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.
