The Air Jordan spotlight has been hogged by the ‘Golden Moments’ Pack as well as the recent unveiling of the upcoming ‘Charcoal’ Air Jordan VII (otherwise known as the ‘Raptors’ by the younger generation), but don’t forget the July 7th release of the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’! While not a true tit-for-tat Retro (the midsole color-blocking on the ’00 version was reversed), these will still be a hot commodity as it kicks off a slew of Olympic-inspired sneaker releases that’ll surely break the bank as we travel through the vacation months and back into the new year of school. Where do these land on your personal podium – bronze, silver, or gold? We’ve got another detailed look for you below so take a look and let us know if these are the must-have Olympic Jordans for the coming months! Photos: hupu
Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’
White/Midnight Navy-Varsity Red
Is it just me or is the Jordan logo on the heel the MJ we see on the sideline of the Bobcats games...lol... Looks like the Jumpman logo put on some weight! Still clean tho. I'd cop a pair if there is not a rediculous line to get a pair. I just paid $175 for a pair of white/red 11 lows to avoid the BS at the store. The extra $ was worth it to me.
What do you guys think resellers will charge for these?? I'm thinking of paying the rape fee for these at 300 for pre-order..
material looks cheap. its a must grab i admit. but i had the 00 release and the quality is a lot different. JB releases the cheapest materials available now for such these quick releases. every month some must have heat is droppin. but its never the same as the old days
Fuck these, fuck new shit, OG > First Round Retros (close call) >>>>>>>> All else. I understand there being youngsters that are brought into the game and know the basics because they have family members or close friends (actual friends) that are in the sneaker game for a while and KNOW KNOW they shit and than pass that down. But shit nowadays is absurd, hype kills and it eventually will literally kill Jordan Brand. It is what it is though, hope all the real heads cop and fake heads go fuck yourself and your wanna be fresh ass selfs.
Even though they still bother me, I'll cop because I don't have $350+ to drop on an 00 pair. But when I do...coppping my 00 pair.
Y isn't jb releasing sneakers like the old days when there general release store have plenty of pairs to sell???
i needa stop coming to this site. they show the same shoes i want over and over and in result i dont want them because ive seen em so many times
Man ive been in the game since 98' and finally they retro my fav jordans, so after these and the bred 11s and im out the game.
I'm going to finally get my hands on these!!! When they first release they didn't com outing GS sizes
I definitely would cop these I'm just sick of the effort required to get something on day of release that stayed on the shelves 12 years ago. Every month JB does this and it's tiring the hell out of me.
I'm doing the same bro. I am waiting for breds and sport and maroon vi's. Playoff and obsidians were on the list but had to pass due to the FAKE leather!
