The first Air Jordan designated as an “All-Star” shoe will make its highly anticipated return this weekend.
Part of the original 1992 lineup, the “Bordeaux” Air Jordan 7 features a distinctive black and grey scheme, complemented by a colorful palette of yellow, green, blue and bordeaux. Last released in 2011, the popular colorway is being remastered for the first time, meaning apparent improved quality, a true-to-the-original black midsole and Nike Air branding.
The “Bordeaux” 7 has a sneaker release date of Saturday, July 18 for $190.
Air Jordan 7 Retro “Bordeaux”

Viewed by many as the best color of the Air Jordan 7’s, the bordeaux color-way, featuring a nubuk upper of black and grey, featuring hints of bordeaux, blue, yellow and fog green, was the perfect shoe to represent the colorful times of the 1990’s when they debuted.
Nike rarely ventured away from the Chicago Bulls and North Carolina Tarheels color-ways for the Air Jordan line, at the time, making this color-way all the more special. Adding to the Bordeaux’s significance was seeing MJ lace them up in the 1992 NBA All Star game. Or perhaps watching the king of basketball practice his moonwalk in them, while joining forces with the king of pop, in Michael Jackson’s music video for Jam. Whatever the case may be, the Bordeaux’s get even better with time, just like aged wine. Make sure your kicks stand the test of time by using the Universal from Sneaker Shields.
