Commercial Success of the Air Jordan 6
During the 1991 Playoffs, Jordan wore the Black/Infrared colorway. The sneakers were advertised through a series of black-and-white commercials featuring director Spike Lee as the character Mars Blackmon. One of these spots included Rock & Roll Hall of Fame musician Little Richard as a genie who turns Mars Blackmon into Michael Jordan. The NBA superstar also wore the White/Carmine colorway in a popular Gatorade commercial that introduced the "Like Mike" theme song.
Rappers and hip-hop artists have also embraced the Air Jordan 6. In 2004, Kanye West wore the Black/Infrared AJ 6 in his All Falls Down music video. Other musicians who have collaborated on the shoe include Travis Scott and Macklemore, the latter having an exclusive, limited quantity run created for friends and family that never got released at retail.
Jordan 6 Retro All Star - Chameleon 2017
Nike introduced the Air Jordan 6 Retro All Star 2017 Chameleon during the 2017 NBA All-Star game. Premium leather defines the shoe's silhouette from the toe box to the collar, with perforations on the midfoot for added visual texture and breathability. The upper's dominant color is black, but an iridescent treatment reflects bluish-green-purple undertones from various angles, giving the shoe its signature name. The Tinker Hatfield design boasts Nike Air technology for optimal cushioning. Air Jordan 6 Retro All Star 2017 Chameleon dropped alongside similar Air Jordan 1 'Chameleon' and Air Jordan 31 'Chameleon' shoes.
