Who Is Michael Jordan?

Michael Jordan is a retired professional basketball player who has played for 15 seasons in NBA for the Chicago Bulls, and the Washington Wizards. During his time at the University of North Carolina in 1982, he played basketball for the North Carolina Tar Heels, and was drafted for the Chicago Bulls in 1984. He was able to entertain the crowd with his prolific scoring, defensive plays, and his ability to perform slam dunks from the free throw line at the slam dunk contests, which has earned him the nicknames: Air Jordan and His Airness.

History Of The Air Jordan Brand

In 1984, Nike was a struggling shoe company looking for ways to appeal to a new segment of the shoe market, and to reinvent themselves. Nike has turned to rookie Michael Jordan to order to make an endorsement deal, but MJ showed no interest at all. MJ had plans to sign a deal with either Adidas or Converse; he loved the brands, and in North Carolina, these were the shoes that wore to play basketball in. Unfortunately, both of the brands rejected him.

Nike was offering to create a brand new line of shoes called Air Jordan, and MJ’s old agent, David Falk, saw this as a wonderful opportunity. MJ flew to the Nike headquarters in Portland, Oregon, after being convinced by his parents , and his agent. During his visit, Nike has shown him a special video presentation of his college career highlights, plus his high-flying Olympics moves with Pointer Sister’s “Jump” playing in the background. Peter Moore, Nike’s Old Head Designer, also shown MJ sketches of the Air Jordan 1, and apparel to go with it. It was featured in Black and Red, and MJ was very interested with these designs. He has stated: “I can’t wear these shoes, those are devil colors”.

MJ has decided to finally make a deal with Nike, and has signed a 5-year deal that was worth $2.5 million. MJ has fueled the success of Nike, and the Air Jordan Brand is still popular today.

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 (According To Footlocker.com)

  • Leather, suede, or synthetic upper.
  • Die-cut tongue and heel “spoiler” tab for easy on/off access
  • Lace lock and cover help keep your laces tied all the time.
  • Perforations on upper for breathability.
  • Visible Air-Sole unit in heel.
  • Signature clear rubber portions of outsole.

Additional Features

The sneaker keeps it simple with a colorway of black and gold. The nubuck upper is dressed in black, white pops of metallic gold is located by the midsole, heel, and branding as well. Additionally, it features the traditional translucent outsoles.

  3. Yo! sap? I remember being a kid and seeing the big boys with these sneakers. I really liked them 14 years ago and I really like them now! I’m glad they’re back and I would like to wear them myself.

    I really like the black and gold combination. It looks awesome!

  4. Great info on the Air Jordan 6 kick. I wonder if this one just dropped. I am not much of a basketball fan, but I like Air Jordan shoes. I think many of the orignal versions have been redesigned. I like this colourway. it looks stylish.

    Is this one only designed for court or we can style it off court?

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Hello Aye, thanks for the comment. It doesn’t matter, you can either style them or play ball 🏀 in them. The majority of people are actually styling them. 

  5. Michael Jordan is synonymous with the word basketball. He is nearly immortal in the eyes of basketball fans around the world. These Jordan 6’s are a testament to him. With his jumping logo all over the shoe and his number 23 emblazoned on it as well. Not only that but I really love the look of these shoes. The color combination looks sexy and the shoes themselves look great too. If I collected shoes this one would definitely be one to own.

  6. This truly is a blast from the past. The design is just too notch and the way the feeling just gives us really good too. I like the way they used black and a touch of gold around the sole of the shoe. But I’m concerned with that white, wouldn’t it fade off after wearing for a while. I’m not really an OG from the 06 but this one is not bad like that.

I also love it’s the design of the sole and the comfort that comes with it

  8. Great exit and great entry of this very good sneaker. I am really touched to see the beauty it beholds. I have to say that I didn’t think that anyone will give the details of a shoe as banging as this one on their website about this shoe from over a decade ago. The price is on the high side but I think it is still very worth it.

  14. When the Air Jordan 6 first came out in the 90s, everyone was hysterical about the lovely sneakers and I must say that as an high school kid then, I cherished my Air Jordan 6 sneakers than my books. It’s great to see that the classic sneakers are back in vogue once more. The price is quite fair and I’ll get the kicks for my son.

    • Hello, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content!

  18. MJ 6 sounds like wonderful shoes, but can the average kid afford to get these shoes? Are they very expensive?  How many colors do the MJ 6’s come in? 

    Are these MJ 6’s good for basketball only? Can the MJ 6’s be wore for other sports as well? 

    Did you mention that the last time  these MJ 6′ s came out was about 15 years ago?

    Why has it been so long between new designs of MJ’s shoes?

    When do you think that the next new design of the MJ’s will be out?

    Again very good article,  I enjoyed it very much.  Job Well Done!

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. The average person can actually afford these as they are not so expensive. The Air Jordan 6 has been released in over 30+ colorways from what I have gathered. 

      These were only designed for the basketball 🏀 sport, I wouldn’t recommend playing any other games in these. No, these sneakers first debut in 1991, almost 30 years ago. A new pair of Air Jordans come out every year

  19. I know the Air Jordan 6 DMP which was released in 2006. It was a very nice one and many people loved it and I was not an exception. I loved using it in virtually on games. I’m glad to know about its release again after a whole 14 years. That’s a very long time and they really took out time to ensure that this very latest one is worth the wait or the delay. I love it.

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content! 

  20. Hello thanks for such an awesome article and the historical background of Micheal Jordan. Jordan shoes has been my favourite choice for ages, because of the comfort it gives me and the lightweight,it is durable when used for sport activities and awesome when used on casual wears. That makes it to suit more than one purpose. 

    thanks

  23. Incredible. Enjoyed reading about Michael Jordan, a great American and fabulous Basketball player. I think I might have paid $ 6.95 for my first pair of Converse All Stars. I recall being interested when I heard about the fist $ 100.00 pair of what we all called tennis shoes, in those days. Now I am fascinated to read about near $ 300.00 tennis shoes. Further, fascinated to read about people collecting tennis shoes. Not the world I grew up in.

    I do find your layout, navigation and content engaging.  The subject matter is probably great for bringing traffic with targeted keywords.  Traffic is the key to sucess on a website.  

    You did a good job writing this, and Jordan is in the news again, I saw him on tube as I walked by earlier.  You should do will with content like this.  CQ

  25. Definitely glad to have these classics, I missed out on the OG DMP back in ’06 and I always wanted these and the DMP 11’s, hopefully those will drop too within the next year. Having these 6’s in hand, they are so dope. I had to put two coats of Crep on these to protect them.
