This week’s Bring It Back column features one of the most significant and memorable releases from the past (1991). The Air Jordan 7 Bordeaux is one of the few Air Jordans that have yet to be retroed. They are definitely on the top of any Jordan fanatic’s wanted list and will cause mass hysteria/pandemonium if they were to ever release again!
The Air Jordan 7 (VII) Original (OG) – Bordeaux (Black / Light Graphite – Bordeaux) were released in February of 1991 and retailed for $125. They seem, at first glance, to feature a simple black and grey upper which is bland, but a closer look reveals a very colorful tongue, as well as bright and vibrant accents. The back of the heel features a V- Shaped emblem with his Airness’ number on it (23), as well as an assortment of the same accent colors on the shoe’s outsole. The Air Jordan 7 (VII) features a design similar to the Nike Huarache technology to create a shoe that really sticks to your foot. The shoe’s design was influenced by an African Art poster that Jordan brand mastermind Tinker Hatfield bought in Portland.
