Air Jordan Retro 6 VI Olympic 2008
Olympic 2008 Beijing Version of the Jordan VI
The Air Jordan VI was to the V what the IV was to the III—the return of the same basic silhouette with a bunch of added-on plastic and rubber. The strip of leather across the toe disappeared—not to return until the X—and the 3M tongue sadly disappeared. The VI may have the distinction of being the easiest Air Jordan to put on, thanks to its rubber loop on the heel and complementary finger holes in the tongue. The clear outsole rubber remained, just with more of a zig-zag pattern, and circular holes for traction rather than the V’s traditional herringbone.
