Original Release: 2000

By 2000, pros were firmly entrenched in the Olympics, and players were perfectly comfortable playing in 20-year-old styles. Hence the Olympic Air Jordan Retro VI, which utilized Carmine-style colorblocking and a full leather (as opposed to nubuck or suede) upper. The U.S. men took gold, Vince Carter leapt over some seven-foot French guy, and another Air Jordan entered the pantheon.
