Air Jordan VI “Carmine” – 2014 Retro

air jordan vi carmine 2014 1 Air Jordan VI Carmine   2014 Retro

Jordan Brand’s formula of bringing back OG colorways twenty-three years after its birth is no hidden formula, so next year’s Air Jordan VI drops should be rather predictable. That doesn’t mean we won’t be excited because the AJ6 is on legendary status with colorways like the “Carmine” bringing some distinct flavor to the heralded Air Jordan III-through-VI club. We can definitely expect said Carmine colorway to return in 2014, and although a release date hasn’t been confirmed, we know you’ll be keeping your eyes on this developing story. From what’s shown here in this super-icy pair, the OG box with the cement print and black top will make a return as well. Let’s hear how bad you want ‘em in the comments area below.

Ichiro Wears OG Carmine VI While Meeting Michael Jordan in 1995

ichiro meets michael jordan in carmine vi 95 Ichiro Wears OG Carmine VI While Meeting Michael Jordan in 1995

In the 90s, it was tough to find someone who didn’t have a pair of Air Jordans on their feet at some point.; it wasn’t a ‘sneakerhead’ thing, but simply a display of reverence to the most dominate athlete in the world – period. Michael’s influence was definitely measurable on the global scale (the Air Jordan IX was a direct tribute to that), with one particular example of Jordan’s reach being this forgotten meeting between Michael and a then-unknown Ichiro Suzuki. Ichiro was just 22 years old at the time and only beginning to make a name for himself in Japan (he wouldn’t reach the Major Leagues until 2001), and during this meet-and-greet, the star-struck Ichiro wore an original pair of the Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’ – quite the impressive on-feet display considering the shoes were roughly four years old at that point.

Even Michael, who was wearing the Concord XI,  couldn’t help but point out Ichiro’s kicks by mentioning “Nice shoes!”. That’s right, Ichiro; before you were an MLB MVP and ROY, you were breaking Jordan’s neck with a pair of his own shoes. What did Ichiro get out of this meeting? Aside from meeting his sports idol, he managed to cop an autographed message, but more importantly, Jordan may have motivated Ichiro to become the “Jordan” of Japanese baseball and go on to have a Hall of Fame career in the Major Leagues. Check out this rare and forgotten footage and try to spot Ichiro’s OG Carmines!

Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’ – Autographed Pair on eBay

January 14th, 2012 by | 11 comments

air jordan vi carmine autographed pair ebay 00 570x427 Air Jordan VI Carmine   Autographed Pair on eBay

2010 was the last big year for the Air Jordan VI, during which we got treated to OG looks via the Infrared Pack as well as a good number of brand new colorways. Noticeably absent however was the Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’ which last popped up in the countdown pack release of 2008. Fortunately we’ve spotted a pair up for grabs with a very special embellishment. The line up of autographed Air Jordans has been pretty strong as of late, but do you ever seen yourself putting down the dough for this kind of a collection piece? An argument can be made for both sides, in what eventually boils down to the old rock ‘em vs. stock ‘em debate. Let us know how you feel in the comments below, and if you’re so inclined, you can grab this Michael Jordan autographed pair of the Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’ from abas15 on eBay.

Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’ Sculpture

Check out this sample of the Carmine VI made for Shaquille O’neal. But seriously, remember that Air Jordan VI sculpture we showed you at the end of August? Here’s a look at the completed project, painted perfectly to resemble the Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’. This sculpture was done by an artist who goes by the name Mr Loverman El Hedonista (by far one of the coolest artist handles we’ve ever come across), who decided to show off his sick artwork by displaying it next to an actual pair of the Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’, on the roof of a red car, and a woman who we presume to be the future Mrs. Loverman El Hedonista. Check out the gallery of images below and let us know what you think!

New Jersey-native Joe Budden has been in the mainstream spotlight since 2003 since his ‘Pump It Up’ track became a popular track in a number of movies. Since then, Budden’s stardom as a musician hasn’t exactly been a steady upward slope, but has managed to stay in the spotlight for a number of reasons – his group Slaughterhouse signing with Shady Records earlier this year, the well publicized feud with his ex-girlfriend Esther Baxter, and a few other tidbits of drama, but he’s managed to keep his sneaker game on point. So far, he’s been spotted with the Nike LeBron 8 South Beach, the Air Jordan VI Carmine, Air Jordan XI Concord, and a few more sneaker gems, so check out a nice collection of Joe Budden and his kicks after the jump and let us know what you think.
