The Air Jordan 6 ‘Carmine’ 2021 Retro Will Have ‘Nike Air’ Branding!Release: 27 February 2021
It’s probably common knowledge at this point, but the Air Jordan 6 ‘Carmine’ retro that’s slated for early 2021 will have the all-important Nike Air branding on its heel! Previous reissues in 2008 and 2014 have used the newer Jumpman branding, but this upcoming drop will be the closest thing to the 1991 OGs. And its appearance on Nike SNKRS has locked in its release date.
The ‘Carmine’ is among the AJ6’s OG colourways, and its provenance is also boosted by the fact Michael Jordan wore them on-court en route to his first NBA ring with the Chicago Bulls. Unlike the Black/Infrared and White/Infrared home and away editions, the ‘Carmine’ uses much bolder colour-blocking, with two-toned red and white perforated uppers that alternate between nubuck and leather respectively. While a bold black midsole strip separates the upper from a visible heel Air unit and partial ice outsole. Elsewhere, the tall tongue top with large cutouts enables easy pulling in tandem with a stretchy neoprene lower section. And the lace toggles are included too – though most sneakerheads will likely rethread them through the beginning of the laces, just like MJ.
The Air Jordan 6 ‘Carmine’ retro is scheduled to release on February 13 via Nike SNKRS and selected retailers.
