This year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will mark the retail debut of an Air Jordan 6 “Flint” inspired by a similar colorway from the past. The “Flint” is one of Jordan Brand’s most recognized and well-known colorways that dates back to February 14th, 1998 when it debuted on the Air Jordan 13. This Air Jordan 13 iteration was released three days before Michael Jordan’s 35th birthday and was dressed up in a combination of Carolina Blue, Flint Grey, Navy and White. It was retroed and then re–retroed in 2005 and 2010, respectively. However, the upcoming Air Jordan 6 colorway mentioned here is inspired by an entirely different “Flint” colorway.
The Air Jordan 7 “Flint” Is The Source Of Inspiration
In case you have not figured it out already, all previous Air Jordan “Flint” colorways got their nickname from the Flint Grey hue that was a part of their color scheme. The same goes for the Air Jordan 7 “Flint” that made its retail debut on April 22nd, 2006. Although it was a retro colorway, it could have very well been an original. Its uppers were predominantly made up of clean White leather with Flint Grey-colored nubuck tongues and underlays. Varsity Purple also made an appearance, such as over the “Jumpman” logos. While it was never re–released, but Jordan Brand decided to bring back the colorway on another model.
The Air Jordan 6 “Flint” Looks Quite Similar To The Air Jordan 7 Colorway
Of course, they are not completely identical, but the Air Jordan 6 “Flint” featured here does resemble the color blocking and color scheme of the Air Jordan 7 iteration it draws inspiration from. Its uppers are similarly made up of plain White leather with suede underlays that are covered in the Flint Grey hue. Black also makes an appearance over the heel loops, inner lining, soles and tongues. Dark Concord and Infrared 23 can also be spotted over the heel loops, “Jumpman” logos and other branding, and the lace locks. As you read this, the Air Jordan 6 “Flint” will have likely made its retail debut.
