The Air Jordan 7 Low first surfaced in February 2008, but it was not an official release and the shoe never hit the stores. Its public debut was on September 27, 2018. Retail starts at $140.
These low-top basketball shoes are reported to have the same full-length Air unit for cushioning. As a Jordan shoe trademark, the Air Jordan 7 is one of the most comfortable model of the brand. It also comes with the same leather upper and modified traction pattern.
Cushion. The responsiveness of the Air Jordan 7 Low comes from the full-length Air unit embedded in its Phylon midsole. The Air technology is a durable, lightweight, and pressurized bag. Upon impact, it compresses and delivers energy return as it goes back to its original shape and volume. The midsole is wrapped with polyurethane for durability.
Traction. The Air Jordan 7 Low comes with a modified traction pattern in a solid outsole rubber. On dusty courts, minimal wiping is needed to maintain its grip
Length and Width. The Air Jordan 7 Low is reportedly true to size. Wide-footers better fit the shoe prior to purchase.
Lockdown. The Air Jordan 7 Low’s glove-like fit is primarily because of the neoprene inner cleatie. To secure the foot, the signature shoe uses an adjustable tongue and traditional lacing system.
The upper of the Air Jordan 7 Low is a combination of leather and nubuck. The combination makes the upper durable and flexible. Perforations are seen in the tongue and sides of the shoe for breathability.
The Air Jordan 7 Low comes in attractive colorways that make it great not only on the court but also off it. The “JORDAN” callout is boldly printed on the colorful tongue. The Jordan logo is found in the outsole’s heel area. Michael Jordan’s jersey number 23 is diagonally placed on the heel panel.
The 2018 release of the Air Jordan 7 Low only brought three colorways. The two basic colorways are the Bright Concord and Taxi.
Air Jordan 7 Low Bordeaux
The Bordeaux colorway mimics the original Air Jordan 7. It features a black upper with light graphite, midnight fog, and bordeaux color scheme.
