Count it – four Air Jordan Retros arriving this Fall, all of which pays some sort of tribute to the Olympic Games and Michael’s triumphs at the event. Here we have a first detailed look at the Air Jordan VII of the ‘Gold Medal Pack’, which is currently slated for a release this August 18th; the entire Pack will retail for $350 (and you can’t purchase them separately), and will feature both the Air Jordan VI and VII anchored by Metallic Gold detailing. The VII features an ‘Away’ motif of Black with the DMP stylings of Gold on the midsole, heel-tab, tongue, and Jumpman on the upper ankle, and once released, the Air Jordan Gold Medal Pack should stand as one of the best releases of the year – but is it poised to be one of the greatest of all-time? We’ve got a detailed viewing after the jump so take a look and let us know what you think. Photos: MN

imo i like the shoes but people go with what you like and not the hype if you got style than it aint a problem

I like these, but I think I would want these separately. I don't want the gold 6s.

swing and a miss JB, defintely don't like the gold theme, looks like a cheesy version of the 6/11 pack. I'll just stick with FTLOTGs, hopefully they drop a few more 6 CWs this year.

These shoes are great! I have a toothbrush with the same name! Could any one tell me if this is the same brand that manufacture these? These look like one could play tennis in them, is this possible? I read some other notes here and I really do not get why nobody is talking about the shoes in the pictures shown up above? Pay attention! There are some fine looking shoes on display so lets focus on them. Again is it possible to do sports in these and will they sell them with some toothbrushes or whats the deal? With my luck Jordan toothbrushes are not even the ones who made these...? Anyways, bye thanx for your helpful responds!

I'm actually impressed with these compared with the 7s they dropped last year. Im picky about the overall shape and look of the shoe. I'll still cop but it still bugs me. These look good though. Still 6s > Although Jordan Brand would not lose any money using better materials and actually making "Quality Basketball Products Inspired By The Greatest Player Ever". Being a young head it sucks I wasn't around to cop quality pairs. Originals will always look the best. Jordans last good year of quality products was 2006 IMO. But w.e. I'll have to live with it and cop older retros in the future. Bad or good quality I'll always buy a pair of Js. Id rather pay retail for a low quality sneaker that I can wear for a longer period of time than a good quality, past retro that only has very few wears left. All this shit about hypebeasts and shit is so annoying. Yes theres hype. Its obvious. Constant complaining about quality wont do anything. If you want good quality products do what they did back in 2000 & petition to get that shit changed or stop buying the shoes. JB sees that theyre successful in selling out low quality kicks so why stop? If you believe in hypebeasts, than you are one. Straight up.

These don't even release until 3 months from now so give them a chance at least. The quality will probably improve

They should have made the lace tips gold and metal.... That would have been a nice accent

Nice! But kinda plane IMO.

These should have been all leather. They should have used the same leather as they did with the Ray Allen Milwaukee PE 7's.

These are cheap looking,ugly,and wack simple as that. The only reason people are on them is because they're the newest cheap hyped up Jordan that are coming out. These are a disgrace there are way better retro Nikes, and Jordans that are coming out. Who knows what you cats looking at.

with these new pics im really diggin the 7's a lot more, before i was all about the 6s and thought these were pretty wack

This pack is nice and everything, but I dont know about spending $350 on this pack, I rather go to a strip club or bar with that money!

hhh

6's are the real move here. Already found someone to split with me. He takes the 7's i take the 6's. Everybody Happy

Wow.... retro Jordan shoes retail for $160 so 2 shoes would be $320? So why are they pretty much charging $175??

Just wonder would you guys actually rock these after you cop them or just keep them in ice because I think I wouldn't rock them after I pay so much money for the pack, then what's the point copping them. They are not worth to buy and just keep in ice since they are not OGs just IMO

these would look better if the whole sneaker was high quality premium leather instead of the cheap two tone leather and nubuck combo

well...
well...

Can't really pin point what it is about these 7's that still doesn't have me sold, I want to say it could be the combination of white with the black and gold for some reason doesn't coordinate so well, or the whole two tone black as others have mentioned.... I don't know I think these will be a pair I will have to see on feet before I can make a final decision. The 6's are cleann though. That's for certain.

yah ppl complain too much these joints are hot

Whether this so-called 'Gold Medal Pack' is one-pair or a two-pair sneaker set, I am not that stupid to cough up $350. ARE U KIDDING ME??!!!!! It's clear purpose is to victimize customers who are already hooked on JB brands to make more PROFIT! I am not buying this! I AM NOT A JB ADDICT AND WILL NEVER BE A JB ADDICT. For JB addicts, good luck for setting your priorities to your WANTS than your NEEDS. If that makes you happy then go for it. I have other rational / reasonable / plausible / practical priorities in life. At least:... -I have ZERO credit card debt. -I have substantial savings for the rainy days. -I buy the best sneakers TO WEAR..NOT TO LOOK or RESELL. -I am piling up my savings for my retirement.

I'm on the fence, if I have the extra 350 plus tax to spend, I'll get them. I like them but I'm not going to freak over not getting them.

Mike

These look more like a resell to me..could use an extra G.

joe

did everyone expect an upgrade in materials with the $350 pricetag? people complaining about price and materials...these are the same ppl that are still gonna end up buying the shoe then flipping them for double the retail price

These go HAM with a black Brees jersey and some khaki cargos.

These are nice, but I just feel like they fell just short of some real amazing shit. It's so close to being a all time classic. But still gonna try and cop these along with the 6's

@Thigh_pillowz
@Thigh_pillowz

Still dont know how to feel about them. They look like the 10's that dropped in march kinda. i need to hold em to know..... wait i dont have a choice its a pack, damn.
