History:

It was obvious that Michael Jordan was dominating the NBA with his remarkable talent and skill. During the 1990-1991 season, Michael Jordan finally accomplished the ultimate goal—an NBA Championship. The previous years before Jordan one his first championship, he was coming close to winning, but would fall short every time. Jordan was still dominating the league but could not get his own team over the hump, facing teams like the Celtics and the Pistons, which were tough. Jordan had to reach a level of maturity and mental toughness in order to get his team a ring and finally did so in the 1990-1991 season.

The Air Jordan VI holds a special significance to it because of the amount of work that Jordan had to put in, in order to win his first championship. It was a tough road to glory, but luckily Jordan had a solid shoe like the Air Jordan VI, which gave him support through a rigorous season.
