Jordan 6 Samples the Travis Scott Olive Colorway

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 Retro Sample x Travis Scott Olive

In collaboration with Houston-based rapper Travis Scott, the Air Jordan brand released the Olive Retro colorway on the Jordan 6 silhouette. This high-top sneaker features a medium olive nubuck and suede upper with overlays, eyelets, laces, and accents of the same color. Scott's signature Cactus Jack logo is stamped into the right heel, and the Nike Air logo is found on the left heel; both are in University Red. Red appears again on the heel tab and on the shoe's bottom, where an oversized Jordan brand Jumpman logo can be found surrounded by a glow-in-the-dark translucent outsole. The first glimpse of this design was given during the Super Bowl 53 halftime show, and it was released to the general public on October 11th, 2019.
