By now you’re familiar with the new “Olympic Alternate” Air Jordan 7 releasing on August 6th and of course you know the original version of the Dream Team sneaker worn by Michael Jordan, but until now you probably haven’t seen a side-by-side comparison of the two. Now you can decide once and for all you like better: the tried and true original, or the new “alternate” edition. The new version is obviously a bit flashier than the original, with the speckled midsole, mismatched blue and red accents on each shoe, and the stars and stripes added to the #9 patch on each heel, but is it actually better than the colorway MJ made historic? You be the judge, and if the new version is a must-have either way, pick up your pair this Saturday at select Jordan Brand retailers.
