Default 2008 Olympic Air Jordan Retro VI







OMG to me these are the hardest 6's ever!!!!!!!!! MUST COP THESE!!!!!!!


Say what you will about Jordan Brand’s colorful new approach to commemorating this summer’s 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, but the Air Jordan VI is once again the subject, after an Olympic colorway of the Retro VI was first released in 2000 at the Sydney Games.

This summer’s Jordan Retro VI is inspired by the Olympic Rings, designed by Baron Pierre de Coubertin in 1913 and introduced at the 1920 Olympic Games held in Belgium, after the previous Games were cancelled due to World War I. The five interlocking rings represent the five continents that originally participated in the competition globally recognized for featuring the world’s greatest athletes.

Aside from the colorful midsole, the upper features white cobec, a patent leather-like synthetic, as well as an intricate stitching pattern along the toe inspired by Italian craftsmanship. The stitch pattern is also featured along the Jordan Olympian, which Carmelo Anthony is planning to wear this summer. The Olympic Retro VI will be released on June 7th at select retailers and is priced at $150.

Only reason why I would buy them is because they are VI's.

Anyone buy these?

I didn't really think they were worth $150. But I guess if I see them again (not likely) I will probably pick them up.

It would look better with a black and white combination. They kind of do look fake but i am sure they aren't. Nice shoe though.

Maybe because they were a limited release. And all the Jordan heads were all over these because these things will be bringin in the $$$$ in a few years.

Fakes? Haha, no. They are legit.
