It was just about twenty years ago that a ten story tall reverse-dunking Michael Jordan covered the side of a major downtown Barcelona highrise. A classic MJ home video reveals among other details from the 1992 Dream Team that Michael himself visited the massive ad while wearing a Bordeaux-styled short suit, a reminder that it was the Air Jordan VII Jordan wore while dominating international competition en route to his second gold medal. That means that the above pictured Air Jordan VI Retro is more commonly associated with Ray Allen’s 2000 Sydney gold-winning performance, or perhaps one of your lucky sneakerhead homies who happen to have one of the rare remaining quality pairs from that run. We’ll have another crack at them when the ‘Olympic’ Jordan 6 hits retailers on July 7th and you can see a fresh set of images after the jump that represent a couple of pairs available right now from parkave718 on eBay.
