“Olympic” Air Jordan VII
The variety of Olympic Air Jordans on tap for summer 2012 continues to expand as we approach the upcoming London Games, but we can’t forget about the design without which, arguably none of the others would even exist. You see, before the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the USA Basketball roster was filled with top-tier college talent. And that’s not to say that they didn’t fare well in international competition; to the contrary, USAB managed to win the previous ’88 Games in Seoul to repeat the gold medal they won in 1984 with young stars including a 21 year-old Michael Jordan. Mike returned to the Five Ringed stage eight years later with what might very well be the single greatest team in the history of sport and their slaughter of the rest of the world made the ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan 7 and its ’9′ heel badge an all-time legend. These will arrive in mid-July about four weeks before the ‘Golden Moments’ edition hits; will your decision about which ‘Olympic’ Jays to purchase change as a result of the new images you’ll see after the jump below? via Taobao
Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’
White/Metallic Gold-Obsidian-True Red
First time buying jordans at a release. Does anyone know how long the lines are and how early I should come to wait in line if I want these? An do the releases start at midnight? I can't wait for these!
the black behind the jordan symbol looks a little ashy near the ankles but still looks to be a nice pic up IMO
Quit posting the same show every other day. We know the Olympic's are releasing the 21st. We don't need 4 posts a week on the same shoe to persuade Us to cop. All this does is h y p e up the shoe. Sneakernews probably h y p e s up more shoes than any another website I know. I do enjoy coming to your website as I have for the last 3 years. But this is getting annoying and had been for a while now.
Good looking shoe. From what I see no major differences from the 04 version. Overall a great shoe and I cant wait to have them.
