Ahead of the start of the Rio Olympics, the Jordan Brand is getting into the Olympic Games spirit with two special editions of the Air Jordan 1. These new iterations of the Air Jordan 1 take inspiration from the Silver and Gold medals that the athletes receive at the international games.
The first is the Air Jordan 1 Retro High ?Olympic? or Gold Medal edition. The Air Jordan 1 High features a deep royal blue and white leather upper with metallic gold accents in the swoosh and classic wings branding. The shoe also features a small hit of infra red on the tongue to complete the American theme.
The second is the Silver Medal iterations of the Air Jordan 1 High. The predominantly red and white pair has been done up in premium leather, then featuring a metallic swoosh alongside metallic wings, representing a silver medal. The additional gym red accents on the tongue, inner liner and laces of the sneakers complement its premium look.
Both the Air Jordan 1 Retro High ?Olympic? and ?Silver Medal? became available starting Monday, August 1 at select Jumpman stores for prices starting at USD$140.

The Jordan Brand is also debuting its latest iteration of Super.Fly 5 inspired by Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin.

The Jordan Super.Fly 5 also became available starting August 1. The shoe ?launched in three colorways for the suggested retail price of $150.
In addition, the Jordan Brand has also created a patriotic colorway for the Ultra Fly. The Jordan Ultra.Fly?s most notable feature is the web-like TPU molding that?s used as an overlay all over the upper. The molding comes in blue, while the layer underneath it features a red to blue color fade. Jumpman branding in infrared 23 stands out on the tongue and side of the heel, while the white midsole and two-toned upper round out the patriotic look of the shoe.
