The Jordan brand is releasing yet another pair of Michael Jordan’s retro sneakers in a rare colorway, the Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux”.
A nod to one of the most unusual colorways for the OG Jordans, the Jordan 7 “Bordeaux” returns to stores this weekend after its last release in 2011. The pair features a predominant grey color upper with thick black trimmings. Splashes of “wine-inspired Bordeaux contrasts hints of an olive-like Midnight Fog and University Gold,” described SneakerNews. The official colorway is “Black/Bordeaux-Light Graphite-Midnight Fog”.
“Inside, the wine color contrasts well with the silver of the Nike logo and with the overarching theme of the shoe,” Bleacher Report described.
Another SneakerNews report noted that the 2015 remastered version of the Jordan 7 Bordeaux has darker charcoal-colored midsole compared to the 2011 version which has a lighter grey hue. This, according to the site, is closer to the original version of the shoe released in the 90s.
The basketball sneaker will be released this Saturday, July 18, 2015 and will be available at Jordan brand and Nike stores around the world for $190. Several other online and physical stores will be dropping the Jordan 7 “Bordeaux”, like Footlocker and Eastbay. Nike NYC and Niketown have also confirmed releasing the sneaker pair, reveals Complex.
Footlocker’s Launch Locator will also help sneaker collectors and fans find a pair in their state. The app lists down stores where the newest releases will be dropped.
For fans who want to cop the pair earlier or when stocks run out, Ebay sellers can offer the pair at a higher price though.
