The Air Jordan VII represents the fusion of Nike’s Huarache series with influences derived from African tribal art, the latter of which in particular contributed lines that make this one of the most intricate and thus blocking option-heavy designs in the entire Air Jordan Legacy.  The Sevens played with wild color schemes in a way that’d previously only been hinted by standouts like the ‘Grape’ AJ5, and two of the most memorable OGs are marked by their purples among a series of other bright pops against black nubuck.  A fiercer and more Bulls-friendly expression of this colorful envelope pushing than the ‘Bordeaux’ pair retroed last year is this Air Jordan 7 we’ve come to know in recent years as the ‘Raptors’.  They come off like a classic Playoff-time Jordan but the select purple hits and just a taste of yellow on the sole makes these every bit the ’92 flashback-inducing time capsule piece as ‘Baby Got Back’.  Are these ‘too sexy’ to pass during an Olympic summer where we’ll be getting not only a few other AJ7s but also a ton of other Air Jordan heat?  We’ve ‘Save[d] the Best for Last’ with some nice new close-ups after the jump, so click through and let us know where these rank on your summertime shopping list.  Photos: Marquee Sole

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 Retro ‘Raptors’

air jordan vii 2012 raptors Air Jordan VII Retro Raptors

After this August’s release of the ‘Golden Moments Pack’, Jordan Brand will hit us with one final Air Jordan VII release – the original ‘Charcoal’ colorway that Michael wore in 1992 en route to his second NBA Title. Recognized for its unique colorway that seemed somewhat aberrant from the classic Black/Red theme of the Air Jordan line, this popular Air Jordan VII would later be dubbed the ‘Raptors’ as the Purple/Hot Red color matched the Toronto Raptors jersey – an expansion team that joined the NBA in the ’95-’96 NBA Season. That ‘Raptors’ would make a comeback in 2002 and as well as in 2009 as part of the 60+ Pack, so count this September’s release as the fourth overall issue of this colorway. This is the first clear shot of the Retro we’re getting since it was first spotted earlier this year so, check out the full shot of the OG ‘Dark Charcoal’ Air Jordan VII below and let us know if these are a must-have for you. Photos: sole-up

Air Jordan Retro Releases – Fall 2012

air jordan retros fall 2012 1 001 Air Jordan Retro Releases   Fall 2012

2011 was an outstanding year for Air Jordan Retros, with neck-breaking releases coming at us every month – Sneaker News could’ve done a Top 30 list with just Jordans! But Jordan Brand isn’t about to put a stop to its unrelenting release schedule because this Fall 2012 season, we can expect quite a handful. Confirmed for this Fall 2012 cycle are the re-releases of the Air Jordan IV Mars, Air Jordan VI ‘Olympic’, Air Jordan VII ‘Raptors’, and the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’; some notes to consider are that the Mars IV will not feature the Spike logo, and the ‘Olympic’ VII will likely be sans-FTLOTG gold stitched logo as well (more like the earlier release). Some new colorways that should be hitting us is the oft-discussed Air Jordan VI/VII ‘Olympic Pack’, and an Air Jordan IV ’23rd Anniversary’, that should be a huge hit given this year’s milestone for the Air Jordan IV. We’ve got a more specific release schedule for you below, so let us know if you think 2012 will surpass 2011 as the best year for Air Jordan Retros of this decade! via King Au on NT.
