Team USA Basketball will look a little different than its 2008 gold medal winning version. The same can be said for the Air Jordan 6 ?Olympic?. As discussed in last week?s Throwback Thursday video, the colors on the midsole have been inverted on this year?s model of the shoe. Other than that slight differentiation, the leather midnight navy and white upper remains similar to its original version. Varsity red Jordan branding on the back of the shoe, tongue, and lace locks is just enough to add the patriotic feel to the long awaited sneaker. These officially release on Saturday, June 7, but are beginning to pop up at select retailers. After a 12 year hiatus, will you cop these this weekend?
