Many of you may be looking forward to the Air Jordan IV ‘White/Cement’ or even the Air Jordan XII ‘Playoffs’, but don’t overlook the re-issue of one of the most sought after Air Jordans out there – the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ that first dropped back in 2000. While Michael himself never wore this particular colorway (Ray Allen did during the 2000 Olympics), the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after Air Jordans of all-time, with the ’00 release fetching over $500. Sneaker News confirmed the release of these bad boys last week, but now we have a first look at the actual upcoming release. Check out the pics, wipe your drool, and let us know what you think in the comments section below. via US11.

The first Jordan to have puffy laces was the 13 so how the f&^k is puffy laces on a VI considered "OG"???

This is what the initial sample looked like from 2000. Plus we getting the inital DMP sample as well. This makes sense.

wonder what type of BS i'm gonna have to go thru to get these and the 4's and the playoffs for that matter i just copped the 10's but it was some BS i had to run like i was in a track meet cause they only had 18 pair where i was at.. i tried to get em online but all the sites crashed on me and then when my order finally went thru they took the money out of my account but never sent a conformation email from the store just paypal tellin me they took the money out now i gotta wait 5 days for my money to get put back on my account this is getting terrible

Dumb ass color way all they did was add Navy to it, it's no different from the Oreos IMO.

it's funny how often I see "...the most sought-after Jordan of all time..." c'mon for real. These are my top top besides the Carmines- didn't you guys say the Concords had the same rep? c'mon-

I don't care about no laces being different but I agree changing the midsole from white to that blue the shoe isn't the same anymore but these could be just samples

Definitely copping two pairs!!!

If you want round laces just cop some or take them out of some other kicks, & JB doesn't want the retro to look excatly like the og's then there's no point of admiring the quality of the OG's then.!

Copping two pairs. One to actually wear, and one to admire ts beauty. It's worth it.

From the lighting it looks like I'm only looking at the Oreo VI's.

Carmines or Olympics... They're the same shoe just a different colorway. In the end it comes down to if you prefer navy or red.

Will you all calm down!!! This is just a first run sample pic! It's not the official images!!! You young Hypebeast punks can't appreciate anything!! Most of you guys never seen MJ play anyway so your opinion doesn't matter at all!!

And hopefully the jumpman in the back will be red like the ogs as well

I love n have the Olympic 6s from 2000 but they r not wearble so I was very happy to hear they were bein retro.. I mean these retros look pretty good I figured they wouldnt keep the round laces so im not too disappointed about that but only bad thing I noticed is they made the midsole navy blue on these so I really hope they make the midsole white like the ogs otherwise I will be VERY disappointed n might not even cop.. it's still early tho so we'll see what happens

@mrjordan313
@mrjordan313

to be honest i like the changes on the retros, cause it sets the originals apart. When i see people with originals on, depending on how they rocking them, i kinda get them a mental salute. much respect.

I'll be passing. I don't see what is so special about a blue and white Air Jordan VI. Honestly I think this shoe is just a bunch of hype cus It's a Jordan shoe. And this is coming from somebody who likes Air Jordans.

The sneaker game is much like a girlfriend *lol lame I know* but follow me you got do all sorts of crazy things to please her, spend alot of money and time. Also you gotta think would you date the same girl over and over with a different name..not me..yea it just like the sneaker game. She got a lil donk now and got her hair all did up..so when that date come imma make my move and cop her twice..imo she still sexy and I will forever love her.."olympic 6"

these are better looking than most recent releases. Laces can easily be swapped out

I'll say it. THESE ARE NOT FRESH. Would rater pay $400 for the original Retro+. That Leather is about as dope as the Pepbled Leather they put on those Metallic AJ1's a couple years back. And that color blocking on the mid-sole looks terrible. If I were to cop these, I would be sure to strip all that blue off and go with solid white. These are trash.

Man Mj, Nike, & JB really came through for us old school collectors. The modifications are much appreciated. No black jumpman in chi X's, TECH Grey 4's, and nowthese mods to Oly 6's. Way to look out for your old school collectors Mike. S/o to Gentry too.

I don't expect little things to go unchanged so I normally don't care all too much about the subtle differences on retros but the whole light/dark balance looks a bit off with that midsole. Ah, oh well

Mr Saturday 83, what you've just said...is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul. A billion points to those who know what movie this is from.

Fuckin' thank you. They have molested this classic. It no longer has it's innocence. For shame.

The reason this line of reason is faulty is cuz the ogs and even the shitty 2000 era retros ARe NOT WEARABLE

Sorry you feel that way, but people such as my pops and I have been collecting since the old days. Im glad to see the changes to the new school kicks, that wayus collectors with heat from the 90's and early 2000's can look @ our collections with a greater appreciation.
