Catch the ‘Carmine’ Air Jordan 6 for the Whole Family at JD SportsRelease: 27 February 2021
It’s still early days in 2021, but Jordan Brand are releasing the biggest drop of the year so far: the Air Jordan 6 ‘Carmine’ retro! This will be the first time a reissue of this iconic colourway that Michael Jordan wore en route to his first NBA championship will feature Nike Air branding! Better still, the whole family can take part in this throwback to 1991, with JD Sports stocking all the sizes.
The sneakersphere has been alight with chatter regarding the AJ6 ‘Carmine’ ever since news of its return broke last year. As the release date draws achingly closer, JD have highlighted the key period correct features in this latest retro, which has been laying dormant for the past few years.
Definitely the brightest of the OG AJ6 colourways, alternating panels of white and ‘Carmine’ red highlight the complexity of Tinker Hatfield’s winning design. The brushed material is about as fuzzy as 90s nostalgia, and the Air soles are as familiar as ever. Of course, that all-important Nike Air branding is stitched into the heel panel in bright ‘Carmine’. Pair that with the crispiest ice soles on an Air Jordan in a hot minute, and sneakerheads will be instantly transported back 30 years in time.
People are going crazy for the ‘Carmine’. So, the best way to get that W can be found on the JD Sports Australia App, where plucky punters can try for a chance to purchase the adult and GS sizes online. The raffle is open now, and closes on February 25 at 5PM AEDT sharp!
A tight allocation of full family sizing will also be available from selected JD Sports Australia locations on February 27. Good luck!
