Jordan VI Maroon

For the first time since 2000, the Air Jordan 6 is being released with its original Nike Air branding on the heel. First to get the treatment is the original “Maroon” colorway, which is being retroed for the first time next month.

Expected to be one of the year’s most coveted¬†releases, the “Maroon” Air Jordan 6 has already hit the counterfeit market in a big way. To make sure you don’t get burned, Fake Education returns with a breakdown detailing some difference between real and fake pairs.

Fake Education: “The stitching of the Jumpman on the lacing pad of the fakes looks a lot different. On the real pair, the Jumpman looks more like the actual Jumpman logo, whereas the fake pair looks like a thick stick figure. Hard to explain in words but easier to understand by looking at the 2.”
