Not so long ago, many Jordanheads were under the misconception that Air Jordan 7 “Barcelona Days” was the very Marvin the Martian-inspired Air Jordan sneaker, but it turned out that this was not the case. However, that was only until this nearly all-black iteration of the Air Jordan 7 was introduced and is being referred to as the “Marvin the Martian” colorway ever since. There have been speculations that there is actually no official link between this Air Jordan 7 rendition and the Warner Bros. cartoon villain. However, it still appears to be one of best Marvin the Martian-themed Jordan sneakers that has or is scheduled to make a retail debut on one of the upcoming 2015 Jordan releases.
Just recently on August 5th, the “Marvin the Martian” colorway of the Jordan Super.Fly 4 arrived at retailers. However, Jordanheads who would rather cop a Marvin the Martian-themed iteration of one of the retro Jordans, then this upcoming Air Jordan 7 colorway is for them. Moreover, it also happens to be the 23rd Anniversary of the Air Jordan 7, which also hit the shelves in a Bugs Bunny-themed rendition earlier this year. So, it makes sense for Jordan Brand’s seventh signature model to receive the Marvin the Martian-treatment, which something that has never been done before.
The Air Jordan 7 “Marvin the Martian” has an upper made up of remastered premium black leather that resembles that leather upper of the “Barcelona Nights” renditions. However, apparently taking inspiration from Marvin the Martian’s armor, the upper also sports traces of Poison Green, Purple and University Red throughout. University Red predominantly makes an appearance on the neoprene tongue and the outsole.
Many Jordanheads probably recall that Marvin the Martian actually co-starred with Michael Jordan in Space Jam. So, fans of the villainous character can rejoice and mark August 15th amongst the other Jordan release dates 2015 on their calendars because only a few days remain for the Air Jordan 7 “Marivn the Martian to be up for grabs.
