Inside SNEAKER NEWS Volume One, you’ll find our recap of Jordan Brand’s yearlong celebration of the Air Jordan VI’s 23rd anniversary. 2014 saw the release of ten different colorways of the sixth Air Jordan signature model, spanning a variety of original colorways as well as some new additions to the AJ6 family. To further magnify the different Jordan VI styles and stories that took shape over the course of the year, we had each of the ten colorways illustrated by a different artist, with each talented contributor putting their own unique twist on the lines, shapes, and colors that bring the shoes to life. Continue on for a full rundown of the “Year of the VI” releases, and look for the print version of this story in SNEAKER NEWS Volume One, available now.

Through five installments of the Air Jordan series, fans of Michael’s sneakers had grown accustomed to the familiar shade of team-based red taken from the Chicago Bulls uniform. In 1991, the debut colorway of the Air Jordan VI brought in a fresh take on the traditional red hue by introducing “Infrared”, a far more radiant shade that packed a visual punch like never before. Since “Infrared” first hit the scene, it has been enshrined as a true milestone in the honored Air Jordan legacy.
