Tinker Hatfield’s impact on the Air Jordan signature line is immeasurable, particularly in the colorway department. Who else would put elephant skin print or 3M Scotchlite on a sneaker?
The same guy that put red Durabuck on Michael Jordan’s sixth signature shoe.
Air Jordan 6 “Carmine” – White/Carmine-Black, properly – released in 1991 as perhaps the most overt Chicago Bulls colorway done up to that point. Hatfield made use of the shoe’s so-called negative space by filling it with that deep crimson, then signed off with some black accenting.
Jordan wore the Carmine 6 for home and away games from November 1991 through February 1992, when he debuted Air Jordan 7 Bordeaux at the All-Star Game.
Let us know where the Carmines rank in your personal favorites.
