Just yesterday, Sneaker News unveiled to you two all-new Air Jordan VII Retro releases for August that utilized the triangular patchwork seen from the Air Jordan 1 ‘J2K’ from 2010. Turns out our intuition was spot on, as both Air Jordan VII’s are officially designated with the ‘J2K’ suffix also seen on the new Air Jordan 1 High that showed up last night. While the significance of ‘J2K’ isn’t quite clear, there is a definite connection to Nike’s ‘Trash Talk’ program, which aims to recycle scrap material found on the cutting room floor, essentially manufacturing 100% wearable sneakers while minimizing waste. Both of the Air Jordan VII ‘J2K’ releases are confirmed for an August 4th release and are priced at $175, so let us know which of the two colorways you like better and we’ll keep you updated on more.
