What We’re Saying: Nike has officially announced that the Air Jordan 6 “Carmine” will be released on February 13. The sneaker was first rumored last year and has been hotly-anticipated, as it features “Nike Air” branding on the heel instead of the Jordan Jumpman logo.

As has been the case with other Air Jordans that have been retroed over the past few years, this “Carmine” release will stay as true to the 1991 original as possible. Everything from the colors, to the shape, materials, and Nike Air logo on the heel have been carefully put together to mimick the original.

While the drop is top of most sneakerhead’s cop lists this week, the release hasn’t been without its issues. News has emerged that part of the stock delivered to retailers is defective and needs to be returned. As @zSneakerHeadz revealed on Instagram (below), parts of the midsole that are meant to be white, are in fact pink.

Complex reached out to Jordan Brand for comment, who was quick to respond: “A small amount of the Air Jordan 6 Carmine product did not meet our standards for consumers. Jordan Brand is working quickly with our retail partners to rectify this.”

While Jordan Brand is working to get all of the pairs back, there are likely some that have already made their way into the hands of customers. StockX has already posted a disclaimer on its “Carmine” Air Jordan 6 site, where pairs are being sold early, telling buyers that the shoe may feature the slightly pink midsole.

The Air Jordan 6, in which Michael Jordan won his first NBA championship, celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Nike will likely place a large emphasis on the silhouette, as it has with the Air Jordan 5, 4, and 3 before it.
