The big question with this year’s Air Jordan 6 “Black/Infrared” has to do with the exact shade of the red sections used on the sneakers. This has been a topic of debate since the last time we saw the sneakers show up in the pack set up in 2010 of course, and you’ll see the debate play out on this site and others ahead of their Black Friday release. For those unsure about what the fuss is, it’s the shade of the “Infrared” on the midsole, which to some is just right, and to others is too far off from the original. How does this set look? Tell us after you check the latest on this exciting Air Jordan 6 below.
Im a shoe customizer and restorer. It doesn't take much to make that OG colorway! We have been complaining about the pinkish colors since the Crimsion 3s which is actullay darker than this years Infrared color. JB needs to reach out to the customers that are buying all these releases. Thats what makes a great company ...the ones who listen to
Theyre customers. We are not always right but we know what we want.
waiting to see these in person...it'd be dope if they released them with the inverted sample color blocking from back in the day with the infrared and black reversed.. (lame) people would be pissed but i'd like to see a pair of them drop one day! (let me stop being lazy and grab a pic...)
You guys need stop with this pink shit. Real OG's remember the original colorway and know that the original color blocking is the same as this release coming up the only thing missing is the Nike Air on the back. I'm glad JB is keeping it the way it was made back in the days with Nubuck and not that ashy gotdamn Suede from 6's pack. Keep saying pass il be easy for me to cop. And no this was not photoshopped. smh
Seriously man durabuck, you will 185 for some durabuck. Haven't u notice durabuck doesn't hold up well after so many years, thats why they ended it's run in 2002 for nubuck bcuz u can do alot more with it. Durabuck was good for the time frame in it's era not in today's world.
Still wearing Air Jordan VI Black - Varsity Red. The dark red isn't as good as the colour I had back in the day, Infrared, which was intense. These new 2014 Air Jordan VI Black Infrared don't look like Infrared. If the images are accurate, the red looks too pink/faded ? why so difficult to get a colour correct ?
@hozezae Nobody hoops in dem shiets man, straight casual wear! If JB gonna charge $200 for their retros they better be OG everything!! But people keep buying it so JB gonna take advantage of it an take the easiest way out to save money for them and take more from us the consumer!!
I agree but they were closer to RED back then.. Nowadays they are pinkish and they don't look the same.. Even though the quality of sneakers are terrible, at least make them look better than what's being put out...
People all over the world hoop I retro j's my dude where u been. My Jordans are for casual wear but that's not for everybody tons of people ball in they retros. Still you OG everything and you wanting OG material in 2014 you will definitely run the risk of yours shoes going bad quickly. Even DS OGs can tend to look bad after 8 years of just sitting, they have good intentions but you never know how things will turn years down the line but from the OGs to now we know how those went.
They will hold up but trying to use materials from the 80s and 90s right now you run the risk of separation and all that quickly. I don't wear my shoes daily at all and I'm fortune to own plenty of J's so my wears stay to a minimum.
@qtbigwatts You're right. OG infrared was so bright it was damn near neon. This is just a case of what happens with retros: It's not going to be the same as the OG. That's probably why they've started referring to the color on this year's retros as Infrared 23.
Just saying bro, I hear ppl like u all the time talk bad but still cop and yall still complaining. You have no idea how quality is, u judging from a pic not actual in hand. Every shoe they shoe starts off with crappie pics yall go nuts then when the HD pics popup now everybody wants them. And infrared always changes but these are the closest to infrared we will see
@hozezae I ain't naive to think NOBODY hoops is em but lets be real. They are meant for casual wear, I'm not worried about 8 years from now I'm talking about the NOW an the shii JB uses ain't cutting it. You don't kno If you gonna even live 8 more years so wear your shii. But you can't defend JB for the shii they pull. Giving us cheap materials, colors not true to OG, paint chipping midsoles with just walking in them and then having us pay 200 for them while they give them to celebs for free!!! Huff that, so you can keep making excuses for JB BS that's fine but like I said JB ain't gonna eat of me!!
