Air Jordan 7

The Air Jordan 7, Michael Jordan’s second championship shoe is also one of the most memorable in his career. Most people will associate the AJ7 with the Dream Team from the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. But some remember the good times when the Chicago Bulls won their second straight NBA Championship.

Tinker Hatfield took what improved and further developed the features. There is no more visible Nike Air unit in the heel, but rather it now runs full-length inside the thick PU midsole. The Air Jordan 7 officially came out in 1992 and took inspiration from a sculpture Tinker saw.

This shoe also debuted the first and only time Huarache technology is used on an Air Jordan. Unlike the Nike Air Huarache, the AJ7 has no rubber heel counters, only cut-out sections on the sides of the ankle collar. Inside is a neoprene sock-like sleeve that further improved the fit of the shoe.

Nike got rid of the heel and forefoot Nike Air setup and replaced it with a full-length Air unit. Placed inside the PU sole, the shoe provided plenty of cushioning and made the heel-to-toe transition smoother.

Raised sidewalls on the forefoot and rear serve as stabilisers to prevent ankle sprains.

The Air Jordan 6 and the Air Jordan 7 share a similar traction pattern but done differently. Both pairs feature round craters on the outsole that act as suction cups.

The latest Air Jordan basketball flagship model, the Air Jordan 37 borrows design cues from this icon.

Fans of the 2nd MJ championship sneaker were happy with the return of the OG colourways like the Cardinal.
