We briefly covered the Air Jordan 7’s in our “Air Jordan 7 Orion” blog. However, the Jordan brand has released the highly anticipated and highly coveted Air Jordan Retro 7 “Bordeaux” edition. Before we delve into the concept and name, let’s take a brief moment to recognize the greatest basketball player to ever walk.
The Air Jordan 7’s were originally released in 1992 with Jordan gunning for his second championship. Originally debuted in the All Star game, they were overshadowed by the return of the great Earvin “Magic” Johnson who had been recently diagnosed with HIV. This marked one of the few times that Jordan lost out on an All Star MVP trophy. Regardless, Jordan claimed his second championship that year.
“Bordeaux” is the name of a town in France that produces some of the smoothest and most expensive wine and is immediately noticeable by it deep red hue. Famous for its “First Growth” wines, in many respects Bordeaux is the leader in vintage wines and the blueprint for what we consider good wine today.
Combine these two concepts and what we have is one of the most unique and sought-after Retro 7 releases in recent memory. Like the smoothness and uniqueness of the wine, Jordan’s game became the trendsetter too superstar’s today. Welcome to the Air Jordan Retro7’s Bordeaux.
