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.

Patriotism and sport come reached a fiery meeting point whenever the Olympic Games are organized every two years, so as the Summer fare looks to open up later this month, Jordan Brand aims to deck out its most loyal followers with some of its most iconic Olympic-inspired gear in its history. Last weekend, the Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’ hit stores as one of the most anticipated Air Jordan Retro releases of the year, and just two weeks after that, the first ever ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan will return to complete the one-two punch, but will the Air Jordan VII be as popular? With 2010′s ‘For The Love Of The Game’ release still relatively fresh in our minds, next Saturday’s Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ may be an easy ‘pass’ for some, but we’re certain a number of folks missed out that time around. Social Status will definitely have these beauties in stock – will you make these yours come the 21st?

“Olympic” Air Jordan VII

June 7th, 2012 by | 28 comments

olympic air jordan vii Olympic Air Jordan VII

The variety of Olympic Air Jordans on tap for summer 2012 continues to expand as we approach the upcoming London Games, but we can’t forget about the design without which, arguably none of the others would even exist. You see, before the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the USA Basketball roster was filled with top-tier college talent. And that’s not to say that they didn’t fare well in international competition; to the contrary, USAB managed to win the previous ’88 Games in Seoul to repeat the gold medal they won in 1984 with young stars including a 21 year-old Michael Jordan. Mike returned to the Five Ringed stage eight years later with what might very well be the single greatest team in the history of sport and their slaughter of the rest of the world made the ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan 7 and its ’9′ heel badge an all-time legend. These will arrive in mid-July about four weeks before the ‘Golden Moments’ edition hits; will your decision about which ‘Olympic’ Jays to purchase change as a result of the new images you’ll see after the jump below? via Taobao

Air Jordan VII – 2012 Olympic Releases

May 21st, 2012 by | 49 comments

air jordan vii 2012 olympic releases 1 Air Jordan VII   2012 Olympic Releases

As is the case with the Air Jordan Legacy as a whole, the majority of significant memories from the Olympic Games are concentrated in the early years.  This holds to the Olympic Air Jordans to an even greater degree, as the two most famous are directly connected in the lineage.  Air Jordans 6 and 7 are both slated for a huge season as we approach the London Games and the 20th anniversary of the Dream Team in Barcelona, and one of each will join to create the first two-pack we’ve seen since 2010′s  ’Infrared Pack’.  That ‘Golden Moments Package’ of Air Jordan VI and VIIs means that for the latter of those silhouettes, you can choose between a colorway that resembles the original ‘Defining Moments’ Sixes, or opt instead for the ‘Olympic’ Sevens.  Both of these AJ7s are depicted in greater detail below; are you planning to grab all of the Olympic Jays or does one of these stand out in particular?

The upcoming Air Jordan ‘Golden Moments’ Pack refers to the two Olympic Gold Medal triumphs of the Air Jordan, which arrived in 1992, when Michael led the Dream Team to a dominated victory in the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’, and in 2000, when Ray Allen played his role in the 2000 Gold Medal squad in the Air Jordan VI. Both of those colorways will in fact release independently of the Pack, with the Air Jordan VII version slated to hit retailers on July 21st. The ‘Olympic’ should still be somewhat fresh in our minds as a special ‘For The Love Of The Game’ edition released in 2010 with a gold-embroidered basketball/heart logo on the heel. Another look at the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ is just ahead, so take a look and cop these early from el-store on eBay.

Just because you won’t be attending school this summer doesn’t mean you’ll have a break from getting up early and filing into a huge public building filled with your peers.  To the contrary, you might end up filling the dog days with a job so you can keep up with the other Jordanheads lining up to cop heat this Olympic summer.  We’ll be getting two each of the Air Jordan VI and Air Jordan VII Retros as both models’ ‘Olympic’ colorups return along with a brand new ‘Gold Medal’ Package that’ll become the first double-drop since 2010′s ‘Raging Bull’ DMP (a duo that produced the Sneaker News readers’ choice for the greatest non-OG Air Jordan colorway ever).  The first two are already certified classics; will the ‘Gold Medal’ Pack join them in your Mt. Rushomre of Air Jordans?  Let us know which of these is a must-have this summer and stick with Sneaker News as we approach one heckuva six-week stretch in July/August.  Photos: 23penny

Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ – Dissected

April 7th, 2012 by | 30 comments

air jordan vii olympic breakdown 1 Air Jordan VII Olympic   Dissected

It’s not often that you see a deadstock pair of Air Jordans taken apart piece by piece. Although it may be tough to swallow at first glance, this crisp new pair of the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ has seen the grim reaper and is now separated from head to toe – upper, insole, midsole, outsole. As you can see, this ‘autopsy’ reveals the major comfort component of the Air Jordan VII – the full-length Air unit that is embedded into the midsole. The Air Jordan VII broke the streak of visible Air Max units in the Air Jordan that spanned Air Jordan III through VI, and since then the ‘embedded Air’ has been a staple until Zoom was introduced with the Air Jordan XII. So, what to do with these spare pieces? Form a hybrid, or restore an old pair? Check out the extra bits of this dismantled Air Jordan VII and let us know if you’re going to cop the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ when it drops in a few months. Photos via sole-up
