And it’s confirmed: the Air Jordan 6 “Maroon” would be making a comeback to join the parade of Airs that will be breaking out the retail stores this year.
Air Jordan 6 Retro Maroon
Color: Off White/New Maroon
Release Date: October 2015
After its hiatus during its original release date back in 1991, the Air Jordan 6 “Maroon” will be coming back with its new retro look and a few design additions that would endear Jordan heads and fans. More than two decades had past but as sneakereasy.com put it, it’s better late than never for the AJ6 Maroon right?
Besides, the new pair of the Maroon Air Jordan heels will be featuring the Nike Air branding that has not been seen 15 years ago from 2000. If you do not know it yet, Jordan Brand stopped using the Nike Air branding after the Infrared colorway was released in 2000. For almost 15 years, JB switched from using the iconic Jumpman and Air Jordan logos.
At some point, some fans of the original Nike Air branding felt disappointed when the said branding were no longer used especially with the running of the Air Jordan 6 releases for the past few years. But that is about to change because on this year’s holiday season, the Nike Air branding you so missed will be coming back on the heels of the new Maroon Air Jordan 6.
So what’s new with the Air Jordan 6 Maroon? The pair uses a colorway combination of Maroon and an Off White color scheme with a perforated upper leather design for better ventilation. It would seem that the name “Maroon” is somewhat a moniker on the new pair of AJ6 since the shoes only sports the color accents on the tongue, the heels, and a bit on the side of the shoes’ midsole. Aside from the Nike Air found on the heels of the shoes, the AJ6 Maroon also sports the Jumpman logo on the outsole in Maroon color, of course. Aside from that, the shoes also include a detailed translucent outsole.
All in all, the AJ6 Maroon might look plain and simple but it’s the kind of simple that you’d never tire looking at even for a long time. Considering the holiday season, the release of the Air Jordan 6 Maroon can be a very apt gift for those who wants to add something new and cool to their collection of Air Jordans. So far, no exact Jordan release date has been given yet but the pair is sure to hit the market on the holidays.
