Jordan Brand’s plans for this Olympic summer are coming into clearer focus with recent looks at upcoming releases like the ‘Gold Medal Pack’ and ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan VII. The pair pictured above has one key advantage over these and any others that might follow in their wake: it’s looking like the first of all these drops with an early July ETA. The Air Jordan VI Retro ‘Olympic’ reminds us that JB still takes the gold even twenty years after MJ won in Barcelona, this slightly altered design (revised midsole coloring) reminding us that while times have changed, the spirit of this silo representing both an Olympic gold and Mike’s first NBA championship lives on in our memories. Check these out in greater detail below and let us know to which of the ‘Olympic’ Air Jordans you’re most looking forward. Photos: Marquee Sole
Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’
White/Midnight Navy-Varsity Red
Easy pass they not even close to the 2000 joints. I just need the 4's, 11's, and 17's then I'm done with Jordan's all together.
don't say or think they where olympic retros cuz they are NOT and too far from it just accept they where new colorway for satisfiying our souls then COPP
They fucked with the midsole. Usually screws up the whole shoe, but these are nice. I would cop. Hopefully these aren't so hyped up that they would sell out quick though.
These are must have for me 1. Columbia XI , 2. Obsidian XII, 3. Olympic VI 2000, 4. new pair laney V, 5. New pair Olive IX. And no more jays for me
All I need is these and the Bred 11s and I'm straight for the year...and maybe the next. Where yall seeing the black?? Its midnight navy...dark blue!
Black midsole? you must be color blind if you see a blk midsolee. but most deff coppin thesee, they sweet.
dammmm mann those are fukkin wet woowww!!!! its like looking face to ass at JLO and nicki minaj at the same time
i dont know if is me or what but take out the red parts ant they look like the oreos... still fresh though
Marqueesole just took me off the fence. Def cop. Still a little disappointed that they didn't keep the midsole white but I can live with it. If you knew your stuff, you'd know that they were considering dropping these back in 00 rather than the ones with the white midsoles. This version was a sample back than. So I can live with it. Only problem is going about copping since that twitter system for Nike doesn't have an account for Florida. I'll find a way. But these are must haves.
Nike actually decided to release the 2000 sample version of these, bc if u look in the old Eastbay Mag. this exact version was in there instead of the 2000 release version. But these are nice I'm gonna cop.
something about the shape looks a little off, but the colors are mad nice! I like the blue, and the red pops out perfectly. I don't mind the midsole in this picture(I wish it was like the 2000 pair but its not bad or anything). either way I'm just not sure if I want to wait in line for these...if there was no line I would definitely cop.
I foresee these as a struggle to get for me due to raffling and crap-brotha's gotta work, i don't have time for that crap. But i'm gonna grab two pair no matter what I have to do or how long i have to wait! these are my top 5 favorite j's.
the quality actually looks pretty good. only thing that i hate is the midsole repaint! :/ but still a cop!
Shoe is superbad, i kno idiots r gonna complain about the midsole so dont coppem. These is hot & still the the complainers will be in line to cop these then make a youtube video on how they blew their money. I lovem and thats all that matters
Easily my favorite colorway on the 6s even with the minor changes to the shoe. Definitely will be trying my damn best to get two pair.
Never had the 1st ones so I gonna get these regardless of the midsole. Peace to the people who got the OGs tho..
That tumbled leather looking kind of buttery. Sleep on these if you want but when you realize you should've copped, holler at your boy Rick cause I'm getting at least a pair to wear and a pair to share and more if I can get my hands em.
One of my favorite shoes that's dropping this year, lets just hope the quality isn't crap on these shoes. But by the looks of the pics it probably is!
Why JB always fucking up shit, jus leave the originals alone...still hope they do a Nike air series, and give the true fans a chance to get the real classics.
I dont care if theyre Hyped or wearing them makes me a hypebeast - I want them because of the color, i just love the colorway of it
