Who should buy the Air Jordan 6

Like many Air Jordan Retros, the AJ 6 is going to be most appreciated by people who won't play in it. Yes, it still has the chops that once made it great, but today's game has already seen a lot of better and cheaper techs. Though still functional, the AJ 6 just cannot compare anymore performance-wise.

Who should NOT buy the Air Jordan 6

Quite frankly, anyone who has tried playing in more modern shoe options will surely have something negative to say about the AJ6. They are better off buying non-retro options from the Jordan brand. The 36th Air Jordan is an excellent pick.

Really grippy on clean courts

On pristine courts, the traction of the Air Jordan 6 worked pretty well.

The outsole needed frequent wiping on dusty courts, though.

Looks that can turn heads? The AJ 6 surely has it!

Like other retro Jordans, such as the AJ 11 and AJ 12, the Air Jordan VI is very stylish. It sports a clean look that is bound to turn heads on and off the hardwood.

The Air Jordan 6 has minimal cushioning

These retro Jordan basketball shoes had minimal cushioning, and it can be felt most especially during on-court action. There shouldn't be any problems wearing this casually, though.
