Jordan Lift Off Style

As a lifestyle equivalent of the Air Jordan VI, the Jordan Lift Off exhibits a bulky-looking silhouette due to the perforated padding along the heel area and synthetic leather overlays. Similar to other basketball-inspired casual kicks, the Jordan Lift Off is suited best when it is paired with denim shorts or skinny jeans. Try this high-top with baggy denim shorts and a graphic shirt to bring out its sporty appeal in full display.  

Notable Features

The Jordan Lift Off has a cushy foam midsole and Air-Sole heel unit that delivers cushioning and impact protection. Its outsole showcases a herringbone pattern that offers supreme traction.

Jordan Lift Off History

The Air Jordan VI is regarded as one of the most symbolic sneakers among the Air Jordan series. It debuted during the time Michael Jordan won his first NBA championship and first Finals MVP. Released in 1991, it was introduced in five distinctive color schemes, the White / Infrared-Black, Black/ Infrared-Black, Off White / New Maroon, White / Sport Blue-Black, and White / Carmine-Black.

Jordan himself imposed that the AJ VI must have a clean toe, to which the famous Nike designer Tinker Hatfield is more than happy to oblige. Hatfield designed the Air Jordan VI to have reinforcements on the toe area, making it the first Jordan sneaker or basketball shoe in general to exhibit this feature. Hatfield also designed two perforations at the top of the tongue, and one loop on its back. He called these modifications a "spoiler."
