air jordan vii raptors retro 9 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

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.

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.

How could the quality be better based on a pic, have u seen these in person yet? No

@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!

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
