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. The Jordan Retro 6 is a retroed version of that classic shoe, offering a fresh look with the same iconic details. 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.
