Air Jordan VI "Black/Infrared"
Year (of Sneaker): 1991
Before the Fresh Prince was a style icon there was Kadeem Harrison from A Different World who played Sidney's sidekick in the movie. Kadeem was known for always being up-to-date on his kicks and how could a hoops flick be relevant without the latest Jordans? A little bit of this, a little bit of that and with the stroke of a pen the Jordan VI is born. Aside from the heel tab that was inspired by Michael Jordan’s Porsche, this Jordan makeup was more of a Tinker Hatfield showcase including something from most of his designs; Translucent soles, Visible Air in the sole (Tinker’s baby), and it wouldn’t be a Jordan without new additions like the two-hole pull on the tongue which allowed for easy entry.
