A popular yet seldom seen Air Jordan 6 colorway is rumored to be returning to store shelves next year.

According to zSneakerheadz and Sneaker Files, the "Olympic" Air Jordan 6 is set to rerelease during Fall 2024. Last seen in 2012, the USA-themed sneakers were first released during the 2000 Summer Olympics. The pair was worn by the likes of Ray Allen and Vin Baker as Team USA captured the gold medal that summer, defeating France 85-75.

Most recently, Air Jordan 6 "Olympic" was retroed during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London alongside other USA-inspired pairs like the Nike Air More Uptempo and Air Force 180. This retro iteration included additional navy striping on the midsole which used more sparingly on the 2000 pair.

The White/Varsity Red-Midnight Navy colorway follows color blocking similar to the original "Carmine" Air Jordan 6, swapping out the red nubuck panels for a tumbled navy leather. Red accents add pop to the Olympic pair, which also features an icy outsole.

As of now, the Air Jordan 6 "Olympic" is slated to arrive during Fall 2024 in full family sizing. Note that the pair pictured above is the 2012 version and does not necessarily represent the upcoming release.

UPDATE (04/18): According to new reports from @zSneakerheadz on Instagram, this year's "Olympic" Air Jordan 6 retro will arrive on August 3. Grab a closer look at the upcoming release below.
