The Last of the Sixes: The “Maroon” Air Jordan 6 Finally Returns

The Last of the Sixes: The “Maroon” Air Jordan 6 Finally Returns

Maroon Jordan 6s 1

If you’re a fan of the Air Jordan 6, the wait is finally over. Two “waits”, to be more accurate: the first-ever retro of the original “Maroon” colorway, and the return of Nike Air branding on the heel. The latter, last seen on the 2000 edition of the Black/Infrared colorway, would normally be the biggest news for an Air Jordan retro, as collectors are always happy to see the original Nike branding return in place of the modified Jumpman branding we’ve grown accustomed to on the early-model retros. But this time, the main focus on this retro is the colorway—one we haven’t seen on the shelves since 1991.

Nobody really knows why it took this long for Jordan Brand to bring back the OG ‘Off White/New Maroon’ Air Jordan 6, but after setting sight on the retro, we can all agree it was worth the wait. Arguably the most “remastered” of all the Air Jordan models brought back this year with better materials, shape, and attention to original details, this Air Jordan 6 is ready to impress when it drops on December 5, 2015. Since we’re feeling nostalgic, check out an original catalog image and shots of MJ wearing the “Maroon” VI alongside our exclusive look at one of the most anticipated retro releases of the year.
