Playing Hard to Get: The 23 Rarest Air Jordan Releases

While most A-list Jordan releases cook out to medium rare, there’s a long list of juicy pairs that were near impossible to get. Call it hype, call it high demand, no matter how you slice it these drops were more wanted than made. In celebration of #MJ50, we bring back The 23 Rarest Air Jordan Releases. Get your camping gear and F5 key ready.

**Pairs are listed in order of release date**

Air Jordan 6 "Olympic"

Air Jordan 6 “Olympic”

Shoe: Air Jordan 6+ “Olympic”
Date: September 15th, 2000

Release Information: Limited quantity, new colorway, and Gold Medal nostalgia created the perfect storm for the Air Jordan 6 “Olympic” release. Worn in the Sydney Games by Ray Allen and Vin Baker, only 3,000 pairs were sold through Nike Towns and then NikeTown.com. This makeup proved the first Air Jordan 6 retro and the first time the model was seen in a non-OG colorway.

        1. Armanniijae says:

  7. Bkoe says:

    Australia and New Zealand have quai 54 too.

    1. big_treesty says:

      yep. ?that’s how my lady justified the 23 hour (coincidence?) plane ride to Australia to visit her folks. ?despite being available, they still go for some serious scrill, but most prices down there are pretty hiked up.

  8. pwong. says:

      right no black and red laser 4s

  12. swagmcmuffin says:

    I fell in love with the Thunder/Lighting when I saw Mike Posner wearing em. No homo pause that.

  13. metmanaman says:

    Wouldn’t the Quai 54 blacks be, at least one of, the rarest jordan release(s)? ?Only 54 were made according to DJ Clark Kent. ?UNDFTD 4s, then these make sense to have been included as well.

    1. metmanaman says:

      The fact that the UNDFTD 4′s were included, then the black Quai 54′s make sense to have been included as well.**

    2. Mjk23504 says:

  14. LinnOeymoLover says:
