The Jordan 6 Retro That is Worthy to Buy

History of Jordan 6 Retro:

Let us all turn our calendars back to 1990 and get into the history of Jordan 6 Retro. If you know anything about sneakers or basketball in the 90s, you would surely know that by the year 1990 the creators of Nike’s signature Air Jordan line already had the game on lock. Michael Jordan had been taking the world of basketball by storm, and Tinker Hatfield had risen to the top of the sneaker design industry, and earned his place at the helm of the most influential sneaker design franchise the world has ever seen. Much like the clutch plays that Michael Jordan had been executing on the court, leading the Bulls to victory in the face of certain defeat. Michael Jordan wore these sneakers as he led the Bulls in the charge to their first-ever championship win. 

The Air Jordan six was first launched in 1991 retailing for a hundred and twenty-five dollars, and it came in five original colorways; the infrareds, the varsity reds, the carmines, the off-white, and maroon colorway, and the white and support blue. The year 2000 saw retro of the black infrared, followed by two other colorways including Olympic retro six and midnight navy retro six along with a price reduction from Nike. 2008 was the first time the car mines would retro and they came in the CDP pack. In 2010 there were ten pairs of retro six were released that included two different black infrareds, the white infrareds, motorsports, Oreos, pistons, and Lakers. Two more retro pairs were dropped in 2012, out of those, the first was the first retro of the Olympic sixes which originally dropped in 2000, and retail for these was quite low. And then 2014 was the year that dropped most pairs of the retro sixes and in total ten different pairs were dropped, and the colorways were the white infrared, infrared twenty-three, G carmine, the cigar and champagne pack, brazil retro six, Spisak history of Jordan, slam dunks and the black infrareds. In 2015, Jordan brought the first retro of the og maroons and for that release they finally brought Nike Air back on the heel for the first time.

Tinker Hatfield and Jordan 6 Retro:

Tinker Hatfield had saved Nike’s relationship with Michael Jordan with his design of the Jordan three and since then, the Jordan four and Jordan five had been sensational. They made a statement and established that Air Jordan was here to stay and the best was yet to come from Michael Jordan and Jordan brand. The air Jordan six was kind of the last Nike Jordan because after that Nike and Air Jordan as brands established their own identity. In this way, this was the last Jordan with a visible air unit for a long time. And finally, in the same spirit, the Jordan 6 retro would be the final Air Jordan model promoted by the familiar ad campaign featuring Spike Lee’s Mars Blackman character.

Like it has been mentioned earlier, every single Jordan brand release had been a wild success since Tinker Hatfield took the reins. When it came to designing the Jordan 6 retro, Tinker Hatfield as usual worked closely with Michael Jordan, sticking to that classic blend of luxury and performance designs that the Jordan brand had become known for.


 Design details of Jordan 6 Retro:

On the luxury side of things, Tinker Hatfield included features like a heel tab inspired by the spoiler of a Porsche. And a sleek minimal toe tip, that Michael Jordan requested himself citing the sleek tips of the Italian dress shoes he had recently been growing fond of. The spoiler heel tab would be the first of many automobile designs that Tinker Hatfield would incorporate into the Air Jordan line over the years. While designing the Jordan 6 Retro, Tinker Hatfield included large die-cut rubberized tongues with two big figure holes. The tongue, along with the heel tab, ensured ease of use, and in keeping with Hatfield’s approach to the Jordan line, they were ergonomic functional features that also pushed the envelope stylistically, something Tinker Hatfield has always done.

Depending on the colorway, the retro 6’s main material was either nubuck or full-grain leather and it also featured lace locks and clear segments of rubber on the outsole. This pair of retro kicks are also the last Jordan to sport Nike branding on the Shoe’s exterior.

There are slight changes and minor differences in these retros, among them the most notable is a change of the Nike Air logo to the Jumpman logo. Also, there were some light color changes and the Jordan brand also added 3M reflective fabric to the perforated holes in the body of the sneaker.

Performance Review of Jordan 6 Retro:

The traction pattern on the sole of retro 6 is a mixture of clear rubber and solid rubber with holes in it, so basically on a flat floor, it has the capability to perform pretty well because of this feature in it. Such clear soles are more absorbent and sticky, so they provide a very good grip on the surface of the court, it would not have much slip.
