Air Jordan VII ‘Raptors’
Yesterday, on the eve of Memorial Day, Sneaker News gave you just a taste of the Air Jordan VII ‘Raptors’. If you’ve been dying for a complete look, here’s the full spread of the Air Jordan VII, set to arrive in stores this September 1st; if you can recall, a similar colorway hit stores in 2009 as part of the Air Jordan VII 60+ Pack, but clearly the ones you see here has a solid-black upper which is closer to the Original as well as the 2002 Retro. Funny fact – all three editions of the ‘True Red’ (which the Jordan fan of the pre-Raptors era will refer to these as) are separated by 10 years. More of this highly anticipated Retro below, so take a look at the detailed gallery and let us know what you think. Photos: air-randy
Air Jordan VII
Black/True Red-Dark Charcoal-Club Purple
Yes PRAISE BASEDGOD! I feelin these heavy.These are way more closer to the ones that dropped 02'. I gotta cop these.
I'm impressed with JB by these It actually looks like the put layers of material on the shoe rather than 1. I'm glad they didn't go back to those horrid DMP Bulls 7s look(Yes they're Bulls people not Raptors) It'd be cool to see them in their original Bred form from 1992 but having that 02 look...I'm sold. I have to cop these. Although I do wish the silver on the tongue was more of a charcoal color. Anyways they look great. Want more pictures though.
niggas really complaining about the bottom of the shoe cause of more purple and less yellow?? They looking good to me and most of us will have them to wear not sell!!!!!!!
Not an issue but isnt there suppose to be a yellow triangle not 2 purple triangles under the legs of the jumpman
real pumped these are all black..must cop for me..these over the gold medal pack all day..everyday sorry! was nevera vi fan personally and the vii with half leather and half nubuck just do not do it for me!
Had these my freshmen year, I'm gonna have a tough time not buying these. Olympic VI, Golden Moments Pack, BRED IV....Damn you JB
No need 4 anymore pics got my money for them. Now jus waiting on the. Day bred 4's and 21's next on my list
My wishes have been granted. JB actually listened to us. This is a faithful execution of the true red 7s, and I've gotta put them on my ever-growing list lol. I'm sure you all feel the same.
Oh my goodness im copping the shit out of these. Again SN stop referring these to the OG bcuz those were a dark charcoal or dark shadow like grey not all black. Whoever writes SN articles sometimes be off base, but anyhow everybody is gone love these can't wait.
where da lace tips at. but i may cop these....definitely would if lines didn't exist and if retail was $150
Thank you jb for going back and releasing it similar to the 2002 release...also lets keep the oval laces as well
Likin da picks... on da fence tho wit da gold medal pack & fire red 4s droppin in August... but these are classic
@hozezae: I think he meant to say that he's on the fence about these VII's due to the fact that the Gold Medal pack and Fire Red IV's are dropping earlier. I hear you though, there's a lot of Retro heat that needs to be copped. I remember having these OG joints back in Junior High!
im expecting 10billion thumbs down and comment backs i know im at SN home of the 15-20yr old wannabe sneakerheads! ahahaha anyways all these lame ass wannabe sneakerheads are ganna destroy and murder this beautiful shoe....its ganna be sad...and its like i can't hold it in...these children are destroying jordan...i mean i walk around and i see this little 15-20yr old children! walking around with playoff 12s and they have no idea the meaning! its like wtf!? they walk like their shi.t doesn't stink and its annoying as hell they think their cool as hell and its like please! your only buying jordans cause everybody is doing it! sit down and shut up youngin you have no idea what your in killing the damn shoegame! s.hit man! it pisses me off! why? cause it was once awesome! and amazing to cop jordans! it was! it was like man im killin em i got somthing nobody else got on! feeling good and now its like i seen 10people with my same shoe on...why the hell do these children! want the same sh.it everybody else got! be your damn self!!! **Note** if YOU!! started collecting jordans last year! YOU are a wannabe sneakerhead no questions asked!
well now us youngins are in the streets making what you make in a week we make in an hour allowing us to TELL AN OLD BAG LIKE YOU " man i'm killing him i got something this OLD RAG doesn't! man what a good feeling :O "
yea BUDDY! dONT BE PISSY cuz some 12 year old took the last pair in your size! What do u think man??? You think Jordans are only for people who started collectin em in the 90s?? Stop whinin! Imitation is the highest form of flattery. And NO, no ones tryin to be like your pissy ass walkin around all mad. Theyre tryin to be like Mike. And the other thing is, u coulda started your collection last night and read the shit outta wikipedia and kicks on fire to get your precious knowledge about the story behind the shoe. Everybodys gotta start somewhere man. So quit actin like u got the 1st air jordans in 85. If u stop worryin bout other people and gettin all mad then maybe u can use that energy towards gettin ur Js n boxin out the 12 year olds. If not then STOP WHININ! If you're a true OG Jordan head then u should already have the retros that be comin out ANYWAYS. So just stop
Sit down brah. Sure the "game" is messed up, but people are going to do what they want. Are you saying Jordans only look good on people over the age of 20? "They have no idea the meaning"?... Wtf do you mean, they're shoes dude?! You put them on your feet, no instructions included.
its old guys like you that don't like us younger "sneaker heads" and make us feel like dirt. give someone else a chance to collect shoes, no one cares you have been since 1988..youre still the same as everyone else
