Jordan Brand Concluded 2016 With The Air Jordan 6 “Black Cat” & “Purple Dynasty”

Jordan Brand concluded their Jordan releases of 2016 by dropping two different colorways of the Air Jordan 6. One of the two, the Air Jordan 6 “Purple Dynasty,” was a GG-/GS-exclusive release. It was even somewhat special and unique since its uppers were made up of suede and were entirely dressed up in Purple, including the branding, inner linings, laces, midsoles and outsoles. Subtle hits of White were also present, namely over the “Jumpman” logo on each lace lock and on the midsoles/outsoles. However, the more popular of the two final colorways of 2016 that sneakerheads was undoubtedly the Air Jordan 6 “Black Cat.”

air-jordan-6-2Many are probably glad, while others are perhaps even find it hard to believe that 2017 has already kicked off. Of course, the release of the Air Jordan 6 “Black Cat” makes it more than obvious. Sneakerheads had been reading about impending arrival of this sneaker since earlier in 2016. Sneakerheads may or may not know this, but this was certainly not Jordan Brand’s first Black Cat-themed release. After all, Michael Jordan had this nickname ever since he was a rising star in the NBA. Back in 2006, Jordan Brand had dropped the Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat,” and in 2007, the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cat” hit the shelves.

Even before the Air Jordan 6 “Black Cat” was unveiled, sneakerheads already knew what to expect in terms of what this sneaker was going to look like. As its “Black Cat” nickname suggests, this sneaker’s leather uppers are dressed up completely in Black. Even the midsoles and outsoles are covered in Black. The only visible contrasting touch that can be spotted on this sneaker are the plain White-colored accents that are visible on top of the midsoles.

Similarly, the Air Jordan 6 “Black Cat” also hit the shelves on the same day, but it was and perhaps still is available at a price of $190 at retailers like Champs Sports, Eastbay, Finish Line, Foot Locker, Kixify and Nike.com.
