In our last preview of the Air Jordan VII Retro ‘Olympic’ slated for July, we noted that 2004 and ’10 releases preceding these makes this particular colorway one of the most commonly seen OGs over the years.  And to this point in history, most of our previews of the forthcoming drop have been grade school sizes, made evident by their five eyelets below the ankle (the mens have six).  But with the rest of the shoe a spot-on reproduction of the original (none of the midsole re-blocking we expect on the AJ6 ‘Olympic’), these kids prototypes provide a good sense of what to expect when these hit retailers on July 21st.  Check these out in greater detail after the jump and let us know how you’re going to handle the Olympic heatwave Jordan Brand will roll out during this summer.  via Air-Randy

Air Jordan VII Retro ‘Olympic’ GS

Although they’re not a part of Jordan Brand’s ‘Gold Medal’ Pack of Air Jordan VIs and VIIs coming up in August, the above pictured pair of Sevens is the most direct Dream Team tribute they have on tap for this summer.  The Air Jordan VII Retro ‘Olympic’ brings back a colorway that Michael wore to victory in Barcelona in 1992, one that made its presence felt twelve years later around the Athens Games, and again just two years ago in a ‘For the Love of the Game’ variant.  That kind of frequency makes these one of the most commonly seen colorways outside of the bred AJ1s, but the memories they evoke ensure that these will sell out in July even as sneakerheads eagerly anticipate the brand new double-package one month later.  Click through to get a look at this grade school sized pair (essentially identical with one less eyelet) and stick with Sneaker News for updates on this July 21st release.  via Air-Randy

Celebrity Feet: Lil’ Wayne & Ludacris @ Lakers/Heat Game

lil wayne and ludacris at heat lakers game 1 Celebrity Feet: Lil Wayne & Ludacris @ Lakers/Heat Game

Last night’s Lakers/Heat show was certainly a hot ticket in South Beach as notable hip-hop celebrities Lil’ Wayne and Ludacris were spotted at the game sitting -where else – courtside. Both spectators came to see the Kobe vs. LeBron duel, with Ludacris watching intently while wearing the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ (dropping later this year) and Lil’ Wayne munching on some popcorn while wearing the Air Jordan III ‘Black/Cement’. Red/Blue shorts, sunglasses, a multi-colored beanie – it must’ve been a toned-down evening for Wayne, but Luda kept it clean by matching his t-shirt-and-jeans outfit with his kicks. Check out both celebrities after the jump and let us know who had the better ‘fit! via ESPN.

Air Jordan Retro Releases – Fall 2012

air jordan retros fall 2012 1 001 Air Jordan Retro Releases   Fall 2012

2011 was an outstanding year for Air Jordan Retros, with neck-breaking releases coming at us every month – Sneaker News could’ve done a Top 30 list with just Jordans! But Jordan Brand isn’t about to put a stop to its unrelenting release schedule because this Fall 2012 season, we can expect quite a handful. Confirmed for this Fall 2012 cycle are the re-releases of the Air Jordan IV Mars, Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’, Air Jordan VII ‘Raptors’, and the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’; some notes to consider are that the Mars IV will not feature the Spike logo, and the ‘Olympic’ VII will likely be sans-FTLOTG gold stitched logo as well (more like the earlier release). Some new colorways that should be hitting us is the oft-discussed Air Jordan VI/VII ‘Olympic Pack’, and an Air Jordan IV ’23rd Anniversary’, that should be a huge hit given this year’s milestone for the Air Jordan IV. We’ve got a more specific release schedule for you below, so let us know if you think 2012 will surpass 2011 as the best year for Air Jordan Retros of this decade! via King Au on NT.
