Chines New Year is just around the corner, taking place on February 16th of this year. Nike and Jordan release sneakers every year in celebration of the Chinese Festival, and this year, Jordan has a wonderful surprise for us!!! The Air Jordan 6 CNY is dropping very soon, and is highly anticipated without a shadow of a doubt. Almost every one will be after these sweet kicks!!!
The Air Jordan 6 History
The Air Jordan 6 was originally released way back in 1991. Michael Jordan has wore these during his first NBA title and won his first NBA Finals MVP. The Air Jordan 6 was the first Jordan to feature a reinforcement around the toe of the sneaker. Tinker Hatfield has designed two holes on the top of the tongue, and “spoilers” on the back of the shoes. Hatfield has done this because MJ has been having issues with putting on the past five Jordan models (Air Jordan 1-5). Like the Air Jordan 5, the Air Jordan 6 features clear rubber soles, making it the second Jordan to have this feature. The clear rubber soles on the 6 was built to be more solid, since there were complaints that kids that owned the Jordan 5 were falling because the soles would collect dust on the court, which made the sole slippery. The heel tab on the 6 was positioned to prevent it from hitting MJ’s Achilles Tendon. MJ’s number “23” was also incorporated on the sneaker as well. When the 6 first came out in 1991, it was $125.00.
Features Of The Shoe
This shoe features nubuck and leather material on the upper of the shoe that consist of black with a multicolor design on it. You will also notice the floral designs throughout the sneaker as well. Additionally, it features touches of metallic gold on the Jumpman logos, heel tabs, lace locks, and midsoles. Also, it comes with clear translucent outsoles. It will feature 3m Reflection on the upper, just like the Air Jordan 6 Black Infrared. Finally, it will come in a special CNY shoe box that features the saying: “QUALITY INSPIRED BY THE GREATEST PLAYER EVER”.
