One of the very few Air Jordans from the first years that have never been retroed, the white/maroon Air Jordan VI was a sleeper from the start. Not a colorway that would have been worn by MJ on the court, yet not flashy enough to hit hard on the streets, the white/maroon VIs were most often found on the courts — exactly where they were supposed to be. The white-on-white "Nike Air" embroidery on the heels was the final subtle touch.
