Creator of the Air Jordan 6

The Air Jordan 6 was designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield and was released in 1991. This is a special Air Jordan sneaker because Michael Jordan won his first championship while wearing the Air Jordan 6. The AJ6 is one of Jordan Brand’s most iconic styles, and its popularity continues to resonate with sneakerheads today. Virgil Abloh, who is one of the most important designers and fashion icons in the world to this day, mentioned in the past that he considers the 6 as one of his favorite Jordans of all time.

A goodbye sneaker

The Air Jordan 6 was the last Air Jordan to be designed by Tinker Hatfield. He partially based the design of the Jordan 6 on Michael Jordan’s love of cars, which would continue with future Air Jordan sneakers. There is a rubber tongue with finger loops, and the 6 also came with lace locks. It had a heel tab and an inner booty sleeve as part of the design. Tinker was on an unbelievable roll in 1991; he was consistently creating some of the most iconic sneakers Nike and Jordan Brand have ever released.

A genius design

The true genius of Tinker Hatfield was that he could mix revolutionary aesthetics with top-of-the-line performance. It’s one of the main reasons why his shoes are still so adored today; people still see players in the NBA wearing them today. And there might be a chance that you are going to cop these as well. So be sure to check out all the colorways above and decide for yourself!
