It's been 23 years since the original Hare Jordan VII originally released, and Jordan Brand is set to release another Retro version this weekend. To commemorate this iconic colorway, here's a rare shot of the infamous "Red Tongue" Michael Jordan VII's that were used for the old Retro Card photoshoot.
The Michael Jordan building on the Nike WHQ Campus use to have a number of original Michael Jordan PE's displayed in the lobby. This exact one pictured above was the VII representative for the Air Jordan I-XVIII display. The main differences are the obvious all red tongue, and the actual suede used on the upper panels (as opposed to a nubuck material). If you look closely, the VII used below on the Retro Cards had an all red tongue as well.
Will you #TakeFlight this weekend?
