With three Olympic-inspired Air Jordan releases hitting this July-August (all worthy of being headlining acts), it’ll be tough to pass up on any one of them. One such must-have is the Air Jordan VI/VII Gold Medal Pack, which some say will be more sought-after than the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ and Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ (earlier confirmed for a July 21st release) due to the fact that the Retro colorways are something we’ve never seen before; this two-pack set, each based on opposing White and Black colors, use ‘Retro’ tones possibly to recreate that older ’92 Gold Medal feel, using Sail (an off-white tone) as the base-pairing. August 18th will be the release date for this popular set of kicks, sandwiched between the Air Jordan IV ‘Fire Red’ and Air Jordan VII ‘Raptors’. We’ve got some additional product information for you just below (note that the shoes will not be sold separately) so let us know in the comments section where these rank in your order of must-cop priority. via ISS

I Really Need To Know If Its Limited Or General Release Cause I'll Be Devistated If I Dont Cop These Joints..
Agreed fo sho to high on price would rather just get the olypic 6/7 that comein out soon instead the pack but that me I like the 6 in the pack better but the 7 out of the two in the Olympic . Gotta get the retro 10 stealth Saturday a fo sho copp
this is getting ridiculous, we as devoted sneaker collectors and lovers should neglect these insanely priced Jordan's. they (cooperates) are testing us like mice in order to see how far these ignorant materialistic beings are capable to spend on a pair of shoes, as soon as we stop, they will lower their prices to a responsible price. fuck the cooperates
kinda nice but what do you wear that matches it unless your a saints fan i bet i get a black pr for cheap on e bay. $350 can lick my b@##s! then tax and shipping my footlocker wont even get them jb is taking all the dough i'm about over all this bs my closet if full no room for whack hyped shoe that will sit there i have 2 dmp 6's and wore 1 of them twice.
Olympic 6 > gold medal pack 6, Olympic 7>gold medal pack 7. I think the only reason make these hyped is because they are in the "pack". I will probably pass these, there are too many hotter release this year for Jordan brand. Plus, I need to get the Olympic BB4 and 2K4.
Both are nice, but if i had to choose then it would be the 6's. The white, the gold, and the red jumpman just gives it that subtle look, yet it still catches your attention. Very classy indeed.
its so sad how at this point I have to look at sneakers I would love to cop, but could never get without paying $100+ or waiting in line for 12 hours
mmmm pass!! although i do like the 6's its not an original colorway and when paired with those ugly 7's all u hype beasts can have em
They are both nice, but I'll probably pass so I can try and get the Olympic 6's, The 23rd Anniv IV and the Raptor 7's
I'm sure there was a rumor that these would be a UK England only release as England is hosting the Olympics?
It'll be hard as ever to get this pack in my size. More stores need to sell 7s or 7.5s cuz I want this pack and I dont think a GS release is coming...
Damn $30 hike on a package, Oh well fuck it, i still want them. out of all the new colorways on retro's these are easily a nice, clean, and simple.
michael i love sneakers and i agree i dont really mind paying 110 for my kicks im usually a 5 1/2 or six but to spend that every time js come out there pricey and this pack is ok but not for no 350 they just tryna dig in our pockets bastards but then again its our fault we def let them get the best of us some times addiction and america smh
The sample of the 7's they showed last week was better than the ones in the pack. The joints with the multi-color tongue.
u think they will make em in a size 7? and will it still be 350 kuz size 7 is $120 with tax 2 pairs 240 idk?
yes but anyways that mix leather- suede and the white sections are not well executed, with or without the multicolor tongue..6 is way better imo
