With 2012 marking the 20th Anniversary of the legendary Dream Team of 1992, Nike and Jordan Brand is going full throttle with Olympic-inspired releases in order to make 2012 on of the most memorable sneaker years in history. Nike’s got the Dream Team Collection on lock, but Jordan Brand will up the ante by bringing back the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ while introducing yet another Air Jordan Package dubbed the ‘Gold Medal’ Pack; it features the Air Jordan VII (the model worn by MJ during the ’92 Dream Team run) as well as the Air Jordan VI (worn by the original Team Jordan athlete Ray Allen during the 2000 Games) with Gold at its core. Here we have a look at the Pack releases side by side, so the question is: Which of the two do you like better? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for updates as we near the August 18th release. Photo: jstforkicks22 on ISS

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.
