Air Jordan 7 (Olympic Alternate)

UPDATE: The unveiling of official images always means a release is close. In the case of the Air Jordan 7 'Olympic Alternate', the release is closer than was originally stated. This alternate take on MJ's Dream Team kicks will be available in the US on August 6, through Nike SNKRS and select Jordan Brand stockists. For those outside America, you'll be able to cop your pair on August 13 through and select JB accounts.

UPDATE: They don't come much more patriotic than these star-spangled bangers. The red, white and blue of this 'Alternate' take on the Air Jordan 7 'Olympic' colourway salutes the Land of Opportunity with unashamed devotion, while a Stars & Stripes on the heel makes it abundantly clear just which tricolour flag these Js are waving.

The Air Jordan 7 'Olympic Alternate' will be available August 16 though and select Jordan Brand stockists, including Closet.

The 'Olympic' Air Jordan 7 is a mainstay on the retro release calendar. Ever since Jordan Brand put the AJ7 back into production, the gold-medal-winning colourway has reared its head nearly every time the Summer Games rolls around. While we are still awaiting 2016's rumoured retro of the OG, an 'Alternate' rendition of the 'Olympic' colourway is right around the corner. This all-new make-up adopts the red, white and blue of Team USA – natch – but mixes up the placement, with a midsole gradient and rich blue underlays similar to the Air Jordan 6 'Olympic'. Finished off with gold highlights and Nike Air branding on the inner sole, this shoe is a medal-worthy addition to the AJ7 arsenal.

The Air Jordan 7 'Olympic Alternate' will be available August 16 though and select Jordan Brand stockists.
