It was a long, nineteen-year wait for the Euro-tinted Air Jordan VII ‘Bordeaux’ to come back to stores, but its long absence certainly didn’t go by unnoticed as the Bordeaux was deemed one of the thirty best sneakers of the year. It was praised for being a near-copy of the original, but did you know it could’ve turned out just a tad different? Here’s a look at an unreleased Sample of the Bordeaux VII (take a moment to see if you can spot the differences); the tongue and the heel logo features a brighter mint green opposed to the darker forest green that was used on the original design, and although it’s just a minor discrepancy, that would not have gone unnoticed either! Check out the extra shots below and let us know if you’ve got the ’11 Retro in your sneaker rotation, and stay tuned to Sneaker News because there’s a lot more AJ7 heat coming soon. via theampmlife
i copped these last year.the quality was trash.the shape of the shoe are not like the originals at all.and i dished out a couple of hundred dollers to get them after the freaking hypebeasts went crazy over them.smh...yall kids are messing up the sneaker game for real
I think it's important to have small differences between the retros to help differentiate older pairs from newer ones. This helps establish a better resale value as well, because one shoe may be loved more than another. OG anything is always better though.
I remember havin these in middle school... dat mint green jus set dis shoe off... wish they put it back in da retros last yr... either way, these are classics... 1 of my top 10 best Jordan's ever made
why did they take the green out of the released version the ogs look so much better because of the green
I wish there was more green on the actual ones that released, and I wish the green that is on them was lighter.... but not THIS light lol so yeah I'm happy with the ones I have
it dont matter, im content the colorway released again, i like my bordeauxs the way they are thats why i copped them
These were supposed to release instead of the "Raptor 7, so before you go spouting off at someone about something you don't know, make sure you know your sh** first!
