It may not be the case for Phil Knight, but Wale definitely has the public goin “how you got them?” from time to time. There have been plenty of occasions where Wale rocks some sneakers way ahead of schedule, but for this latest sneaker sighting, he went into his own stash and turned back to clock to 2000 by rocking the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ – not the upcoming 2012 release. Wale was spotted during All-Star Weekend, chillin’ in the Orlando Magic Locker Room wearing these beauties, and as the excitement surrounding the 2012 Retro of the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ continues to mount, we can makes some fine guesses as to who will rock the ’12 Olympics next. Fabolous? Rick Ross? Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Wale in the Olympics, as we spotted him a few years back wearing ’em during a GQ party. Check out an extra shot of Wale’s Air Jordan VI after the jump and let us know what you think. via axgilbert

Im a personal friend of the dude, and just a lil HOOD FYI, we rock ish once and leave for the next time you wanna surprise ya self, or give em to kids in the hood less fortunate.. Kicks come and go, just like *&(*^(... Get money.. and stop jockn
My 2000 Olympics aren't that crisp. Can't wait till the Summer so i can get em again. It's been to long
i coulda swore Wale had a contract w/ Nike so why are all these shoe sites so surprised he has thousands of shoes? lol these sites act like he's the only one w/ the '00 Olympics
No matter what his sneaker game is da best cuz of nike shit i rock what i dnt see on everybodys foot like Foamposite's if u aint got em then u penny loftin lol.......
Sooo what, everytime Wale wears something dope it gotta be an article on SN? I mean really its not even like he hasn't been spotted in these before! stop the hype!
Just sneakers everybody...he's not running for president lol! I think the only people who trip on who has what is the hypebeast. Cop what u can and keep it moving
nice! ...I am looking forward to rocking the 2012's. I don't giva.... if they are retros. I buy wtf I want. U should too!!!
Is it just me, or is Wale everything that's wrong with this damn swag epidemic? I mean, if his music was interesting at all - don't get me wrong, I'm a huge hip hop head dating back 20 years - but I'm just not feeling it. His shits got no personality so his whole kick game just seems superficial... Am I way off? Am I missing something...?
this guys a loser.. can't rap, can't ball, can't dress, all he can do is make you jock riding nike fuckboys pop boners
apparently u aint seen all tge hype over the galaxys den, huhbruh? i usee to say dat, and now cuz of the hype, i have anincomplete set of posites, dont got da anthracites and now the galaxys...
1. Since when did Nike give people shoes that were made in 2000? 2. You're obviously new to the sneakergame going by your name. 3. He's had those 6's since at least 08. Don't speak on things you don't know bro.
You hit it on the head homie, the rap game changed so did the sneaker game. He got kicks for days, but his music is whack. I'll stay with my underground music Rusty, Sean P, Tech, Cannibal Ox, etc. etc etc over Weezy, Wale, Rick Ross. Bunch of cornballs with fake persona's.
word up- lived out there for 6 years and came on on some heat. They don't play over there- and they don't sell kicks for rape prices either.
they crack when the get old. u must be a rookie sucking on ya mamas tit in 2000 huh? bet everything in your collection is from 2010 and up the year hypebeasting were born to the jordan world.
You must be a little prick sucking on your moms tit in 1990 huh? You probably live with your mom still. Or you probably do live on your own, but are late on payments so you can buy your shoes you pay check to pay check scrub. Quit doggin on people just because you got a few kicks before the mad rush. Go eat a dick you wanna be shit.
