We know quite a bit about Jordan Brand’s Retro plans for this Olympic summer, but what about the ancillary designs? Not only does this new Jordan Super Fly feature the same distinct ‘RTTG’ inner tongue tag as the pairs we showed you early this week, but their paisley sockliner is a dead-on match for the Air Jordan 1s we saw just before the turn of the month. And like the Wizards-inspired design that shares a multicolor print with another of those ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan 1s, these come with a unique hangtag that resembles an airline luggage tag. This one’s tagged ‘LAS’ in reference to Sin City, but given that the NBA All-Star Weekend rocked Vegas four years after Mike’s retirement, they’re probably more likely connected to his celebrity invitational golf tourney than that ASG. And it remains to be seen how all these RTTG Super Fly colorways will tie in with the entirety of JB’s summer Oly output, so for now, check out some additional images of this darkest ‘RTTG’ Super Fly and stick with Sneaker News for release info.
