Back in 2000, there was an Air Jordan VI “Infrared” sample dubbed “Reverse Infrared” or for the OG heads, the “Butchered Infrared”, that surfaced around the same time the release version hit retailers. The sample featured an Infrared Nike Air on the heel, replacing the black stitching found on the regular version, with the addition of a full Infrared midsole. These joints are extremely hard to come by but on a few occasions, you can still find these in tact. The pair you see here has been sole swapped and is definitely wearable so for those interested in purchasing, you can head over Ebay and Buy them Now
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 10 years, you can already tell what these Air Jordan VI’s were inspired by – that is if you’ve ever seen a pair of UNKLE’s (or owned).

Everything including the artwork has been added on these retro’s, including white laces and a black midsole. Let us know your thoughts on these customs after the jump.
