Model: Air Jordan 6 “Infrared”
Key Features: A mostly black leather upper with infrared detailing on the tongue and midsole, Nike Air branding on the heel, full-length Max Air unit in the sole, visible Air bubble in the heel, and high-top construction.
Release Date: Rumored to be early 2019
Editor’s Notes: We’re only halfway through 2018 and already we’re looking forward to 2019 — typical sneakerheads, huh? But the news that the iconic Air Jordan 6 “Infrared” might be coming back with “Nike Air” across its heel is just too good to ignore.
According to notorious Instagram leaker @pinoe77, Jordan Brand has lined up the “Infrared” AJ6 as one of its major releases in 2019. For the first time since 2000, the sneaker will sport its original branding in place of the Jordan Jumpman on the heel.
The colorway was retroed in 2010 as part of the “Infrared Pack” and then again in 2014 as a standalone release. Check out the mockup below and leave your thoughts on its possible release in the comments.
