Throwback Thursday – Air Jordan 6 Olympic

We have recently had a ton of Olympic coverage lately and with the Games quickly approaching, what better time to pull out another Olympic shoe.

MJ himself was not on the court in the Sydney, but his shoes were present. Ray Allen and Vin Baker were both Jordan Team members as well as members of the 2000 Olympic Team that won Gold. Nike released the shoes that the two JB athletes were wearing at Niketowns limited to just 3,000 pairs. This was the first retro model to be a Niketown exclusive and the first to have a “limited” run. To many the shoes were a navy version of the Carmines with the color blocking resembling the original.

Finding the Olympic Jordan 6, not to be confused with the Jordan Olympic 6, is not as easy of a task these days considering the shoes released almost 8 years ago. Thanks to age the clear outsoles are no longer clear on most of them either.

Plenty of shots of the shoes are posted after the jump. As a teaser for next Thursday’s Throwback, this athlete was only 17 years old when he won the French Open.
