The special “Banned” edition of Jordan Brand’s unique Air Jordan 1-inspired XXXI may not be hitting shelves until September but, with the Olympics in full swing, the silhouette has already made its debut in a special make-up for the host nation. Now Team USA is getting in on the action as the Nike imprint has readied a patriotic red, white and blue edition of the shoe for a release.

Rocked on-court in Rio by the likes of Carmelo Anthony and Jimmy Butler, the American take on the XXXI adopts the same gradient motif as its Brazilian counterpart, in this case fading from blue to white from the toe to the heel across the Flyweave and leather upper. Naturally, red accents prevail throughout, hitting everything from the Flight Speed tech and Dynamic Flywire to the Zoom Air units and embroidered Jumpman. Finally, an icy translucent outsole highlights the shoe’s cushioning and provides traction on the hardwood.

Team USA’s Air Jordan XXXI drops today, August 10, for $185 USD at Jordan stockists like Sneaker Politics.
