Air Jordan VII – Black – True Red – Dark Charcoal – Club Purple
A lot of older Jordan fans react to the ‘Raptors’ nickname with hesitation, and rightfully so; the sneakers debuted when the Toronto Raptors weren’t even a thought, but upon the 2002 Retro release, the Raptors name stuck like glue (the Raptors were one of the most popular teams of the league thanks to the talents of Vince Carter). If we could give these another nickname, it would be the ‘Shrug’; during Game 1 of the ’92 NBA Finals, Michael Jordan pulled of the greatest ‘half’ of play in Finals history, scoring 35 points while hitting six three-pointers. What makes that exhibit so special was that Michael, despite being the offensive juggernaut, didn’t truly operate around the perimeter – that wasn’t his forte. It was during that streak of three-pointers that pulled the Bulls away from the Blazers in Game 1, which let to an eventual blow-out victory. Of course, what we remember is Jordan’s iconic shrug as he jogged by the scorers table, which would later serve as one of the most iconic Jordanisms in history! A new gallery is just ahead, so let us know if you think ‘The Shrug’ should catch on as the newest nickname for these OG Jordans! Photos: taobao
Air Jordan VII
Black/True Red-Dark Charcoal-Club Purple
It's not that the shoe looks horrible. It's that this is what Nubuck used to look like. Nike has stepped it up. Materials are different than 20 years ago...
People still complaining saying they look terrible or the dmps look closer to the 2002s and the OGs when these are all black just like the 2002 pair. Yall complaining but still going to cop. Everyone said when the dmps came out that they were ugly and that you wanted a 2002 looking pair and when Jordan Brand Actually responds, you still complain. If you like the dmps more than buy them instead and stop crying smh
"The Shrug"? I like it. I loved the look on Michael's face when he passed Marv Albert & Magic Johnson saying "I don't know what's going on either. I'm in a zone". Memorable game!
They need to stop hiring these independent hypebeast writers. They all are zoning in on the same subject. Shoes are fire to me no doubt but give it a rest guys.
Guess what? They are still going to sell out! All the negativity is protocol on these shoe websites at this point...Every Jordan that came out this year was criticized to a certain extent....all of them sold out except for the Stealth 10's and Cool Grey 12's for obvious reasons! Cut the Shit and get in line.
7's are my favorite all time Jordan, simple cause of history, look and this cw was my first ever Jordan. As much as I love it everytime they retro, I know the majority have no idea wtf they're buying and are just following the herd. What a shame, I just hope they keep the Hares in the vault for another 5-10 years. Seeing they're the last OG cw to be retroed on its own.
1st off these are the "Playoff" 7's not the Raptors. People really only call these the Raptors bc when Jalen Rose was Playing with them he had these on in an away game. 2nd what happened to the OG Charcoal Accents?!?!? Many of u don't know the OG AJ 7 'Playoffs" had Charcoal Accents that appeared after a few wears bc the shoe was originally mad with both Nubuck and Durabuck. The Charcoal accents were the Durabuck. THE SHOE IS NOT ORIGINALLY ALL BLACK. The DMP's were closer to the Og's than the 2002. Good thing I have 2 pairs of the DMP's. Suede on the 7's.....smh
I hate suede shoes I don't understand why these are suede they should be leather... Then u wouldn't hav ppl complaining about the materials... But other than that these are ill
These r dope str8 fire. Please ppl give it up, all the charcoal 7's from 92 to 2012 had that ashiness to them. It don't make a difference and i bet yall still gone be on them.
Why do they keep showing us OG photos?? If that's the case, then why don't they just show us photos of other OG Jordan colorways just for the hell of it
honestly dese r trash to me n wat many ppl dont know dese r lik the 2002 retro the dmp's were closer to the og's i jus dont like these n that suede looks shitty
naw buddy they sold out too. the stealth 10s just got a restock so it looked like it sat for a min, everything sells out now
the 2002s where the actual colorway from 92 and the dmp is far offf from any jordan 7.the dmp 7 is not even close to the original.i think that release was stupid
These arent OG's bro, og's have a dark grey on them there not all black. Your thinkin of the 2002 models that were all black
Thats funny. DON'T COME TO THIS SITE THEN! You want them to have no new articles for 2 weeks because they already wrote something about a shoe??? ITS A SNEAKERHEAD SITE. If they don't write new articles they won't have a job and idiots like you will ask for more pics on a shoe ANYWAYS. Again, I'm sure there are no sneaker news writers in your house, threatening you to come to their site. If you don't like what they post, simply don't return to the site. You clearly have read the other articles for this shoe, but with all your angry talk you COULDN'T RESIST taking another look. So shut up. The site revolves around hyping up shoes....... BIG SURPRISE. Sorry to have to be the one to tell you
exactly what i said in the last article about these. it took a while for everyone to catch on to sneaker sites hyping up the other "non 11" jordans (cement 4s,3s etc) but this time its obvious. smh
@aljosa thank u for that comment, as much as people hate the dmp's, they are closer to the 2002s & ogs...cus after a while the damn shoe is 2toned IT IS NOT ALL BLACK!!
Last sentence states: "let us know if you think ‘The Shrug’ should catch on as the newest nickname for these OG Jordans!"
1. u dont have to actually READ the articles to know theres a new article on them. 2. youre crazy if u dont think theres a correlation between all the reminders/articles and hype on release day 3.i kno its a sneakerhead site but if youre a sneaker head you dont need 20 reminders that the shoe is dropping.plus theres more heat dropping in the near future than just these 7s
this is the only retro i hear ppl not complaining how its not closer to the og nd all that other bs, this retro is closer to the pair that came out in 2002 not the OG so why the f....k isnt ant complaining about these?! ppl complaind bout the white cement 4s, the playoffs, i hear ppl complaining bout both of the omlympic retros that are comming out so why no these? the OG for the charcoals not raptors were not all black nd the shoe laces were not like (oval) so why isnt any one complaining about JB f..ing about another shoe?
So he gets the point with the pics and continues to annoy himself by looking at more???? Then whines about it??? Way to defend an idiot's internet. You must have the same idiot internet where you're forced to go to articles you don't want to. You should write a letter to someone, or just keep banging your head against the wall with that guy and compain about new pics of a shoe on a site designed to HYPE UP SHOES.
1. Don't come to this site. If u don't know what to expect at this point, then you'll never know. 2. THATS THIS SITES FUNCTION. Again, BIG SURPRISE. 3. I know your a sneakerhead but checking the same site u checked the night before isn't going to lead to an eye-poppin revelation! Its not like JB is gonna all of a sudden drop some concords without months and months of teases. Which by the way, the brands leaks this info to someone. Therefor they're responsible for hype as well. Again YOU DON LIKE YOU DON BUY!!
Not to mention that the OG CW had NO PURPLE on them whats so ever. I think most of y'all are too young to even know that.
