The Air Jordan 6 is one of the most classic shoes in the Jordan Brand library. It was the shoe Michael Jordan won his first NBA championship in, sporting the infamous "infrared" colorway. With the shoe's history in mind, it only makes sense that Jordan Brand would continue to update the classic silhouette with new schemes. Thanks to the "Flint" colorway, which pays homage to the Jordan 7 in the same color, the brand is keeping the Jordan 6 going strong.

Official images and a brand new release date have been released of the Air Jordan 6 "Flint." The shoe itself has a white leather base, with grey suede throughout the upper of the sneaker. The midsole is white with black accents, and the Jordan 6's signature icy bottom, complemented by an air bubble on the back heel. Just like the Jordan 7 version, there are hints of purple throughout. The Jumpman logo on the back is purple, while the tongue and lace lock has hints of purple as well.

These brand new 6's will be releasing on January 12th at usual Jordan Brand retailers and will be going for $190 USD according to Sneaker News.
