23 is Back readers will agree that Jordan 7 “Cardinals” is definitely among the hundred best Air Jordan sneakers of all time. The silhouette of this pair, which is inspired from Jordan 7 “Huarache,” is provided with maximum contrast by a smooth, tumbled-leather upper paired with a black midsole. This pair may not be as iconic as the AJ VII “Olympics,” or as playful as the AJ VII “Bordeaux “ or “Hare,” or as serious as the AJ VII “Raptors, but it is still making a return. So, Jordanheads who have been speculating Jordan 2015 release dates, the “Cardinals” is also among next year’s releases
It was back in 1992 when the Original White / Black – Cardinal Red “Cardinals” colorway of Jordan VII had been released, and the pair had made its retail debut with a price tag of $125. Considering the Jordan 2015 release news regarding next year’s remastered releases and the fact that its name was on the “leaked” list, the “Cardinals” will be a premium quality pair next year. However, it is likely that the 2015 version will look just like the OG and the Retro.
When originally released, a perforated white leather upper was featured, which served as a means of keeping the wearer’s feet ventilated. It has a black midsole, but red and white accents are also featured. The heel tab and the Jumpan logo are in gold, which are nice touches. A weird design is featured on the outsole with round ice-pick indentations, an experiment by Jordan Brand that led to the discovered that great grip was provided by this feature on the court’s hardwood. No doubt, the interesting design featured by the “Cardinals,” which was created to really stick to the wearer’s foot, is similar to the design of the AJ VII “Nike Huarache.”
April 22, 2006 marked the Retro release of the “Cardinals,” although no alternations or changes were featured. While this may seem reminiscent of its upcoming remastered release, 23 is Back readers should not forget that if Jordan 7 “Cardinals” is indeed making a comeback, then it will come with a much higher quality that the 2006 Retro. Of course, the Huarache-inspired design and the look of this pair will remain the same, so Jordanheads know what to look forward to, as they count down the days to 23isback release dates 2015.
