As Nike wraps up its year of anniversaries, its Jordan Brand subsidiary is following suit. The Air Jordan 7 somewhat quietly celebrated its 30th year in business as the retro sneaker remains a staple in Air Jordan lineups each year. While the shoe didn’t receive as much attention as the Air Jordan 1 and 2, the latter of which had a standout year in terms of production, the Air Jordan 7 still played a key role with collaborations that included touches from Trophy Room, Bephies Beauty Supply and Quai 54.
Now, to close out the year, the Air Jordan 7 is set to launch in a new “Black Olive” colorway that taps into the sneaker’s history with its arrangement. Its design features a nubuck upper that operates with an olive base and black overlays in a combination reminiscent of 1992’s “Bordeaux” colorway. Unique patterning last spotted on this year’s “Afrobeats” pair also makes an appearance at the forefoot and heel. Adding to the color scheme, “Cherrywood Red” branding and midsole accents combine with hits of “Chutney” to complete the look.
Release for the Air Jordan 7 “Black Olive” is currently expected to take place December 28 via Nike and select retailers at a price of $200 USD. Expect it to appear on the SNKRS app in the coming weeks.
For more in the world of footwear, a release date for the Nike ACG Air Zoom Gaiadome GORE-TEX “Trails End Brown” has finally been set.
