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.
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.
Originally released in 1994, the Air Jordan IX was a Japanese-inspired style that designer Tinker Hatfield chose for MJ's statue in Chicago. The inner bootie, speed-lacing system and sole all spoke to Jordan's winning qualities, which are carried over into the retroed version of the AJ IX. The Jordan Retro 9 features a minimalist upper that combines leather and nubuck materials, which looks great on top of the dynamic-fit inner bootie, internal support straps and one-pull lace locking system. The midsole is made of polyurethane with a large-volume Air-Sole® unit in the heel and forefoot for cushioning, and the sole is made of solid rubber with multidirectional patterns for traction.
