Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ – New On-Foot Images
We can only imagine how crazy an Olympic summer will be given the insane start to 2012. But no matter what pops up between now and August, one of the biggest drops scheduled is the above pictured Air Jordan VI colorway first introduced at the 2000 Summer Games courtesy of sharpshooter extraordinaire Ray Allen. The Air Jordan 6 ‘Olympics’ return after a dozen years on the bench with a slightly altered midsole blocking pattern that’ll make the new run easily distinguishable from the originals. Expect these at Jordan Brand retailers the first week of July and get a sense for what others will see when you’re wearing them after the jump. via bigman652
Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’
White/Midnight Navy-Varsity Red
:There are definitely a lot of deitlas like that to take into consideration. Thatb4s a amazing point to bring up. I will offer you the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are actually questions just like the one you bring up exactly where the most critical point definitely will be working in honest very good faith. I donb4t know if most excellent practices have emerged around things like that, but I am certain that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
Og Do Look Better But Nothing Complain.. Jordan Trying Separate Each OG And The Retros From One Another..
Ok first off these are an un-original colorway, they dont need to make them exactly like the 2000 retros, second its a good thing the sole is different IMO, third people that have the 2000 retros are gonna be happy because theres a few changes, which means they'll still hold value and not drop in value! fourth I CANT AFFORD A PAIR OF 2000 RETROS AT THE MOMENT, PLUS THEY MIGHT NOT BE WEARABLE, SO IT LOOKS LIKE IM GONNA COP THESE, THEYVE ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE COLORWAYS SO IM COPPING THEM TO WEAR!
Looks like JB had to make them look like boots..... boxy toe box :/ The last VI retros didn't have that problem.
I'm tired of all these damn hypebeast kids and their hi black nike socks, shorts, 2011 retro's, same bowl-cut fades, and their "vintage swag" who ARE RUINING EVERYTHING. Its sad when people who saw MJ play and looked up to him back in the day cant even pick up a pair of sneakers to bring back memories.. These kids need to find a new fad to follow.
Seriously? They Fcked up with that midsole. The shoe looked 10x better how it was. And I'm not one to bitch about small details.
funny how everyone complaining about the midsole. the real originals were a PE for ray allen that had the midsole we are getting now.SMH at all of you
Prime example of a hypebeast whole doesn't know jack shit about shoes or its history right ^^^^^^^^ here. Next time make sure you google correctly if you wanna try to impress somebody smh. http://originaldc.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/ray...
They are gonna sell out regardless. The royal X's sold out release day suprisingly so thats gonna go for every other future retro release even if they look hideous (e.g. Son of Mars)
Since I missed the 2000 version, I will cop these as my first VI. I also agree that they should keep the og looking, but I won't mind too much because I have learned the lesson from concord XI that you may not like these shoes that much before they release, but at least you won't regret after you cop them, instead of looking for a resell pair on eBay or elsewhere.
The toe is curled OD ! :[ The midsole I can live with. I can repaint it if i wanted but really hoping the go back to the 2000 release.
and all the teenagers go crazy PASS, way to mess up a classic jb. Im not looking the other way this time.
The 2000's arent OG just the colorway is. Its still an retro and these a a re retro. These look great to me
These are 6s!!! No matter how u play it you just have to accept it! JB could be releasing fusions still lol so I wouldn't be to quick to complain and to address the og situation...I think there has to modifications just ebecause someone could cop 100 2012 editions and claim he has the 2000 release..Imagine being sold a retro in place of an og. Yea so be happy or let the next person cop.
a very good and true way to put that whole og vs retro change comparo bravo. But that would never happen if you know your kicks in some cases though because there is upc tags that have production dates and a 2000 version would never look like the 2012 version because it has some yellowing on it by now sole and leather. everything else is a long shot though
quality looks nothing good as the o.g pairs that dropped 12 years ago and the fuck is up with the banana shaped toe box area
How can you say that when there hasnt been any official pictures of them but a color sketch drawning picture....
i dont know about you, but those fire red 4s are the hottest out of the 3, and theyre not the topic for that artucle
So you're saying these White/ Gold VI's are ugly....you gotta be joking http://sneakernews.com/2012/02/21/air-jordan-6-7-...
Damn I can't wait to cop these! one of my favorite 6s! it's gonna be a hot summer! With the Olympic pack coming out, The Mars 4s, the obsidian 12s, shit not to mention any nike's that come out like foams or Lebrons
def no cop! quality is ass...mid sole throws the shoe off honestly...and on top of that their navy blue i wear no navy blue no point to cop unless i was gonna do what these wannabes do and put them on a shelve and stare at them?...lmao but since i wear my kicks since thats what shoes are for...couldnt rock em with much...for me theres so much to complain about with these..and then on top of it all! i refuse! to line up for these its getting ridiculous all you see in lines now are 15-20yr old wannabe sneakerheads thinking there getting something good...lol && all cause of this crazy internet hype...&& rappers as soon as these kids see a rapper in em its a "instant cop"! lmao...the shoegame is soo F-d up...make a movement & #kill the noise stop giving people 100thumbs up when they say "cant wait to cop!" who sees that the wannbes and resellers..then there like "yes i gotta cop everyone likes em!" sn=hype kings
shut up b.. you sound like a crying old lady. these are crack.. a first time retro that actually looks good and lets the older collectors that have to originals still have the ability to keep for their product to stand out. Just because they aren't a carbon copy of the Originals doesn't make it not a good shoe.
just get some white paint and you are golden....but on the real the quality is horrible. so swagless jb.
Damn they hyping the fucc outta these. U can tell by the article!!! these are pretty dope though. I jus DNT wana have 2 stand in a long ass line. That shit is ridiculous
