The Air Jordan 7 OG “Bordeaux” originally made its retail debut back in February 1992 at a price of $125. At a glance, it would understandably seem like a bland iteration due to its Black and Light Graphite color scheme. However, its tongues were actually quite colorful. A V-shaped emblem was added onto its heels and featured Michael Jordan’s “23.” The same multicolored detailing that appeared on its tongues could also be spotted on its outsoles as well. Tinker Hatfield apparently drew inspiration from an African Art poster for this colorway. This iteration is returning to join this year’s Air Jordan releases 2018, but in low-top form.
The Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux” & Its Variations
Back in 2011, Jordan Brand whipped up a rather intriguing and unusual variation of this particular sneaker for Michael Jordan’s animated friend from Space Jam, Bugs Bunny. Named the “Hare” Jordan 7 “Bordeaux,” the pair was designed to be large and wide so that Bugs Bunny could wear it. The next year in June 2012, an unreleased sample of the iteration was unveiled, which featured slight differences. Overall, the Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux” is regarded among the best sneakers of all time. Having been re-released back in 2011, the Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux” made another retro comeback on July 18, 2015 and retailed at a price of $190.
The Air Jordan 7 Low NRG “Bordeaux”
This year actually marks the first time that the Air Jordan 7 will be arriving in low-top form. Although it is making its retail debut among upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018, this low-top version of the model’s original colorway was actually designed as a sample back in 1992. Since its profile has been cut short, its ankle construction no longer resembles that of the Nike Huarache. However, it is still dressed up in the same Black, Bordeaux, Light Graphite and Midnight Fog color scheme. A release date has not yet been announced or confirmed, but this Air Jordan 7 Low NRG “Bordeaux” is going to retail for $140.
