As Jordan heads should already know, the Air Jordan 6 Retro “LA Lakers” will be releasing online in just a few hours and in-stores in the early AM. If you didn’t order yourself a pair yesterday throughout SneakerBum when we reported on the availability of the shoes along with the Air Jordan 2 Retro QF “Chicago Bulls” your chance will be coming soon. Using black suede around the toe area and side panels with reflective 3M material on the rest of the upper, Jordan Brand uses contrast stitching throughout the shoes in purple and gold to bright forth the Los Angeles Lakers theme.
If your wondering, why a Lakers-esque colorway on the Air Jordan VI, it’s quite simple really. Out of Michael Jordan’s six NBA championships his first came back in ‘ 91when he and the Bulls defeated Magic Johnson and the Lakers. Before the Finals, Jordan and the Bulls defeated the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference Championship, hence the release of the Air Jordan 6 “Detroit Pistons” last month in April. It’s all about timing here people.
