In “Brown Kelp,” its signature brown is similar to that of the recently-revealed Air Max 90 “Wheat,” covering almost the entirety of the upper. The shoes are inspired by the ACG Air Mowabb.
Utilizing Brown Kelp across the upper with Gore-Tex, which will allow this pair to be water-resistant. “Court Purple” accents appear at the heel tab, GORE-TEX tag and the Jumpman logos spotted at both the tongue and heel. Its smoother upper is backed by GORE-TEX technology, ensuring that it can resist more rain than a traditional AJ6. Rounding out the look, the sole unit sees black and yellow
When did the Air Jordan 6 release?
Second to the Air Jordan 1, the Air Jordan 6 is still to this day one of the most popular silhouettes within the line-up.
Originally released in 1991 and it soon followed MJ into his first NBA Championship, the Air Jordan 6 was designed by Tinker Hatfield. They feature a visible Air unit in the heel as well as a translucent outsole, a molded back heel tab and set of lace locks.
The history behind the Air Jordan 6 is the reason why I love it so much. To me, the shoe will always be iconic as it was worn by Michael Jordan himself en route to his first NBA title.
The Air Jordan 6 may be one of the more uncomfortable retros in the Air Jordan line, I’ve always found them to be very firm underfoot, but the biggest pro of the silhouette is that they’re wide-foot friendly — something that I appreciate.
Sizing wise, they fit relatively true to size. Some will get away with going half a size down because the sneaker has a roomy toe box.
Depending on the materials of the shoe, I care for my Air Jordan 6 sneakers the same way I would care for any other shoe. For suede or nubuck uppers, I use suede brushes and scrub the midsoles and outsoles with a standard shoe cleaning product.
