The Nike Air Jordan VI And VII Will Be Released As Part Of A “Gold Medal” Pack
Yesterday, we brought you the news about the Nike Sportswear “Dream Team” Collection that’ll be dropping this summer. That collection is designed to celebrate the 1992 “Dream Team” that won a gold medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics. However, as you probably noticed, there were no Air Jordans in that collection. But you just knew that Nike would be doing something to help honor Michael Jordan 20 years after his gold medal-worthy performance at the Olympics, right?
And, here it is. To help commemorate MJ’s 20-year Olympic anniversary, it appears that Nike will be putting out a special “Gold Medal” Pack later this year. It’ll include a special colorway of the Nike Air Jordan VI as well as the Nike Air Jordan VII. Both sneakers will include some elements of gold to drive the gold medal theme home. And they promise to be one-of-a-kind sneakers.
The bad news is that we really don’t have any other information other than what we’ve already provided you with. A couple of photos of the “Gold Medal” pack have leaked to the Internet. But we’re not sure yet when or where you’ll be abler to get these. We’ll keep an eye on it, though, and you should probably expect them to drop sometime this summer to coincide with the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The sneakers featured in the “Dream Team” collection were dope. But these right here? Well, let’s just say we wouldn’t be surprised if they entire 2012 team decided to rock them. At first glance, they deserve their “Gold Medal” name.
