It’s Jordan Brand’s 30th anniversary and it’s the release year of the Air Jordan 7 Retro, of course an anniversary version had to release. Honestly, the Air Jordan 7 Retro 30th Anniversary reminds me a lot of the GS releases for the children. The Infrared 23 hue used on the sole suddenly looks more like a mango color. The combination with the silver, pale blue and pastel green look very much like a shoe that would usually release for children. If you compare it to former releases like the ‘Bordeaux’ Air Jordan 7 Retros, the 30th Anniversary looks less targeted towards the men’s demographic (although all things in footwear are subject to change with trends and all).
What I appreciate a lot is the quality of the materials used. Both the suede leather and the tumbled leather seem to look very smooth and soft. The fact most of the shoe’s upper is all black makes it slightly more wearable for a grown man, even though I’m still skeptical and would always prefer to see other colors. All in all, the shoe looks good and I hope a lot of ladies will rock it like me — it’ll look very very cute on the ladies!
