Air Jordan 7 Citrus set to make a comeback after debuting in 2006
Earlier this year, trusted Air Jordan news source zSneakerheadz shared a post on their Instagram account that revealed the release date for the non-OG “Citrus” Air Jordan 7 colorway.
These pairs were originally discontinued in 2006, but as part of the AJ7’s 30th anniversary celebrations, they are set to return to shelves on July 2. In 2006, these shoes were offered for $135, which rose to $200, according to reports.
Although snapshots of the upcoming retro have yet to be leaked, images of the sneaker above show that the shoe will be similar to the 2006 launch.
The upper is fashioned with black suede, red and orange hits on the Jumpman emblem, tongue and midsole. Bright colors are used to accentuate the pairs. The attention-grabbing orange juxtaposition embroidery on the shoe was a striking detail that made them look incredibly good and stand out even more. The orange Jumpman logo is placed next to the red heel tabs.
The shoe sports perforations on the sidewalls and around the heel area, which have been deliberately designed to resemble the Nike Air Huarache model, which has also incorporated an inner sock that clings to your feet.
Tinker Hatfield, known for his Air Jordan designs, developed the Air Jordan 7, with the intention of keeping them “fresh and intriguing while maintaining sophistication”.
You’ll be able to get these pairs on Nike.com and a few select stores.
How did the Air Jordan 7 come about?
The Air Jordan 7 was first introduced in 1992 in five colorways: “Bordeaux”, “Hare”, “Raptor”, “Olympic” and “Cardinal”.
Michael Jordan‘s signature shoe debuted without a visible Air unit or Nike Air branding on its heels for the first time after Tinker Hatfield took over the design department for the Air Jordan series, both of which served important visual components.
The AJ7 featured a neoprene inner bootie reminiscent of a Huarache and geometric tongue decoration deeply influenced by West African tribal culture. With the exception of the “Olympic” colorway, which featured Jordan’s “9” shirt number from the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the AJ7s featured a triangle on the heel that had the “23” branding.
Jordan Brand officially retired the AJ7 in 2002, resurrecting the “Charcoal” hue and releasing an all-new rendition known as “French Blue.” The AJ7 “French Blue” featured a predominantly white top with blue, gray and black embellishments.
Jordan Brand reintroduced the retro AJ7 for the second run in less than a decade, with 2006 arrivals seeing the return of the “Cardinal” hue as well as brand new colorways like “Maize”, “Flint”, “Chambray”, “Pacific”. Blue” and “Citrus”.
