The Air Jordan 6 is one of Michael Jordan’s more iconic retro models given the fact that it was the pair that MJ won his first championship. The Infrared colorways remain to be some of the most recognizable in the Jumpman catalog, but it’s also nice to see Jordan Brand experiment with the model like with the upcoming “Black Cat” colorway with additional 3M touches, micro-perforations, and more. This coming March 11, 2017, the brand will be taking a look back at the past with the release of the Air Jordan 6 “Alternate”, an homage to an early production sample that Mike could’ve worn during the 1991 playoff run.
Much like the Air Jordan 4 “Alternate” that released not too long ago, this pair features an alternate colorway construction featuring White, Pure Platinum accents, and a Gym Red finish for a decidedly different take on the classic “Chicago” theme. ‘1991’ stitching hits the inner tongue while Jordan Brand decided to skip over the additional icy blue tint on the outsole much like they did for the Air Jordan 6 Maroon. Today we also get news that this upcoming colorway will be available in grade school sizes in addition to the usual adult size run. What do you think of the look?
