Championship pedigree and an all-time great colorway combine in the Air Jordan 6 Retro ‘Carmine’

Thirty years ago this June, Michael Jordan reached the promised land, securing his first NBA championship in five games against the Los Angeles Lakers.

As the old saying goes, you always remember your first, and we’ll never forget what His Airness had on his feet for that first title: the Air Jordan 6.

MJ and Tinker Hatfield had one goal in mind when designing the sixth edition of the most important signature shoe on the planet: It had to take him further, beyond his already-prolific list of on-court achievements.

Jordan’s requests tech-wise were clear: more support, more comfort, and more protection in the toebox. Hatfield accommodated and the AJ6 was born, arriving in the unmistakable Black and White ‘Infrared’ colorways as well as ‘Sport Blue’ and ‘Carmine.’

The latter, featuring gorgeous Carmine red suede across the toe and throughout the otherwise-white upper, became one of the most highly sought-after Jordan colorways until its retro releases in 2008 and 2014.

Now, seven years after its last appearance, those red suede shoes are back in OG fashion with the Air Jordan 6 Retro ‘Carmine.’

Boasting icy blue outsoles, black highlights as well as the Carmine/white combination we all know and love, as well as the original “Nike Air” branding at the heel, the latest edition isn’t one you want to miss out on.

You can add some NBA sneaker history to your collection when the Air Jordan 6 Retro ‘Carmine’ drops in full family sizing on 2/13 at and in select stores via product release drawing*.
