Many Jordanheads probably cannot believe that this post is really about the Air Jordan 6 “Maroon,” considering how long this retro colorway has been absent from the sneaker community and on a hiatus. In a way, history is repeating itself since something similar happened in 2014 too and history might even repeat itself with next year’s Jordan releases 2016. As for now, Jordanheads will be delighted to learn that one of the upcoming Jordan release dates 2015 is going to mark the re-release of the classic Air Jordan 6 “Maroon.”
Sneakerheads probably recall that the “Sport Blue” colorway of the had surprisingly returned last year, which happened for the very first time since Jordan Brand had originally dropped it. Now it seems that same is happening in the case of the “Maroon” iteration and it is about time this colorway made its comeback. Originally, this “Maroon” rendition of the Air Jordan 6 had made its retail debut back in 1991, which means that almost 21 years have passed since this sneaker for last up for grabs. Ever since then, numerous sneaker collectors had been patiently waiting and even losing hope that this colorway would ever be re-released, but that day has finally arrived.
Overall, this OG classic is a very minimalistic iteration of the Air Jordan 6, which is quite plain and simple. Matching its original counterpart, this sneaker comprises of an almost entirely white leather upper, but the upper also features beautiful contrast in the form of Maroon accents visible on the heel, lace lock, midsole, and tongue. The midsole even contains an air unit and an icy white tonal outsole adds the finishing touch. Last but not least, Jordanheads will be astonished to spot the Nike Air logo that the heel sports.
The fact of the matter is that the classic Air Jordan 6 “Maroon” was expected to arrive that retailers last year since it has the model’s 23rd Anniversary, but then sneakerheads can be glad that they are not amongst the Jordan 2016 releases. While it is not yet certain when exactly this sneaker is arriving, but it will likely be possible to cop it one of the upcoming Jordan release dates 2015.
