This Saturday the Jordan Brand will be releasing the Air Jordan 7 “Pantone”, a well sought after colorway by sneaker coinsurer’s all over the world. Many athletes such as Jimmy Butler(who showed off his Air Jordan 12 “Pantone” last year) and other team Jordan athletes have brought this colorway to life with an array of different models/numbers sporting the legendary blue color. The color scheme was a part of a sample collection created for the 2010 World Basketball Festival and featured shoes covered in Carolina Blue, honoring Jordans beloved Alma Mata, the University of North Carolina. The Jordan brand has released two “Pantone” silhouettes, the Air Jordan 11 that was featured in the “Gift of Flight” pack that also came with a XX9, and last years, Air Jordan 9 Low.

The shoe models after the original sampled pair, coming complete with university blue nubuck upper with an all white midsole and outsole. The Air Jordan 7 was created by legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatefield in 1992, which was the first Jordan signature model not feature the “Nike Air” branding. The asthetic was partly inspired by the Nike Huarache, a shoe known for its sock liner which was introduced to the Jordan brand with the 7. This shoe will be available in sizes ranging from preschool (11-3Y) to men’s.
