The Air Jordan VI has been a strong favourite for many since its initial inception back in 1991, surrounded by greats such as the III and IV. Yet again designed by Tinker Hatfield, the VI received innovative details such as its iconic tongue and heel ‘spoiler’, as well as the completely clean leather upper and clear rubber outsole.
Last seen in 2008 as part of the pestigious Collezione Package, along with a coinciding Air Jordan 17, its ‘Carmine’ nickname was aptly chosen due to its bold shade of red used across its base layers, a colourway that featured soon after Michael Jordan’s first championship title. Although the colour blocking was perfectly set for any Chicago Bulls fan during both its first and second release, not many were produced, which contributed greatly to its now highly-sought after reputation.
The Air Jordan VI OG Retro ‘Carmine’ will be launching this coming Saturday 24th May online at 8:00am BST via direct links on our Facebook and Twitter pages. They will also be available in selected size? stores from their respective opening times on the day, priced at £135 in UK sizes 6 – 14 (including half sizes).
