If you asked around the sneaker community, most sneakerheads would agree that the Air Jordan ‘Black Infrared’ 6s are high in the ranks as one of the best shoes of all time. Not only are these beautifully designed, but they have some serious history behind them. Jordan won his first championship in these in 1991 when the Bulls defeated the Lakers. But many forget that these historic sneakers made their presence known well before that Championship series even started. Jordan debuted the Air Jordan 6 ‘Black Infrared’ to the world back in February of 1991 when he stepped out on the court in Charlotte in front of his home state to play in the NBA All-Star game. Debuting a shoe to the world was very different back then. There weren’t any debut events or fuzzy pictures taken on a flip phone to leak the shoe to the world.
The shoes were designed by the legend, Tinker Hatfield after MJ’s favorite German sports car. While the silhouette is simplistic and perfect to most, it’s grown to have a reputation off the court as a favorite of many celebrities and influential people over the years. The ‘Infrared’ color has become so popular over the years that Jordan Brand decided to rename it to “Infrared23.” The color isn’t just for the 6s anymore, it is now featured on multiple other Jordan Brand models.
While it hasn’t been that long since we last saw a release of this popular shoe, we are now getting it with classic touches like ‘Nike Air’ on the heel. Back in 2014 when they last dropped, people had said the ‘Infrared’ color was too pink and not enough like the original, but Jordan Brand nailed every detail on this years release. The 2019 version brings back the 1991 feel, with ‘Nike Air’ on the heel and the Jumpman x Nike lace lock and ‘Infrared’ accents. It also maintains the reflective heel detailing and nubuck of the original. Crafted to mirror the original iteration, the 2019 Air Jordan VI also features a PU molded sockliner.

Jordan Brand bodied 2018 like MJ on Muggsy Bogues in the ’90s and now they’re taking it up a notch to start 2019. When it comes to the sneaker world, some colorways get passed over for not having the “MJ effect”, which is the tie of Jordan wearing them in an important game or making a memorable play that people will never forget. Most people think of the Retro 13 when they hear a Jordan Retro in the ‘Flint’ color scheme. JB has never shied away from adding old color schemes to new silhouettes in its storied history and that’s just what we get on the next Air Jordan Retro 6.
Being one of the more popular non-original colorways from Jordan Brand is the ‘Flint’ color blocking, which was made famous on the Air Jordan 7, and later used on the Air Jordan 9, and Air Jordan 13. This Retro 6 gets done up with Grey suede covers the shoe’s underlay in a weathered-looking material while White leather is utilized on the rest of the upper. Black details break up the look, while hits of Indigo and Infrared add pop at the heel, tongue, and sole. Also unique to this colorway is a new branding tab on the lateral side that we’ve never seen on this model.

Earlier this year, Jordan Brand reached back into the archives to bring some designs to life that never got the chance when they were originally sketched by Tinker Hatfield. So far we’ve gotten an alternate versions of the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 13 that were supposed to be the original design but were then scrapped for other looks. Now, Jordan is releasing a special Retro 6 that honors the legendary designer with a colorway he loved but never got pushed through. The design is the same as the one we’ve loved all these years but is now getting draped in a color scheme that we’ve never seen.
White and Grey make up the majority of this model’s upper and is complimented by flashes of color like Infrared 23 and Navy. An icy Blue outsole completes the details on this new Air Jordan 6. If you’re a lover of classic Jordan history, then you’ll want to add these to your collection.
