Lucky number seven? The Air Jordan VII (7) – like any other Air Jordan model in the entire Legacy – holds its own importance to Jordan history; it was the first Air Jordan shoe to not feature any Nike branding of any kind, and also put a stop to the four-peat of visible Air from the Air Jordan III-VI. The AJ7 was also part of a defining moment in Jordan’s career, as MJ and a special colorway of the Air Jordan VII led the USA Dream Team to worldwide dominance. On a Retro standpoint, the Air Jordan VII hasn’t been long forgotten. In 2006, six colorways were released and a couple of years later, the Air Jordan VII 60+ Package was dropped in addition to the Air Jordan VII Hare from the Collezione Package of 2008.
This new colorway of White, Orion Blue, Black, and Infrared is set for a release in March, 2011. Some have compared the colorway to the Pacific Blue release of 2006, but Orion Blue and Infrared is a definite first for any Air Jordan model, and the white/black base offers ideal contrast for the two vibrant colors. The color combination could almost pass as a Kevin Durant PE. This colorway of the Air Jordan VII is slated for a March 2011 release so stick with Sneaker News and we’ll keep you updated with detailed images and info. via NT.
