In 2006, Jordan Brand re-released the Air Jordan VII is a variety of colorways new and old. The ‘new’? The Flints, Chambrays, Pacific Blues, etc.. The ‘old’? The Cardinals. The ‘not at all’? The Air Jordan VII Low, seen here for the first time since it was created years ago. Low-top Air Jordans have been a strong parallel to the Mid from the very start, as low-cut AJ1s and AJ2s were produced during the originals years, and only later did Jordan Brand dabble with the shorter stature with its later Air Jordans until the early 2000 Retro releases. The Air Jordan V, VI and VIII, for example, were reproduced as Lows, but never the VII, although it’s apparent that these samples were originally intended to become available in the Spring 2006 season alongside the other Retro colorways mentioned earlier. This White/Citrus Orange/Blue colorway is actually quite a nice Summer colorway, but the focus is obviously on the build of the shoe rather than the colors used. Your thoughts on the Air Jordan VII Low? Would you cop if Jordan Brand decided to releases these? Check out the gallery below and if the serious collector in you needs these in your collection, head on over to the listing from soleofseattle10 on eBay.
wowow made in Taiwan, so it has way better quality from this past released sneakers, nd they actually look good
wow- awsome concept...but we decided to go with an 11 low instead of releasing a shoe that's new? This must mean low 7 is in the works. Love the clear outsole- nice nice.
NO THANKS, SOME THINGS JUST DON'T NEED TO BE CHANGED. THEY TOOK AWAY HALF OF WHAT MADE THE SHOE UNIQUE.
I remember seeing these samples on sneakerfiles.com in 06 during my junior yr. of high school. These are nice!
I can't stand this as a mid. If it was a regular 7 then I think it could sell but as a mid it just doesn't work. The colorway if good though.
Nice light colors, good with shorts on a hot day, they would sell out now but alot of ppl would passed on em back then, even me. If the dropped now id be on the fence.
