Air Jordan 6 Oreo's

The Air Jordan 6 Oreo's were released in late 1990, designed by Tinker Hatfield. Jordan won his first NBA championship wearing these shoes. The heel of the shoe took inspiration from Michael Jordan's slant-nosed Porsche. In 2000, an Olympic color was released  with a combination of white, royal blue, and a hint of red so the colors would represent U.S.A. This shoe had the number 9 on them because of Michael Jordan's Olympic number. Nike released a second Olympic color of all-white with a patent leather upper, black tongue and all of the Olympic Rings colors on the mid-sole. The Olympic color-way will be re-released in 2011 by Jordan Inc.
