Going by the handle on Instagram, princess_of_dopeness dropped the news that the Maroon Air Jordan 6 would release. We would typically hold off on this since we have got our hopes up in the past. Plus we don’t want to stir up to much commotion and it not be true. Not long after, zSneakerheadz almost confirmed the release along with BaltSneakerShow, two Nike and Jordan Brand informants who always gets it right. So could the rumor actually be fact?
The Maroon Jordan 6 will feature a white upper with hits of perforation on the paneling. Maroon accents line up on the midsole, tongue and heel tab and Jumpman logo feature on the tongue, sole and insole. Other details include a translucent outsole while the biggest news here is Nike Air branding will return on the heel and insole.
We can’t verify if this image used is the actual release of the 2015 Air Jordan 6 Maroons or a Photoshop. We can say it’s not the original release which took place in 1991. The midsole and sole on the OG’s would be yellowed from over the years. It’s worth noting that the supposed 2015 release color of ‘Maroon’ is off from the original which was a bit more bright.
