First stop: Las Vegas. That’s where Team USA will oil their hinges and warm up for the World Basketball Festival in Paris en route to the Olympic Games in London. As Team USA sets forth on the ‘Road To The Gold’, Jordan Brand will follow along with the Jordan Brand ‘RTTG’ capsule, which includes this great colorway of the Air Jordan 1; if you can remember, an ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan 1 inspired by the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ has already been done, but this version remixes those colors while adding the slick interior Vegas-inspired lining. Betting on Team USA to win the Gold isn’t a gamble at all, and neither will copping any of the RTTG releases, so check out the Air Jordan 1 below and look out for these next Saturday. Photos: gallery

To my previous post http://sneakernews.com/2012/04/30/air-jordan-1-hi...
Wasnt there a whole set of Olympic 1's that were suppose to drop? I remember SN showing this pair, a Gold/White pair, and a multi-color pair. Im I the only one that saw that?
Would look super clean with black or white laces. Can't wait to see more of that inner lining, looks crazy!
Boooooo! ....I really expected more from JB. These are way too plain. So many options with a Vegas theme and this is just a lazy attempt. The CDP 1's look a lot like these (without the inner lining). FAIL!!
I was hoping for a Vegas colorway after seeing the Barcelona 1, but I must admit I'm a lil disappointed...still dope jus not what I had in mind
Seems they dropped the white and gold and rainbow pairs and changed these a bit from the Black/White?Gold/Red pair. Shame to not see the white and gold :/
