Exciting news has come across the desk this evening — the confirmation of the Air Jordan VI’s (white/infrared colourway) return in 2014.
Originally released during the NBA 1990-1991 season, the shoe played an integral role in the Chicago Bulls’, and Michael Jordan’s, first NBA title. Jordan also took home the NBA Scoring Title for that year, and the second of his five MVP awards.
The Air Jordan VI model is another classic for architect and designer Tinker Hatfield. It features a rubber tongue with two holes that allows the wearer to pull the shoes on with ease. The shoes revisit the Air Jordan V’s clear sole and lace lock design with a more streamline and form-fitting look.
Despite no confirmation yet, sources suggest this will be a 23rd Anniversary release, which has led to speculation as to whether or not the AJ VI will feature the original Nike Air logo on its heel instead of the new Jumpman logo.
2014 is set the be the year of the VI for Jordan Brand with this release in the first weeks of February. Get excited. We are!
