This is For The Girls With Gusto: Air Jordan 6 Retro

To really grasp the sneaker significance of the Jordan Retro 6, we have to go back to the beginning. It all started when the Air Jordan VI came out in 1991, with a Porsche-inspired pull tab, Vis-Air unit and internal bootie. After MJ won both the league and finals MVP in these kicks, their status shot to a whole new level. Paying homage to those classic sneakers, the Jordan Retro 6 incorporates the same iconic elements but offers some fresh visual accents. Sporting the same comfortable midsole cushioning, a unique traction pattern on the sole for maximum performance and perforated details for a dope look, this is footwear fit for a legend.

Since the initial release, these sneakers have come out in a multitude of colorways - including some that cater to littler feet. Fortunately for the younger generation, the latest GS edition is bolder than ever. Against a sleek Game Royal leather upper, Lucid Green laces look nearly electric. Pops of Vivid Pink on the Jumpman logo, heel tab and laces toggles lend a feminine twist while the traditional translucent outsole grounds the scheme and brings back some balance.

Pick up a pair for yourself - or your favorite lady - March 15, when they hit Jimmy Jazz store shelves and the website for $120.

How does this colorway compare to the Valentine's Day edition?
