Sneaker News showed you the 2002 lowtop edition earlier this week as part of our Classics Revisited spotlight on lowtop Air Jordans, but pictured above is another white and blue AJ6 that made also its debut in the early ’00s. Ray Allen helped USA Basketball claim another gold medal in Sydney, and now the 20th anniversary of Michael Jordan and the original Dream Team makes the perfect occasion to bring the ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan VI out of retirement after twelve years. Much like the teams with whom MJ and Sugar Ray won their golds in ’92 and 2000, respectively, 2012’s ‘Olympic’ Sixes are joined by an ensemble cast of Air Jordan Retros this summer, so you might want to make it easier on your summertime sneaker shopping plans by scooping up an early pair from 95soleman on eBay.
