The Air Jordan 6 Yellow Ochre

The Air Jordan 6 “Yellow Ochre” is coming to Shoe Palace stores and on this January 27.

Yellow Ochre

The Air Jordan 6 returns in the form of the “Yellow Ochre.” This silhouette has a white, yellow ochre, and black color makeup. There is an eye-catching icy outsole. There are black accents on the classic Jordan branding, like on the tongue and heel tab.


The Air Jordan VI was designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield and was released in 1991. This is a special Air Jordan sneaker because Michael Jordan won his first championship while wearing the Air Jordan VI. The VI is one of Jordan Brand’s most iconic styles. It continues to resonate with sneakerheads and is still getting retro releases to this day. The late Virgil Abloh, who is one of the most important designers and fashion icons in the world, mentioned in the past that the 6 is his favorite Jordan shoe.

Thanks to Tinker Hatfield, the VI was filled with notable design elements. Hatfield partially based the design of the Jordan 6 on MJ’s love of cars. That automobile inspiration would continue with future Air Jordan sneakers. There is a rubber tongue with finger loops and the VI also came with lace locks. It had a heel tab and an inner booty sleeve as part of the design. Tinker was on an unbelievable roll in 1991. He was consistently creating some of the most iconic sneakers Nike and Jordan Brand have ever released. The true genius of Tinker Hatfield was that he could mix revolutionary aesthetics with top of the line performance. It’s one of the main reasons why his shoes are still so adored today. Tinker has a knack for making shoes that work equally well on and off the basketball court. It’s why you still see players in the NBA today wearing the Air Jordan 6.


The Air Jordan VI had an original retail price of $125 when it dropped in 1991. It was originally available in five colorways. The White and Black colorways are of course beloved. The “Carmine” colorway is an iconic Air Jordan model. The “Sport Blue” and “Maroon” aren’t as celebrated but are colorways fans know and appreciate. Originally no low versions of the VI were made. In 2002 low versions of the VI were released by the Jordan Brand.
