If you’ve got a pair of Jordans way ahead of schedule you might as well wear them, right? Thankfully one Instagram user decided so, resulting in the first on-feet look we’ve had yet at the “Infrared 23″ Jordan 6 that’s on the schedule for next year. We wouldn’t anticipate the shoe not selling out, but for what it’s worth there do look to be a decent number of other Infrared-tinted pairs around the corner. Get the full shot below and tell us in the comments if you’ll be copping this Air Jordan VI retro when it releases in 2014.
Damn!!!!!! Had to stop at this cauee is it just me or if you stare at these shits long enough your eyes start to hurt!!!! Bad move on these imo
These Iam on the fences about in these pics it looks pretty good but other pics it looks extremely cheap as if some one took a paint brush and started to paint the Infrared on to them lol Guess my decision will be release day as Iam just about to pay for them, as of right now. I think the suede may have been the better choice with these.
Its crazy that grown ass men are still complaining about this sneaker. Its so simple if u don't like them don't buy them. These are hot as fuck and will sell out quickly. I fucks with the all red jordans anytime long as they look good. These look great on feet and good on my when they drop. Im assuming these must be dropping in a few months bcuz their popping up too much now or gonna be a QS.
I know what infrared is, didnt feel like throwing all that in there at the time but regardless the shoe is entirely that color. I don't see infrared as a pinkish color, ppl who are not used to seeing and only seen infrared thru pics or the Internet wouldn't understand. Infrared is a redish color but more vibrant and pops more when done right, flat infrared looks cheesy bland.
@mintboltA reverse black/infrared suede 6 would be much sicker. As a matter of fact, I have never seen infrared on suede material before. The quality of the leather they put out is just not there anymore. Prolly cheaper for them to make as well.
Really wanted these in suede though!Can you imagine if they had released the Air Jordan 6's Olympics retro in suede though 2 2 much would have been all over!
I hear u big dawg but peep me for a second. First, to everyone these are just pics werent not seeing them in person til they drop so chill. To each its own i like the leather, ppl forget that those early pairs were only samples. On to this my friend, Nike at no time will fall off that's a personal opinion. Nike is a business and that's why they succeed. They are the most creative and innovatived company to date next to under armour. The pull out the biggest athletes and make them superstars while other companies are looking for that one big hit. Yes what they did to kayne was fucked up but what kayne did to Taylor Swift was fucked up too so just say paybacks a bitch. Remember its a business and the flip side to that is u get rich and get screwed in the process sometimes. And to be clear again, only under armour is giving nike any heat right now not no one else. U say nike is out of ideas, that means nike competitiors are far worst bcuz there not capitalizing on it. Nike will have its day bcuz everybody falls from grace at sum point. Far as limited quantities go certain shoes are limited but shoe fans can't accept it, some shoes are meant to be rare but due to replicas and super perfect fakes and shit it does ruin it sum. Remember this all shoes aren't limited so don't blame Nike, get good with an FL, FA, or finish line employee and learn about there shipping and shit and watch how many stores get a good number of shoes but they only sell half of that and then give there boys or closes friends and family the rest, shadey. The raffle system/ticket system ppl blame nike once again. Its their fault when greedy ppl wants to buy 10 pairs of J's and flip the rest on Craigslist/ebay. There fault ppl can't lineup for a decent camp out anymore and wanna break doors down and act a fool. And lastly its pathetic ppl kill over kicks that there going to scuff and fuck up anyways, so thats nike's fault too huh? The system didn't create itself, we did the ppl. All the OG heads and real collectors of the game respected the code so we didn't need the system. These new terms like hypebeast help generate a new generation of new comers to the game that piss on the original formula that was planted by the ppl who loved to buy sneakers.
These are one of the worst colourways I have seen in a while why did they change the material to leather from suede bad choice killed it why show us the suede knowing that they were going to change it to leatherI think Nike are about to fall off personally ,they don't know what they are doing anymore.Kanye/Adidas are about to give them a run for their money next year.Nike are out of ideas i.e the foamposites terrible graphic prints.Why did they not release the yeeze ys in large quantities they create the demand then leave the real fans behind with these raffle/limited release bull crap.
U do kno colors run in all sorts of shades right. The 1991 & 2000s black infrareds are a clear example od different shades of infrared. These 2014s are the same way, still infrared but a slight color difference. I had every infrared 6 and they were a more upbeat vibrant red more orangish then pink. I understand where u coming from tho
Its pink bro..it don't matter if its in person or pics...it looks like pink even on my pair of am90s, believe me I'm used to seeing it all the time ...infrared is nice color don't get me wrong but I think its one of those colors that they shouldnt go over bored with. I think subtle hints of infrared is a nice touch done right on shoes...too much and it looks pink. Idk to me these look too much like customs
