You didn’t think those were all the on-feet Sneaker Con Chicago shots did you? We’re back again with a supplemental dose of footwear from the show that hit Chi-town over the weekend. You had Yeezys in all shapes and sizes, a testament to Kanye’s power over his hometown. You had adidas collabs also coming from hometown heros LDRS. You had coveted New Balances showing that the midwest is also down with the N. You even had a sighting of the lawsuit generating Nike Ari Menthol pair.

Air Jordan VII “Olympic” – Game Issued Autographed Pair

August 28th, 2013 by | 6 comments

air jordan vii oylmpics autographed 570x425 Air Jordan VII Olympic   Game Issued Autographed Pair

The problem with vintage, game-worn Jordans is that they’re often a little too beat to really make a decent display piece. Taking care of that problem is this incredible vintage Air Jordan VII “Olympic”. The sneakers were created specifically for Michael’s wear at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, as indicated by the FTPS designation on the tag, but never actually hit the hardwood. What’s more, they’ve got Michael Jordan’s personal blessing on the back end in the form of a signature. Continue reading to see more on this piece of history and then check out the chance to own the pair for yourself from abas15 on eBay.

Rajon Rondo in Air Jordan VII “Olympic”

The associations between Rajon Rondo and the Nike Basketball Hyperfuse series are as strong as Rorschach and ink blots, but just like pretty much every guy in the NBA right now, Rondo grew up idolizing Michael Jordan.  One of the players who helped to promote NBA2K11 by reliving some of MJ’s greatest moments continued to reimagine history over in the Philippines, where Rondo rocked the ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan VII Retro (and matching Dream Team ’92 shorts) during a stop on the Red Bull King of Rock Tour.  Now that Ray Allen has departed Beantown, might pro basketball’s richest legacy need a new Jumpman on board?  Stick with Sneaker News to see what Rondo and the rest of the NBA and NCAA’s elite talents rock this season and check out Rajon sporting a different kind of ’9′ after the jump below.

The annual tradition of basketball simulation video games continues with this October’s NBA 2K13, but in this Olympic year, gamers have a little something special waiting for us. NBA 2K has confirmed that both the 1992 NBA Dream Team and the 2012 USA Basketball Team will be featured in the game, allowing those manning the console control to determine the outcome of the much-debated ’92 vs. ’12 discussion. In addition it appears that some of the original sneakers from the 1992 Dream Team will return as well, like Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ and Larry Bird and Magic Johnson in Converse (seen here in the Weapon, although Larry wore the Converse Bird USA and Magic wore the Converse Magic USA). In addition, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, and Derrick Rose share the cover of the latest NBA 2K installment so check out this sick NBA 2K rendering of the ’92 squad after the jump.

Jordan Triple Threat “Rise Above All” T-Shirt

jordan triple thread rise above all shirt 5 Jordan Triple Threat Rise Above All T Shirt

This Sunday, the Jordan Brand label brought home two more Gold Medals thanks to two of its marquee athletes – Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul. This latest apparel offering from Jordan Brand juxtaposes the ’12 members with ’92′s Michael Jordan as all three athletes are wearing their respective kicks – MJ in the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ and CP3/Melo wearing the Jordan Super Fly ‘Olympic’. The shirt design is a throwback to the original Dream Team t-shirt, as Melo and Jordan hold up the Jordan global logo and CP3 drapes the American flag on his back. One glaring omission? Jordan Brand athlete Dwyane Wade, who spent the summer rehab-ing an injury. So even thought the ’12 team brought home Gold, the debate continues is the 2012 team better than the 1992 Dream Team? Check out additional angles and close-ups of this tee below and get yours right now at Nikestore.

If you’ve had your eyes on our extensive coverage of the World Basketball Festival events going down in Washington, DC recently then you should know that the Jordan Super.Fly is a key player in the festivities. Along with a buildout promoting the all new Jordan Brand sneaker, a couple Olympic flavored pairs also popped up in the section of the Armory showing off which sneakers this year’s team would be rocking, suggesting we might see Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and Maya Moore in them come time for the games. Along with that model there is a particular retro near and dear to the hearts of sneakerheads set to a part of this year’s Olympic rollout, the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ which Michael Jordan wore during the incredible Dream Team run of 1992. Click through with us to get a look at both and let us know which of these patriotic models you’ll be picking up.
