Chicago X, White/Cement IV, Obsidian XII, Playoff XII, Military IV, White/Red IV, Bred AJKO, Olympic VII, Black/Red (Raptors) VII, Olive IX, Bred IV, Bred XI – all of these original legends will have released by year’s end, and we’re not counting the large number of new colorways. While the term ‘OG’ still carries some considerable weight, there’s no doubt that the Retro has taken over the Air Jordan sector, and anyone born in the post MJ Bulls era could still have a sick Air Jordan collection as long as the commitment is there. In any case, it’s relieving to be able to replenish our Air Jordan stash and give the originals (and older Retros) a worthy retirement, so count on this early-September release of the Air Jordan VII ‘True Red’ aka ‘Raptors’ to quickly disappear from store shelves. A thorough viewing is just ahead, so take a look and be advised that some early pairs are floating around, like this pair that was just auctioned off by atljerseys on eBay.
