The Release of the Jordan 6 Olympic

Michael Jordan won his first NBA championship while wearing the Air Jordan 6. Designed by Tinker Hatfield and originally released in 1991, the Air Jordan 6 had five original colorways in its first run:

The original retail price on the AJ 6 was $125. It was revived in 2000 and brought back many times-in 2002, 2006, 2010, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020-through new retros and limited-edition collaborations.

Commercial Success of the Air Jordan 6

During the 1991 Playoffs, Jordan wore the Black/Infrared colorway. The sneakers were advertised through a series of black-and-white commercials featuring director Spike Lee as the character Mars Blackmon. One of these spots included Rock & Roll Hall of Fame musician Little Richard as a genie who turns Mars Blackmon into Michael Jordan. The NBA superstar also wore the White/Carmine colorway in a popular Gatorade commercial that introduced the "Like Mike" theme song.

Rappers and hip-hop artists have also embraced the Air Jordan 6. In 2004, Kanye West wore the Black/Infrared AJ 6 in his All Falls Down music video. Other musicians who have collaborated on the shoe include Travis Scott and Macklemore, the latter having an exclusive, limited quantity run created for friends and family that never got released at retail.

Jordan 6 Olympic

The Jordan 6 Olympic blue sneakers were first released in 2000, and in 2012, the classic colorway returned. The 2012 Jordan 6 Olympic was released on July 7, 2012. The sneakers feature a white and navy leather upper with red accents seen on the lace and the "Jumpman” logo on the back of the shoe. The 2012 version also includes more navy blue on the midsole than the original release. The Jordan 6 Olympic Midnight Navy is supported with an icy translucent outsole. The Jordan 6 Olympic price has increased drastically since its release in 2012 due to the shoe's collectibility, and it continues to go up with time.
