Air Jordan VI “Olympic” – 2000 vs. 2012 Comparison

July 7th, 2012 by | 10 comments

olympic vi comparison 04 Air Jordan VI Olympic   2000 vs. 2012 Comparison

By a show of hands (or comments, or thumbs ups): Who copped the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’? This weekend’s Air Jordan Retro release was deemed by some as the most anticipated of the year, even after a number of Air Jordans were confirmed throughout the course of the year. In light of the release of the Olympics, we have a quick comparison of both the 2012 Retro and the 2000 ‘original’ (by original, we mean the first time these dropped, although these are not an OG colorway). The primary difference is the color-blocking on the midsole, but here we see that on the medial side, all is the same! Check out the quick angles below, and let us know if you have both the 2000 and 2012 versions of this all-time classic.

Air Jordan VI “Olympic” – Release Reminder

July 6th, 2012 by | 9 comments

jordan vi olympic reminder 08 Air Jordan VI Olympic   Release Reminder

Twelve years ago, Ray Allen went to his first Olympic Games and earned a Gold Medal for USA, leading the team in scoring during the opening preliminary game against China and tying for the team lead in points during the Gold Medal game against France. The fifth-year veteran got his first taste of mainstage victory with that Gold Medal, as an NCAA National Championship and NBA Championship eluded him up until that point. It was during this Olympic run that Ray Allen sported the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’, bringing the Gold standard to the Jumpman brand that signed him on as one of its future faces. The original 2000 version of this colorway remains one of the most highly sought-after collectibles in the Air Jordan catalog, and tomorrow, a Retro release with minor differences will hit stores, giving Air Jordan fans new and old to revisit this iconic moment in Ray’s career. More of the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ below, so be sure to cop these tomorrow at Jordan Brand retailers, or get ‘em now from yellownsxt on eBay.

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.

Air Jordan VI “Olympic” – Arriving At Retailers

June 30th, 2012 by | 54 comments

air jordan vi olympic arriving at retailers Air Jordan VI Olympic   Arriving At Retailers

Will any of Team USA’s roster members wear the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ during the games? Count out Jordan Brand athlete Dwyane Wade, who will opt to rehab over the offseason, but perhaps guys like Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony will rotate these babies with their signature shoes. It seems like the return couldn’t have arrived at more opportune time, as this Summer will house an elevated level of nationalism when the red, white, and blue come together as one to take on the world during this August’s Games. Expect these at Jordan Brand retailers like socialstatus next Saturday, but if you just can’t wait, secure your pair right now on eBay.

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.

terrence j air jordan vi olympic june 11 1 Celebrity Feet: Terrence J   Air Jordan VI Olympic

All our attention is on the upcoming string of Olympic-themed Air Jordan releases like the ‘Golden Moments’ Pack and a re-issues of classic Air Jordan Olympic colorways, like the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’. Looks like BET 106 & Park host Terrence J got a jump on things, because he was recently spotted wearing the upcoming Retro release during Monday’s taping of the show, which featured guest Ne-Yo. Terrence J’s on-screen sneaker rotation has embodied all of what’s ‘hot’, forcing the question of “is he a real sneakerhead?”, but his mid-March sighting of the Air Jordan IX ‘Olive’ might’ve answered that question for us. More of Terrence’s kicks below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more Celebrity Feet features!
