Sneaker Focus: Air Jordan 6 Retro 'Black Cat'

Want to step into the new year in style? Then you should probably read this.

The Air Jordan 6. An extremely defined shoe for a momentous moment in Michael Jordan’s career, they are the sneaks MJ wore for the season he won his first NBA title. First released in 1991 the 6’s have been host to some iconic colourways such as the OG Infrareds & Carmine White.

The 6’s were the first basketball sneakers to receive a reinforced toe box, the second Jordan model to have a translucent outsole. MJ also wanted to position the heel tab so it avoided his Achilles' tendon, making the Jordan 6 the first shoe to have any sort of moulded structure on the back. Even the spoiler on the back and the holes in the tongue are designed to allow the wearer to slip into them. So it is obvious that these sneakers are highly innovative and full of technology, providing the wearer with convenience, durability, comfort and obviously mad heat on the court.

This time they have received the extremely popular 'Black Cat' makeover, making them the fourth Jordan model to receive this colourway, following the Jordan 3’s, 4’s & 30's. Donning an all black leather upper with perforations in the toe box, ankle and lateral sections of the kicks. These Jordan’s feature a highly distinctive 3M detailing throughout the perforations and on the Black Cat logo on the insole and even in the rope lacing, this will definitely make the shoes stand out in the night as it imitates cat’s eyes lighting up in the night. The white accents on the mudguard differ from the previous 'Black Cat' releases and bring a fresh look. The translucent black sole is made from solid rubber which provides the sneaks with less slip, meaning you can be flexible on the court.

To make this release that extra bit special Team Soleheaven have created a graphic print, with a minimal aesthetic, to accompany the 'Black Cat 6' launch. This numbered print edition is a gift from us, and only available with purchase.

Releasing at 08:00GMT on 31/12/16
