The Air Jordan VI is a special sneaker for several reasons, the biggest being because it’s the shoe Michael Jordan wore when he won his first NBA Championship. So, it comes as no surprise that the announcement of the two “Infrared” colorways being re-released as a pack has stirred up quite the buzz amongst sneaker fans. The long wait for the opportunity to own that pack will end soon. At 12:00 a.m. EST, Eastbay will open its virtual doors, giving you the opportunity to purchase the Air Jordan Retro 6 “Infrared Pack.” The pack features both the Black/Infrared and White/Infrared Air Jordan Retro 6 colorways, and comes complete with a double-tray pull out box and anti-static bags that provide extra protection to diminish the oxidization process. As time winds down, make sure you’re near your computer. The pack is available in limited quantities.
To celebrate the event, we got together with members of the Sole Collector forum for the latest edition of Sole Shots. They contributed great images of the Air Jordan 6, both original and retro. The way the infrared color pops off the shoe makes it very photogenic and a favorite amongst sneaker photographers. Click the images for a larger view and be sure to let us know what you think!
