After plenty of rumors about the shoe's return, it looks like the "Maroon" Air Jordan 6 is coming back this year after all.
What makes the reissue of the original colorway all the more exciting is the fact that the leaked pairs have the "Nike Air" branding on the back – a detail that hasn't been seen on the shoe since the 2000 version of the "Black/Infrared" Jordan 6.
The Jordan release date for the "Maroon" Jordan 6 retro is set for Saturday, Dec. 5.
