Jordan 6 Retro Midnight Navy (2022)

The Air Jordan 6 was created by the legendary Jordan Brand designer Tinker Hatfield in 1991 and was an essential piece of footwear during Michael Jordan’s time in the NBA. During MJ’s 1991-1992 season with the Chicago Bulls, the Air Jordan 6s accompanied Jordan as he won his first NBA Championship, his first NBA scoring title, and his second MVP award. The Air Jordan 6 first appeared in a variety of looks back in 1991, with some notable colorways like the Infrared, Carmine, and Sport Blue. As the sneakers were becoming as popular as Michael Jordan himself, Jordan Brand began retroing some of his iconic silhouettes, with the Jordan 6 receiving its first retro treatment in 2000. This re-release birthed new colorways, including the Midnight Navy iteration. The sneaker featured a white tumbled leather upper, a Jumpman logo on the heel, and Midnight Navy accents throughout the midsole, tongue, and outsole. This week marks the colorway’s first return in over two decades, as the sneaker boasts the same look and feel as its 2000 predecessor.
