This Saturday, Air Jordan fans will get to relive one of the most celebrated moments in basketball history – Ray Allen winning a Gold Medal as a representative of Michael Jordan’s brand. Ray’s been the longest-tenured athlete on the Jordan Brand roster, so the return of the Olympic VI is as much of a tribute to Ray and his Hall Of Fame career as it is to MJ’s international legacy. There’s no doubt that the first true Olympic VI (don’t forget the 2008 ‘Beijing’ and upcoming 2012 ‘Golden Moments) will be one of the best sneaker releases of the year, as it was voted as one of the most anticipated releases during our 2011 Reader’s Choice Poll, so let’s hear it again: are these a instant ‘cop’ for you? Check out Jordan Brand’s official images and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

i made a reservation for these, went to the store to check them....left with a pair of air force 180 olympic instead. i did not like them at all when i saw them no matter how much i liked them in the pics. :( it did not remind me the jordan 6 i had when i was a kid..it felt like a different shoe unfortunately. L(
Prepaid today, they don't look as good as 2000 version. Glossy and cheap looking IMO. But don't expect much from JB quality wise now days. Midsoles are made much better now
These haven't come out in so long! Definately going to cop. The 7s come out like every couple years. Next Jordan has to do is release the Carmines again!
Yeah these joints are nice, they look good on feet..Rocking them with my Cowboy and Rangers gear this year!!
Im undecided. Shud i cop 2 pair or buy 1 oly 6 and 1 oly 7 releasing in 2 wks? Need some help fellow sneaker heads
Are these going to be easy to cop like the CG12, obs 12 and green foams were, I hear Nike is producing more product these days...Anybody got the inside scoop, I'd love to not have to go wait in line at 6 in the morning on a Saturday
Believe it or not this shoes are not popular in Japan. I could pre-order them online which is a rare case nowadays. I can double up or triple if I go to retailers on saturday. But only one pair is fine with me. I can sleep as much as I want on saturday morning.
Love Them The Official pictures look great got mine on pre-order from my local spot. hope you all get yours =]
Not 100% sure but I think the soles are tinted slightly blue like the Black/Metallic Silver 5's that dropped last year
Yall need to call corperate they got more pairs then that bcuz u cant split 18 pairs between toddlers up to adults. Yall store is holding back for VIP ppl
