AIR JORDAN 6 HISTORY:
Foe the season 1990-91, after seven years in the NBA league, Michael Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to a 4-1 victory over Los Angeles Lakers for their first NBA championship. The dominant Showtime team of the ‘80s has passed the torch to MJ’s and the Bulls’ dominance of the ‘90s. That season, MJ also won his fifth scoring title, his second league MVP Award, another NBA All-Star placing and is awarded the Finals MVP.
Released in February 1991, the Air Jordan 6 silhouette is designed by a legendary sneakers designer Tinker Hatfield. For this model, Michael Jordan gave direct orders to the designer – he wanted to have a clean toe.

MJ was complaining that he had problems putting on the past five models, so he designed two holes on the top of the tongue, and one loop on the back, so they can be put on easily. He called this feature “a spoiler”.
Initially sold for a retail price of $125, the Air Jordan 6 was the second model to have the clear rubber sole. When the Air Jordan V was released a lot of people complained that the soles would collect dust that was on the court, making the sole slippery, so Tinker added a more solid rubber.
There were only five colorways in the initial release, in 2000 three models were re-released, and in 2002 three low top versions came out. In 2005 Jordan Brand released a DMP which stands for “Defining Moments Package”, which consisted of the Air Jordan VI and XI..
