Continuing the concept of <a href="http://www.newjordans2016.net/">New
Jordans 2016</a> that weren't original colorways but look like they could have been, the Air Jordan 6 "Alternate" drops this weekend. Looking like something somewhere in between the OG "Maroon" Air Jordan 6 and the "Hare" Air Jordan 7, the new colorway features a light grey synthetic nubuck base with perforated white leather paneling and Gym Red accents, while special "1991" text is stitched on the inner tongue. The Air Jordan 6 "Alternate '91" differentiates itself from past models courtesy of micro perforations throughout much of the upper. Pure Platinum resides at the base with white leather overlays cascading overtop. Dressed in a White, Pure Platinum, and Gum Red color scheme. This Air Jordan 6 represents what Michael Jordan would have worn during his 1991 playoff run. Completing the shoe is the year ‘1991’ on the inner tongue and translucent soles.
Air Jordan Shoes</a>, The latest incarnation of the Air Jordan 6 sports Michael Jordan's team colourways. The "Alternate '91" features no ‘Nike Air’ branding but instead, a new micro-perforated leather contrasts a Pure Platinum nubuck while Gym Red accents and an icy outsole devoid of that added blue tint create an homage to Jordan Brand's early 1991 treatments. Jordan Brand's mode of operation has been fairly simple to follow as of late. The Jumpman either gives us new ambitious and luxurious lifestyle creations atop their signature series or trace things back to the origins and break out unreleased sample colorways that could have been. Additional detailing includes toggle lacing system and durable heel pull tab, finished off with translucent outsole detailing with Visible Air to the heel. The year 1991 is stitched onto the inner tongue lining, paying tribute to the year the silhouette originally released. The "Alternate '91" AJ 6 is constructed with a Pure Platinum leather base and white leather overlays. Gym Red decorates this sneaker on the tongue, lace lock, liner, and pull tab. White Jordan branding hits the silhouette on the lace lock, tongue, heel, and insole. The sole unit features red, white and semi-translucent construction to stand out on the street.
2017</a> told designer Tinker Hatfield to be sure the AJ 6 had a clean toe, so Tinker reinforced the area around the toe to deliver on Jordan's order. MJ also did not want a heel tab to touch his Achilles tendon, so the silhouette was designed with a molded heel tab and two holes in the tongue to assist in putting on the sneaker. The AJ 6 also saw the return of a solid rubber outsole, due to complaints of the AJ 5 having a slippery sole. Along with a perforated upper, Tinker had a stylized "23" stitched on as the overlays on this silhouette. There's no "Nike Air" branding on this Air Jordan 6 "Alternate", but instead, a new micro-perforated leather contrasts a Pure Platinum nubuck while Gym Red accents and an icy outsole devoid of that added blue tint create an homage to Jordan Brand's early 1991 treatments. There's a certain Hare-like appearance on this model that didn't come until the next signature installment. 1991 is even stitched onto the inner tongue lining in an effort to pay homage to the year this model originally released.
