? To buy one of the rarer 6 Jordans from the past, you can look around on second market platforms like Klekt. If you were able to snag one of these pairs at release, you probably got it at stores like Solebox, Kickz, SNS or of course via the Nike SNKRS app. Furthermore, selected styles of the Air Jordan 6 are also available for purchase at Snipes, Foot Locker, etc.
In fact, there aren’t too many collabo colorways of the AJ6. There is one that Travis Scott collaborated on. Drake also collaborated on two versions, and there are a couple of colorways here and there that were created through synergy.
Other strong colorways of the AJ6, are retros like the Infrared, the Carmine, the Black Cat and other color combinations that have been released over the years.
Before you buy a pair of Air Jordan 6, you should check beforehand if you have the right apparel hanging in your closet. If, unlike French Montana and Drake, you would like to have a stylist after all, you should choose safe options: Joggers in plain colors like gray or black, always go with sneakers and in this case, too. With jeans, the whole thing depends on the cut. You should just try different combinations there and see with which pants the sneaker continues to look good and does not swallow him too much.
