Air Jordan VII ‘Gold Medal’
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
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.
Holy shit, can't go on SN without people complaining and others complaining about the complainers...smfh.
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
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!
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
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.
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.
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
How long have you been saving your minimum wage? Oh my bad you're just going to steal it like everyone else! People like you are the reason I stay away from sneaker stores in the mall. They're all corrupt!
It's like the DMP pack re-visited. But I thought those looked nice and I think these look nice also!
And you're insecure, kudos!! I have what you say you have but goddammit, I love some fresh j's!! Also, sometimes you just can't wear them, they are wearable art and it does make me happy as does my savings, home, lincoln, great job, 401k etc etc. My suggestion is keep working on yourself but in a personal way that does make you happy. People spend crazy money on things they don't need all the time but you can die tmrw, will you be counting your savings then? Live a little man, life is short. And don't even say I am!! You wouldn't waste your time on here if you were all about it. You are welcome.
