When the Air Jordan 6 was celebrating its Jordan birthday (that’s a 23 year anniversary for those uninformed) the fact that the 1991 lifestyle classic Air Jordan 6 “Maroon” was left off of the release slate was a little puzzling. It was the perfect time to bring the oft-forgotten colorway back given the look hadn’t been released at retailers since the original run. Now we know why Jordan Brand didn’t release the pair then – they were readying a classic ‘Nike Air’ heel branding complete with the traditional translucent outsole. Today we get word on a confirmed release date: December 5th, 2015 with a retail price of $220. Is the extra $30 worth it for that OG Nike Air branding on the heel in order to capture that fully remastered form? Let us know what you think in the comments section. And just in case you can’t wait for this AJ6 retro to drop, you can pick up this pair early on eBay.
