No matter the occasion, the biggest center stage is set with the first thing that steps on the court. The Air Jordan 6 “Carmines” are no exception to this rule. Jordan, looking for ways to change his game after his grueling defeat against the Detroit Pistons in the 1990 Eastern Conference Finals, focused his attention on adding more muscle to his body.

Nike SB Dunk Low "Carhartt" Black

It’s no surprise to see Nike going back to its hard-nosed, industrial roots by teaming up with a company like Carhartt for its inspiration on these Dunks. The Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Carhartt” Pack consisted of two very simple colorways of Shale and Black. With all the crazy releases in 2004 such as the Jedi’s, Cali’s, and Hemp packs; Nike decided to switch it up when it released these classic silhouettes with such a simple placement of color choice.
