This weekend marks the return of one of the most historic Air Jordans of all time, the "Olympic" Air Jordan 7.

Making its triumphant return this Saturday, this will mark the third time this original colorway has been re-released. The previous 2010 Retro featured a gold heart-shaped basketball stitched on the heel representing the "For the Love of the Game" Pack. No new insignias here; this 2012 release remains true to the OG, complete with the number "9" on the back. These are a general release and will be available at select Jordan Brand accounts worldwide, but don't expect to see them on the shelves for very long.

Retail is set at $160 for men's sizes, while they will also be available in full-family sizing all the way down to crib soft bottoms. Enjoy the official images below as we prepare for another one of 2012s most anticipated sneaker releases.
