Filed away as my most anticipated Jordan of the summer Olympic season. Originally released in September of 2000 and worn by Ray Allen and Vin Baker in that year’s Olympic games the shoe features a red, white, and blue makeup that is a definite head turner. The color blocking that was reminiscent of the “Carmine” version of the same shoe features primarily navy front panels with a white overlay on the mid-foot and heel cup. The 2012 version has some slight changes from the original retro most notable on the black rather than white mid-sole. Personally I don’t mind the change but of course always prefer retros to be true to the original. These will return to Jordan retailers on 7/7 and are sure to sell out quick. Check out the images from KickzLab below and let the hype build!
