In order to appreciate the Jordan Retro 6, you have to start at the beginning. It all started in 1991, when the original Air Jordan VI was released – it was the first Jordan with an internal bootie and it boasted a striking design, Porsche-inspired pull tab and Vis-Air® unit. It was also the shoe MJ wore as he captured both the league and Finals MVP. The Jordan Retro 6 is a retroed version of that classic shoe, offering a fresh look with the same iconic details. This shoe comes specially packaged in a "box within a box" to keep the original box from being damaged and helps to keep it in "collector's condition." The upper is a combination of leather and synthetics with perforated details and sleek designs throughout. The pull tab remains the same and the midsole cushioning provides comfort with polyurethane, a Vis-Air® unit in the heel and an Air® unit in the forefoot. The sole is comprised of solid and translucent rubber with a unique traction pattern for performance and style. Wt. 18.0 oz.
I've always wanted these shoes since I was in middle school. I couldn't afford them back in the day. Or should I say, my parents couldn't afford them. Now that I'm older it is kind of nostalgic to finally get them. I haven't wore them yet and not sure I will. They are sitting in my display case along with my other sneaker collection.
Nike is reinventing retro running with the early '90s-inspired Nike Air Max 95 No Sew. The upper is made of a sheet of fused mesh material paired with leather details on the heel, mudguard, and Nike's signature Swoosh to deliver an ultra-lightweight yet supportive fit. A polyurethane midsole provides cushion and the environmentally preferred rubber outsole adds eco-friendly traction for daily wear. Wt. 15.5 oz.
