This Friday’s release of the Air Jordan VI “Infrared” caps off one of the most aggressive and ambitious celebrations of Air Jordan milestones. 2014 marked the 23rd year of the VI, and Jordan Brand was relentless in reminding you of this Tinker Hatfield-designed model, using enticing Retro releases in OG and new form. The first-ever Sport Blue Retro made its way onto store shelves, and some sick materials were presented to us in Cigar and Champagne form, but the magnus opus of the 6 is clearly what the brand had saved for last.
This sneaker is known as the shoe that MJ rocked en route to his first ring, and over the years we’ve seen several iterations of this iconic shoe. After the OG is five different installments, which include true-to-detail Retro releases, unreleased samples, Packs, and controversial changes that left the shoes collecting dust on store shelves. Without further ado, take a look back at the six different Infrared 6s of the past and stay tuned for this Friday’s release at Jordan retailers worldwide.
