One of the most highly anticipated Jordan 6’s to ever release, the Air Jordan 6 Retro Maroon released towards the end of 2015. Jordan Brand had been teasing the release of the Maroon VI for years and many decided not to believe it until they saw it. When pictures of the shoes leaked from China in July, the blogosphere went crazy. Finally, the very simple and elegant shoe would see its first retro release, in men’s, GS, and PS sizing. Moreover, it would prominently feature ‘Nike Air’ on its heels. The Air Jordan 6 Retro Maroon was part of Nike’s Retro Remaster initiative, which began in spring of 2015 series, and was said by The Swoosh to be as close to the original 1991 product from back in the day. What makes the Maroon 6 so special are its gorgeous off-white leather upper and sparse deep maroon red accents at the midsole and tongue. Additionally, Jordan Brand decided to give the Maroon 6 milky translucent hits on the outsole, rather than the icy blue traditionally found on a Jordan Retro 6. For the final touch, Jordan Brand made sure the box for the Jordan 6 Retro Maroon was designed just like the original from 1991.
