AIR JORDAN VII

Nike VP of Creative Design Tinker Hatfield may be best known for his work with the Air Jordan, but he’s responsible for so much more. Air Max? His. The entire concept of cross-training? Yes. He also came up with something called Huarache, a line (a cross-trainer, a runner and a basketball shoe) of minimalistic ultra-lightweight sneakers.

The reason I bring this up now is that the Air Jordan VII was imbued with Huarache DNA (they came out around the same time). The sleekest and most slimmed-down Air Jordan yet, the VII shared the Huarache’s minimalist upper and lack of a Visible Air bubble (the first Air Jordan to not have Visible Air since the II).

And while the VII might be best remembered for its ad campaign (featuring a certain wascally wabbit), it should be remembered as the most successful on-court shoe Michael Jordan ever wore. Another NBA championship and an Olympic Gold medal with the Dream Team. The lightweight shoe was a heavyweight on the court.

    that looks great on my feet. what u guys think the duece duece is gonna look like?

  • Dr. Drae

    I am a huge fan of the Jordan Brand, and I actually own every Jordan shoe made(excluding Team Jordan shoes). And with that said, I beleive the VII are the worst looking of his shoe line. They don’t have a good fit and look like a kind of “cartoonish” version of the Jordan VI. He was doing too much in an attempt to look original and unique. The shoe looks best when it is simple and clean, the VII’s are far from that.

    the 22′s cool but it aint what i expected but them bitches thoed

  • TheJumpmanFrontman

    The XX22 are ugly. The only color that looks ok are the first to be released, ‘white, red, and black’(big surprise), but anyways check em out at pickyourshoes.com. They got some pairs early and are selling for about $20 cheaper than retail. Also, nicekicks.com has more info about the shoes and upcoming releases.
