AIR JORDAN LOW WEEK

When we kicked off Air Jordan Low week here in the Classics Revisited column just yesterday it was with the Air Jordan XI Low. Now we know that model is far from the first Air Jordan Low to ever hit shelves (recall the even the original Air Jordan 1 had some low versions floating around) but the model nonetheless served as the harbinger of a new era of drop top retro models. It was very much a sign of things to come, a fair warning by the Jordan Brand folks that any given legacy series silhouette could end up popping up with a bit less height than the world was used to at the time. And how did they follow up the dizzying spell of patent leather lows from 2001? By moving on to another of the more highly heralded models, the Air Jordan VI.

The main casualty of the transition from Air Jordan VI to Air Jordan VI Low was the jumbo tongue of the original silhouette, absent on its younger brother that pretty much stopped things right after the Jumpman overlay on the lacing system. Arriving just a year after the blue based Air Jordan XI Low was this Air Jordan VI Low that took a similar approach colorway wise, with the two bearing the nearly same box description save for the university blue utilized on the Air Jordan VI Low in place of the columbia blue of the Air Jordan XI Low. Again taking after the example set by the Air Jordan XI Lows of the previous year, this set arrived in a gang of colorways not entirely foreign to the Air Jordan repertoire at large, but certainly new to the Air Jordan VI (with the university blue here also surrounded by a chrome and a pink pair in April of 2002). Click through to check out this and the rest of the Air Jordan VI Lows from 2002 and let us know if you’ve still got an icy pair tucked away in the closet. Also, be sure to check back with us at the same time tomorrow for more from Classics Revisited’s homage to the Air Jordan Low this week.
