Jordan Shoes coloring pages – Michael Jordan’s documentary “The Last Dance” is mostly about the Chicago Bulls in the 1997/98 season. Precisely when Michael Jordan won the sixth NBA title in his career.
However, several episodes of this film also display important moments throughout the legend’s career. What Michael Jordan wore when he won the title stole a bit of attention. Six different shoes are used when getting the championship title.
The Nike Air Jordan 1 has been named the most influential shoe and determines Michael Jordan’s career. But AJ1 never brought its “master” to the title. There are the following six shoes, which managed to deliver Michael Jordan to get six NBA championship rings.
Nike Air Jordan 6 “Infrared” – First Title (1991)
Michael Jordan won his first NBA title wearing the Nike Air Jordan 6. The shoe was designed by Tinker Hatfield and released in 1991. It is one of the iconic sneakers in the Air Jordan lineup. At that time Michael Jordan wore black and red or what is known as “Infrared”. When wearing these shoes, Michael Jordan could average 31.2 points, 11.4 assists, and 6.6 rebounds per game in the 1991 NBA Finals.
The color of this shoe is inspired by Jordan’s Porsche 911. Hatfield fulfilled Jordan’s desire to be able to add tabs in the heel. This allowed Jordan to open and put on his shoes more easily.
AJ6 marked a turning point in its achievements. Because previously, for seven years competing in the NBA with special abilities, Jordan has not been able to win the title. Signs of winning were also seen in the Eastern Conference Finals when the Bulls crushed the Detroit Pistons. At that time, the Pistons had become a thorn in Jordan’s career. Then in the 1991 NBA Finals, the Bulls defeated the Los Angeles Lakers who had been strengthened by Magic Johnson and James Worthy.
Nike Air Jordan 7 “Raptors” – Second Place (1992) 1992 was a special year for Michael Jordan. He managed to win the 1992 NBA title, which put him level with Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Isaiah Thomas. Michael Jordan completed the year by winning the regular-season MVP and Finals MVP titles. In addition, he managed to lead the United States national team to get a gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.
During the 1992 NBA playoffs, Jordan played with an Air Jordan 7 in the color “Black/True Red”, which later became known by another name “Raptors”. Purple and red colors adorn the dominant black shoes. Matches the identical colors belonging to the Toronto Raptors team.
At the Barcelona Olympics, Michael Jordan’s star aura shines even more. This was the first Olympics to allow the inclusion of active professional players in the NBA. Finally, the United States fielded the best NBA players who became known as the “Dream Team”.
The AJ7 is also the shoe worn by Warner Bros. character, Bugs Bunny. This further strengthens the dominance of Air Jordan shoes off the field.
Nike Air Jordan 8 “Playoffs” – Third Place (1993)
Michael Jordan became a world basketball icon with AJ7. But with Air Jordan 8, he established himself as the ruler of the NBA. In 1993, the Chicago Bulls became the third NBA team in history to win three consecutive championships. Michael Jordan became the first player to win the Finals MVP title three seasons in a row.
The AJ8 used is black and red. This color became known as the “Playoffs”. This shoe also underwent a design change. If the AJ6 and AJ7 look slim, then the AJ8 is a little thicker. This is because there are two crossed straps on the front which were adopted from Nike Air Raid.
Nike Air Jordan 11 “Bred” – Fourth Title (1996)
When Michael Jordan returned from his first retirement in the middle of the 1994/95 season, he wore the Air Jordan 10. Then Nike presented the Air Jordan 11 design. Although Nike had not initially approved the design, Jordan at that time liked it. So the AJ11 became the shoe used by Michael Jordan in the 1995/96 season. It turned out to be a surprising result. Michael Jordan won his fourth title, as well as started the second half of the great dynasty of the Chicago Bulls.
Jordan wore the color “Concord” during the regular season. Dominant white with black accents. But during the 1996 NBA Finals against the Seattle Supersonics, Jordan appeared in black and red, or better known as “Bred”.
The AJ11 was designed by Tinker Hatfield. This shoe became one of Michael Jordan’s favorites. This is the first time using patent leather. Off the field, the AJ11 is also famous for being used by Michael Jordan in the movie Space Jam. Until now, every time it is re-released, the AJ11 is always in demand in the market.
Nike Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” – Fifth Place Title (1997)

While suffering from the flu, Michael Jordan was able to score 38 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists against the Utah Jazz. The black and red Air Jordan 12 he wore became known as the “AJ12 Flu Game”.
The combination of red and black is indeed attached to Michael Jordan. All the shoes used when winning the championship title wore the same combination. But for the Air Jordan 12, this is different. Instead, Michael Jordan lifted the Larry O’Brien trophy using a pair of black and white AJ12s, also known as “Taxi”. This is the first time in the history of champion Michael Jordan without being accompanied by black and red.
Nike Air Jordan 14 “Last Shot” – Sixth Title (1998)

Jordan wore the AJ14 in the fourth and sixth games. In the sixth game, Jordan scored the last shot or “Last Shot” which is legendary to this day.
Because the shoes are just examples, people have to be willing to wait six months to get them. To be precise, the AJ14 was released to the market in March 1999. It turned out that the effect was extraordinary, this shoe became more famous than the previous release. The combination of black and red was finally given the name “Last Shot”.
