As of today, only one Air Jordan 7 is set to release during the holidays as part of the Air Jordan Retro lineup. This retro version of the Air Jordan 7 is making its first ever appearance in thie specific colorway/theme. Dubbed as simple the “Sweater”, let’s take a closer look at this vibrant accented Air Jordan 7.
The shoe is meant to symbolize the “trendy” sweater that Jordan wore for a McDonalds ad commercial that also featured legend, Larry Bird. The commercial itself was pretty dope, the sweater though, that’s another story. Following suit, or in this case “sweater”, the Air Jordan 7 comes in a white upper that is seen donning a large amount of colorful hues. Colors include Bright Concord, Soar Blue and a shade of gold and red. Black laces tie the shoe up, while the midsole peaks come in black and red. The outsole is just as bright as the accents on the upper, coming with every single color that Jordan wore in his sweater. A red Jumpman is seen on the ankle collar, while Concord and Red hits make up the Jordan branding on the tongue. Completing the look of the shoe is the ’23’ hit on the heel that happens to lie parallel to the red heel tab. Set to release November 14th, for the retail price of $190. Are you grabbing a pair?
This first thing that came to mind when I saw these Jordan 7’s was, where in the hell am I gonna find that matching sweater to go along with the shoes?!
The shoe itself looks like an ugly sweater you take to a Christmas party, but then again it doesn’t surprise me, outside the hardwood,MJ was never, ever considered to be a fashionista.
