Chicago X, White/Cement IV, Obsidian XII, Playoff XII, Military IV, White/Red IV, Bred AJKO, Olympic VII, Black/Red (Raptors) VII, Olive IX, Bred IV, Bred XI – all of these original legends will have released by year’s end, and we’re not counting the large number of new colorways. While the term ‘OG’ still carries some considerable weight, there’s no doubt that the Retro has taken over the Air Jordan sector, and anyone born in the post MJ Bulls era could still have a sick Air Jordan collection as long as the commitment is there. In any case, it’s relieving to be able to replenish our Air Jordan stash and give the originals (and older Retros) a worthy retirement, so count on this early-September release of the Air Jordan VII ‘True Red’ aka ‘Raptors’ to quickly disappear from store shelves. A thorough viewing is just ahead, so take a look and be advised that some early pairs are floating around, like this pair that was just auctioned off by atljerseys on eBay.
Air Jordan VII
Black/True Red-Dark Charcoal-Club Purple
i got my money ready for these and the golden momments pack; but these would be better with flat laces
I kinda prefer the dmp colorway better. But these are sweet too. Hey whattaya know? These AREN'T ashy. Must mean we're getting closer to the release date, and we're starting to get pix of authentic pairs. NO ASHY LARRY B GRADES
I didn't really like the material when I first saw them. I wanted the white outline like on the 02 but this has sealed the deal. Varsity Red 4's on Saturday. These on the 1st
These are trash in my opinion. By the looks of the other comments I'm the only one that feels that way. Gon pass and try to finally get a pair of those "nike flight one galaxy" joints. Good luck to everybody thats tryna cop.
@TreyNine Feel the same. I love those Flight Ones tho.
@mesmoriz3 Still mad the stores were tight with the release and postponed it bcuz of the galaxy foams, gave no info of the new date,had no idea when they were being released. FlightClub got em for $375...thats a lil steep but I think they're worth it
Man I was on the fence about these but these pictures seal the deal for me! These look on point. Saw a guy with the 2009 pair on and they were in awesome shape! These, Olympics, Bordeauxs, and Hares are the best 7s IMO
So much better then what I got in the DMP pack a couple years ago!!! Stoked to get these come September 1st!!!
