The Air Jordan 6 turns 23 this year, and in the world of His Airness (for obvious reasons) that’s a good reason to celebrate big! We are expecting to see a huge roll-out of retro and all-new colourways of the 6 this year, just like we did in the One Three with the AJ5 that passed the same commemorative milestone. Here Jordan Brand take the infamous Infrared colour and go completely to town on the AJ6, covering the upper of the ’91-born basketball sneak completely in the burning hot hue. A bit of black comes into play with the fiery scheme making for a real menacing makeup, but fear not as per standard Jordan 6 DNA, the soles are infiltrated with a layering of cold ice… nice! Get set to cop from this Saturday, February 15th from Jordan Brand stockist globally and online directly from Nike… that’s the same day as the straight-up Infrared edition too! Double cop anyone?
