The Air Jordan VI (6) Infared = 6 Million Ways To Die ... Choose This 1.

(Special Shout Out To Barris @ Osneaker.Com For The Heads Up On This Release)
"The Air Jordan brand has announced a historic shoe release scheduled for January 2010. The Air Jordan VI (6) Infared is scheduled to make it’s re-debut. Originally released in 1991, the Jordan VI caught on like wildfire by becoming the first shoe Michael Jordan wore to win an NBA championship. It became the shoe of choice for basketball and leisurely wear during the early 90’s. Nine years later Nike decided to retro the shoe and released it in the summer of 2000. This shoe has developed a cult following and is highly in demand by the sneaker community. 10 years after it’s retro release this shoe will be available for sneakerheads to purchase for $150. Gradient Magazine got a sneak peak at these amazing shoes before they make their re-debut.

Release Date - January 2010
Style# - 384664-061
Colorway - Black/Varsity Red"

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: While I am not as great a subscriber to the science of numerology as, say, a Jackie Stallone (NOTE: Yes, Sly's mama mia ... lol), the fact that Michael "Air" Jordan won his 1st of 6 NBA Championships while wearing his Air Jordan VI (6) Infrared signature sneaker is simply too significant of an event for me not to mention.

Anyway, since somewhere around 1986 the slum gold road to riches had been fully paved with off-white colored bricks and, by 1991 (when these kicks were originally released), not only had Air Jordan risen to the top of his game, but, many street peddlers had as well - 1980's/1990's pop culture and block culture are inextricably linked kid. Walk with me.

In particular, the Air Jordan VI (6) Infrared model is a touchstone in my personal history of enduring style as they were my 1st begged-for-and-successfully-acquired-through-a-deferred-allowance-and-chores-payment-plan pair of Airs. Previously re-released in 2000, these are 1 of the few Air Jordan retros that I must have.

Fast forward to 2009 and, as mentioned in earlier auspicious posts here @ Livestyle, today, my road to the riches is paved with pavé stones ... so, it's only right that I lace up these O.G. gems homie. January 2010 release date Y.O.U. say? I. Can't. Wait.
