Unboxing: Air Jordan 6

As one of the classic colorways created by Air Jordan, the “North Carolina” blue is as widely enjoyed as the “Chicago” and the “black and red”, which is beyond question. Earlier this year, it has been announced that a pair of “North Carolina” Air Jordan 6 would be released, which, however, was delayed. In spite of that, it will definitely be launched and live up to the waiting of its fans.

The overall appearance of the shoes is eye-pleasing, if not eye-catching. The toe and part of the vamp are complemented by “North Carolina” blue abrasive leather whereas the other parts of the vamp are decorated with white leather.

What’s more thrilling to AJ fans is that there is another colorway of AJ6 besides the above “North Carolina”, the former being more inviting in its appearance. Actually, this one is a player version for the University of North Carolina, from which we can get a glimpse of the brand’s originality and sincerity.

The vamp of this colorway is mostly covered by “North Carolina” blue while the tongue and midsole are coated with darker blue, more visually appealing.

The iconic “North Carolina” embroidery Logo at the heel distinguishes the shoes from others.

The white midsole matches very well with the ivory crystal outsole, which looks very simple but very fashionable at the meantime. From my point of view, it is one of the most nice-looking shoes I’ve ever seen. But regrading a shoe’s appearance, it has always been a matter of opinion.


As a pair of shoes that got a lot of attention long before they hit the market, this “North Carolina” blue is set to be the preferential choice of many people, in spite of the fact that many of them are to be disappointed for not getting it. However, since it hasn’t been launched, we still have a ray of hope of copping one pair.
