The new model is said to be the long lost style of the OG Air Jordan 7 “Olympic”, which is popularly called the “Tinker Alternate”.
According to sneakers news, the brand decided to come up with the current design by keeping Tinker in mind. They thought that this is the look of the original Air Jordan 7 if Tinker took the lead in coloring the pair.
The Air Jordan 7 “Olympic Alternate” now dons the patriotic color theme that highlights the United States, which is important during these international events. The three colors are strategically blocked throughout the footwear, bringing a festival of colors that is truly Air Jordan. The blue color is placed on the shoelace area, the upper part of the ankle, as well as the outsole. The blue has a rich shade that brings a good accent to the pair. The red color can be found on the sides of outsole as well as on the heel area.
What makes the Air Jordan 7 “Olympic Alternate” unique is the use of red as well as blue colors in each piece. The left shoe has the red color as the lining and the color of the pull tab. The right piece has blue for the same areas of the footwear, making it look distinct than the other.
Branding is also taken seriously in this pair. The tongues have the Jordan texts embroidered in Metallic Gold Coin color. The same color is used in placing the Jumpman logo on the sides of the footwear. Behind the shoes is an emblem that represents the USA flag with the number 9 placed on it. The same Jumpman logo is found on the heel.
