Air Jordan 6 Retro 'Carmine' Makes a Comeback

Soon, the Air Jordan 6 Retro 'Carmine' returns! On February 13, this retro pair will be available via Nike. The OG colourway of this Jordan is brought back especially for the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 6. Check out all the details of this design below.

This Air Jordan 6 was first released in the 'Carmine' colorway in 1991. The design consists mainly of the colours white and red, or: Carmine Red. The alternating colours create a contrasting effect, which is typical for this design. Furthermore, black details have been added to the rubber tongue and the heeltab. There is also a hint of blue on the sole.

A special detail is that the shoe during the original release in 1991 was the last Jordan sneaker that had the Nike logo on the heel. After this, the Jordan brand chose to use the Jumpman symbol instead of the Nike logo. Now, after 30 years, the Nike logo can be seen for the first time on a Jordan model.
