USA Basketball coming together once again for the upcoming FIBA World Championships so it’s quite normal if you’ve got that patriotic ‘U.S.A.! U.S.A.!’ thing going on. The Jordan Rare Air – JB’s newest hybrid – was introduced in an Olympic colorway but the timing could be questioned. An Olympic release in a non-Olympic year? Perhaps these might’ve gained more steam had these introduced in 2012, but they’re available now at select Jordan retailers. The midsole design takes after the air Jordan IV and VI, featuring the Olympic ring colors, while the toe and heel mimic the AJ III and the elephant print, though a closer look reveals that the print isn’t on a leather toe/heel panel of its own, but rather branded partially onto the existing piece. These just dropped at Premier so take another look after the jump and add these to your Jordan hybrid collection today.
