Air Jordan 7 Olympic 2016 Details
Over the years since the Air Jordan 7 was introduced back in 1992, we have seen multiple releases. The first came in 2004 which was followed by a ‘For the Love of the Game’ release. This model was basically the same with the exception of a basketball by the heel in the shape of a heart. The final launch came in 2012 which received mixed reviews due to quality issues.
The 2016 Jordan 7 Olympic edition will come like those prior. Featuring a white upper, a mixture of metallic gold, red and obsidian blue through the midsole and tongue. The last detail is the number 9 placed on the heel, Michael Jordan’s number when he played on the iconic ‘Dream Team’ and the 1984 squad.
