The return of the Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux” in 2015 is a momentous occasion for Jordan fanatics, due in large part to the shoe’s rareness. Designed by Tinker Hatfield and originally launched in 1992, the seventh installment of Michael Jordan’s signature series did away with the visible Air unit and exterior “Nike Air” branding of its predecessors. The “Bordeaux” edition featured a subdued mix of colors that played off nicely against the nubuck upper, while the neoprene tongue delivered a pop of color, bearing a unique design inspired by West African tribal art. Upon its initial release, the shoe would stay locked in the vaults until it was finally re-released in 2011. Thankfully, the wait this time around isn’t as drastic. The Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux” returns in remastered form a scant four years later.
For this highly anticipated release, the Game Plan from Champs Sports will feature the Air Jordan 7 Retro “Bordeaux,” along with a number of matching apparel pieces and accessories. They include assorted tees and shorts—all featuring the iconic Bordeaux hue—as well as the Jordan Hydro Slide and a New Era Chicago Bulls cap. Color coordinated Jordan socks round out the collection.
Celebrating the 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan 7, the entire Jordan “Bordeaux” collection will launch through Champs retail locations beginning July 18.
