For fervent fans, each Air Jordan stirs a distinct memory. One may recall the 63 points scored in the Air Jordan I, another the last-second heroics performed in the Air Jordan IV. These memories are refreshed with Retro releases. Part of the Retro Remaster initiative, they celebrate the legacy of the greatest player in history and introduce it to new generations.
Jordan Brand launched the Retro Remaster initiative in spring of 2015. In response to consumer feedback, it incorporates enhanced color options, cushioning, materials and shapes while retaining each shoe’s original character. The brand continues to evolve the remastering process by reintroducing the Nike Air logo on the heels of storied silhouettes. The decision, which honors original designs like never before, was approved by Michael Jordan and debuts this weekend on the Air Jordan 6 Retro “Maroon.”
The fan-favorite Air Jordan 6 Retro ‘Maroon’ returns for the first time ever on December 5. The premium leather upper, icy outsole and Nike Air heel logo will bring back memories of seeing it for the first time. The Maroon color has been matched to the first models, and the box was designed just like the original from 1991.
