On Saturday, January 24, the Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan VII French Blue retro. The color originally appeared in 2002 while Michael Jordan was with the Washington Wizards. The shoe is the second release in the new "remastered" Jordan line using superior quality materials, craftsmanship, and attention to detail intended to make the shoes as close to the original shoe design as possible.
The Air Jordan VII French Blue is a retro for the first time of this particular color/style, originally released in 2002 that also is the first retro of 2015 to feature the 30th anniversary box that is supposed to accompany all Jordan retros released in 2015. While we know that the already released Air Jordan 4 Columbia and the upcoming February Air Jordan 4 Oreo come with the original styled box, it is assumed that all Air Jordan retros that are in production will feature the 30th anniversary box which is a considerable departure from the original/traditional box. I give it two huge thumbs down, but I spent the money for the shoes and not the box.
Check the pictures and let us know what you think. The Air Jordan VII French Blue retro seems to have been a massive undersell as sites like Footlocker and Finish Line still have a full run of sizes available as of Sunday evening, a full 36 hours after the shoes were released online. We can only assume that people are holding out for one of the other announced colors of the VII. The Hare and Marvin the Martian editions of the shoe are just a couple of the different variations of the shoe set to release in the new few months.
