The variety of Olympic Air Jordans on tap for summer 2012 continues to expand as we approach the upcoming London Games, but we can’t forget about the design without which, arguably none of the others would even exist. You see, before the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the USA Basketball roster was filled with top-tier college talent. And that’s not to say that they didn’t fare well in international competition; to the contrary, USAB managed to win the previous ’88 Games in Seoul to repeat the gold medal they won in 1984 with young stars including a 21 year-old Michael Jordan.
Mike returned to the Five Ringed stage eight years later with what might very well be the single greatest
team in the history of sport and their slaughter of the rest of the world made the ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan 7 and its ’9′ heel badge an all-time legend.
The Air Jordan Retro 7 “Olympic” officially drops July 21, 2012 but you can PRE ORDER NOW @ LOOP. Based on the response, this will be SOLD OUT before the release date so act quickly.
