Michael wore these in the Bulls’ championship run during the 1992 NBA postseason, ultimately leading his team over Clyde Drexler’s Portland Trailblazers in the finals to capture Chicago’s second consecutive NBA title. He wore the shoes as he suddenly revealed himself to be an outside threat, hitting six threes before halftime of Game 1, contributing to his earning the Finals MVP honors for the second year in a row. The shoes, in other words, come with a special pedigree, its black nubuck-based upper complemented with jaggedly defined red and purple accents, making for an altogether unique impression. The Air Jordan VII “Raptors” in Black/True Red-Dark Charcoal-Club Purple are scheduled to drop September 1st at retailers like CONCEPTS.
