By now, you can expect Jordan Brand to release a patriotic Air Jordan 7 retro every four years in honor of the upcoming summer Olympics. Memories of the 1992 Dream Team always run rampant before the roster of each Team USA Men’s Basketball roster comes to fruition. This year’s Air Jordan 7 “Olympic” breaks the mold from past retro releases with what some are calling a “Tinker Hatfield Alternate” tooling full of a number of new features. This preview showcases an updated heel branding featuring MJ’s Olympic number 9 in front of a unique American flag backdrop. Metallic Gold Coin accents represent the gold medal won that year with possibly the greatest basketball team ever assembled while a new Deep Royal Blue and Fire Red combination land on a white upper. The Air Jordan 7 Tinker Hatfield Olympic Alternate will arrive at retailers on August 16th for $190 USD. Check out a full view below and stay tuned for more right here on Sneaker News.
