Air Jordan 6 Alternate
Size Run: Mens
Color:White/Pure Platinum-Gym Red
Release Date:March 11, 2017
But what exactly makes these shoes so special? For one thing – they have a very classic and sport feel to them that appeal to practically everyone. Sure, all Jordan releases are essentially sport shoes – but the Air Jordan 6 “Alternate” has a different vibe to it. Offering a combination of white and red colors, we won’t find it surprising if a professional player actually chooses this during a game.
It’s a much layered look for the alternate with majority of the shoes done in white. The red is actually confined mostly to the accents of the shoes, particularly the tops and the sides. The tongue is done completely in red with a white Jumpman logo on the center. The laces are flat and plain white – making them very easy to replace should you find the need to.
Creating a classic design, Air Jordan decided to emphasize the layered look of the shoes. With this approach, the body is done completely in white but with still some depth and texture to the exterior. There’s also the distinctive stitching and the air holes which is more than typical. No doubt – these shoes are made for an active lifestyle as it offers sufficient room for air to circulate.
On top of the tongue are the words JORDAN embossed onto the red. The bad news is that the letters are just slightly rising and can be tough to decipher. The good news is that they’re distinctive and not something you can easily find in Jordan models. To wrap up the look, there’s also a red lace lock with the Jumpman icon placed with the shoes. You may not need the lace lock, but it certainly completes the ensemble.
The trim seems to be a darker shade of grey so subtle you’ll have to look closely in order to notice it. The soles are kept white with a little streak of red for the midsole. To wrap it all up is a stitched Jumpman logo on the heels.
