Every Air Jordan retro sneaker has some history behind it. You can go down the line of each retro and learn about certain highlights Michael Jordan had in them. The Air Jordan VII is without a doubt one of MJ’s most prolific sneakers due to the history and some of the accomplishments Jordan had in them.
When the sneaker released in 1992, it was during the time when MJ was officially bigger than the game of basketball. His signature line moved away from the Nike Swoosh branding and took on the Jumpman logo. Combine that element with perhaps the most successful year ever by a pro athlete in any sport (second straight MVP, NBA leading scorer seven times in a row, All-Star eight times in a row, back-to-back champion, NBA Finals MVP, gold medal with the Dream Team, and many more accolades) and you can see why the VIIs are one of the most sought-after sneakers in history.
Obviously, 23 is a special number in the Jordan Brand and when each shoe reaches its 23rd anniversary, the releases are always on point. Last year we saw a lot of Air Jordan VIs and this has been the year of the VIIs. It started with the release of the AJ VII “French Blue,” the return of the “Hare” Jordans, and now it continues with the arrival of the “Bordeaux” and the much anticipated Marvin the Martian colorway will have you ready to dominate the summer.
The “Bordeaux” was a true standout when MJ donned them for the first time during the 1992 All-Star Game. This is perhaps one of the biggest releases for the Jordan Brand this year and you can bet a lot of sneakers collectors will be on the prowl for them.
With the release of the Bordeaux dropping at Champs Sports today, here are 5 Reasons Why You Can’t Miss the Return of the Air Jordan Retro 7 “Bordeaux.”
