UPDATE: Louisiana-based retailer Politics has brought us some mouthwatering images of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High 'Olympic'. The all-new make-up inspired by the Team USA colour palette will be hitting Jordan Brand retailers August 1, just in time for the opening of the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
As the Rio Games draw closer, sneaker brands are dropping a barrage of Olympic-themed colourways. Although MJ didn’t wear the Air Jordan 1 in Barcelona in 1992 (he wore the Jordan 7s) it hasn’t stopped Jordan Brand from asking ‘what if?’.
The Dream Team inspired colourway sees the high-top silhouette comprised of deep royal blue and white leather. Strikingly, the Swoosh and collar branding blaze in metallic Gold Medal accents adding a premium pop and a little razzle-dazzle to a solid base.
Expect the Air Jordan 1 Retro High ‘Olympic’ to drop via Jordan Brand retailers in the not too distant future. Stay tuned.
