A BIG AJ release is dropping today, just in time for three very important occasions: Lunar New Year, Valentine’s Day, and (most crucially) payday weekend.
On Titan, the Air Jordan 6 Retro ‘Carmine’ makes a well-timed comeback. Just in time for its 30th anniversary, this take on the AJ6 brings back the classic Nike Air logo on the heel (unlike its previous re-releases in 2008 and 2014, which had the Jumpman). This is a crucial detail, as the AJ6 is the last Air Jordan to have the Nike branding, as the GOAT wanted to have a brand that stands apart from the Swoosh.
Wearing these for the 1990-1991 season, Jordan won the MVP plum as well as his first championship. (It was on the AJ6s that Jordan scored his famous up-and-under in the finals’ Game 2 against the Lakers.) But he only debuted the Carmines at the start of the 1991-1992 season.
Watch the shoe (and well, Jordan) in action for the first time as His Airness makes a definitive slam against the 76ers’ Ron Anderson.
