Just because you won’t be attending school this summer doesn’t mean you’ll have a break from getting up early and filing into a huge public building filled with your peers. To the contrary, you might end up filling the dog days with a job so you can keep up with the other Jordanheads lining up to cop heat this Olympic summer. We’ll be getting two each of the Air Jordan VI and Air Jordan VII Retros as both models’ ‘Olympic’ colorups return along with a brand new ‘Gold Medal’ Package that’ll become the first double-drop since 2010’s ‘Raging Bull’ DMP (a duo that produced the Sneaker News readers’ choice for the greatest non-OG Air Jordan colorway ever). The first two are already certified classics; will the ‘Gold Medal’ Pack join them in your Mt. Rushomre of Air Jordans? Let us know which of these is a must-have this summer and stick with Sneaker News as we approach one heckuva six-week stretch in July/August. Photos: 23penny

og or not og if you missin out onthat gold medal pacc your a fool...think about it how often does jb do that? and wen u think about it 350 divided by 2 is 175 thatz how much it cost for a pair of jays anywayz....you jus basically buying 2 solo js at tha sane tyme its jus lyke payin 175 bacc to bacc lyke thy release a pair of jays every 2 weeks....yall bbe killn me wit all this whining jus say u cant afford it shit dnt put down tha gold medal pacc because they really are NICE
not feelin the package..i am not a vi fan and the two-toned vii kills it for me..either make the shoe all nubuck or all leather..not half and half..as long as the charcoals/raptors are all black upper...count me in!
That gold pack is just a gimmick, the 6s are dope, but I will have no problem skipping out on those. Or at the least copping it just for the 6s and selling the 7s which is what most of us is thinking lol
ummm...noo! no thanks on the gold medal pack! sorry not going through all hell to get some SHOES when i could get the Olympic 6s, and 7s much easier then the pack..sorry...really...and then on top of that! the Olympic Cws are sooo much better! comon now! ive thought this over many times..not even worth it for the pack really...not ganna spend almost 800$ on SHOES in 2months!?!?! really?!!? sorry i got more important things do do il cop the Olympics keep the over priced pack...SMH
Is it me or did they switch the midsole on the white/gold 6's from earlier pics shown around sneaker websites? They already switched the midsole on the midnight olympic 6's... JB getting sloppier and sloppier... Not to mention the trash they called the playoffs that just dropped... Nike needs a serious boycott or shit is just gonna get worse
Both pair of the olympic 6s and 7s are 160. 320 gor both without tax and 352 with tax. Gold pack is 350 without tax and 385 with tax. the difference: $33 you a-hole. so again as I said Its a small difference (only $33) but nothing major if you decide to cop the gold pack or just both olympics.
