Jordan Brand celebrates this year’s Summer Olympics with a limited edition release of two of the most iconic Air Jordan styles ever worn in Olympic play.
The Golden Moment Pack by Jordan Brand celebrates the 20th anniversary of the original “Dream Team” with a Gold Medal-inspired colorway of the Air Jordan VII. The iconic Air Jordan VII takes us back to MJ’s prime as he led the talented Dream Team to the U.S.’s 10th-ever Gold Medal during the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. Black leather and suede grace the upper of the Air Jordan VII, with hits of metallic gold throughout to celebrate the U.S.’s 1992 Gold Medal run.
The Gold Medal Air Jordan VI takes us back to the 2000 Olympic Games as Team Jordan members Ray Allen and Vin Baker helped the U.S. Men’s Basketball team to yet another Gold Medal in Sydney, Australia. White leather adorns the upper of the Air Jordan VI, with the Gold Medal inspiration handling the Air Jordan VI’s iconic midsole and Jumpman branding throughout the upper.
The Air Jordan Golden Moment Pack is scheduled to release August 18th at select Jordan Brand retailers across the globe.
