Nike Air Jordan 6 description

The Air Jordan VI was released in late 1990 and designed by Tinker Hatfield. Jordan won his first NBA Championship wearing these sneakers. The heel tab of the shoe took inspiration from Michael Jordan's slant-nosed Porsche.

In 2008 a second Olympic colorway was released that consisted of an all-white patent leather upper, black tongue, and all of the Olympic rings' colors on the midsole. On the toebox of the shoe is an embroidered Chinese flower as a symbol of the 2008 Summer Olympics.

To celebrate the defining moment of Jordan’s first championship Nike released a commemorative Black/Gold Air Jordan 6 packaged with a White/Black/Gold Jordan 11 sold as the 'Defining Moments Package'.

The entire tongue, and part of the lace locks of the Jordan VI were inspiration for the Air Jordan Spiz'ike. The lace locks and back tab of the Jordan VI were also inspiration for the Air Jordan 6 Rings.

Sakuragi Hanamichi wears Air Jordan VI's in Slam Dunk. They previously belonged to the owner of a shoe store (who happened to collect Air Jordans) that he visited and nearly trashed in his excitement.

In 2010, the Air Jordan VI's were retroed, coming out with a Infrared Pack and several new color ways, there were colorways similar to the Infrared known as the Varsity Red.
