UPDATE: The 2016 Olympic Games are well underway and, as expected, Team USA is dominating on court. We're not going to say that the Air Jordan XXXI is solely to credit for the stellar performance of Jimmy Butler and Carmelo Anthony on court, but the Jordan Brand superstars are making the Games look like a cakewalk wearing the latest AJ heavyweight. This 'USA' make-up has been representing the Stars & Stripes proudly down in Rio and now you can make them yours.
With the 2016 Summer Olympic Games set to commence in a matter of days, the Olympic-themed colourways are flying in thick and fast. The latest arrival is this tricolour pair of Air Jordan XXXIs, ripe to don the feet of Team USA squad members Jimmy Butler and Carmelo Anthony. The All-Star Jordan Brand duo will be putting the latest Air Jordan evolution to the test down in Rio – dressed up in this patriotic colour combo, of course.
No official release date has been set for the Air Jordan XXXI 'USA' in stores as yet, but an early allocation of pairs were available for purchase at the Nike 'Air Hangar' event space in Los Angeles over the weekend.
