Nike isn't even hinting at a Marvin the Martian connection.

From Nike.com:

"Inspired by the nighttime lights of Barcelona, the newest color of the Air Jordan 7 Retro is a snapshot from the historic summer of 1992. The upper features black nubuck and smooth leather with pops of Infrared 23 and Retro."

Those Ambassadors are slick. Cool mid cut (and what looks like a lighter solution to the lateral support offered on the XII).

@Feedmekicks The pull that closes the zipper gets separated from one side. Some people have complained about it online. Not sure how common it is.

First Kyries. Had to cop (they were better than the Nike iD pair I designed).

Generally, I'm a LeBron low fan, but I need to see another colorway (one w/out print).

Like the shoe, don't like the price. Maybe I'll make a run at these and just cop fewer pairs of Js and Nikes.

Well, at least they got the shape right this time, but is that a laser graphic instead of actual laser etching? This is getting comical.

So it is the shoe he was showing off on a plane last year.  The materials are a surprise, but I won't rule it out until I see more pics from Adidas.

Had to look up the original retail price (it was $175 in '05). Makes me wonder what the XX Laser will sell for.

Still amazes me how badly they butchered these. If the XIII is the heart of the upper (and JB has made some recently), why does this retro have a Frankenstein toe?

@"C.E.O." This Don C version is a casual model (one that looks like it could stand up to regular wear). I wear my Js. Folks that concerned with scuffs should stop buying shoes.

The luxury/lifestyle route has worked well with the II (and that blue is sick), but I want to see the OG colorway get back to its Italian roots with a high quality leather treatment. Make it happen, JB.

I don't like IVs with leather wings, so this was a pass. Interested to hear what folks think of the quality of this first "remastered" release. It will help me decide if the Oreos are worth it.

@macksvolume  In the past, Nike has donated some of the profits from these sales. It would be cooler to hear them say "During February, we're donating X% of of our profits to the following charities." Making Black History Month sneakers just belittles the observance.

@4NSix Some people buy the shoes to wear them, not have them sit in a closet or resell to someone who missed out. You sound like a reseller, which is cool if that's your thing, but you're probably not going to find a lot of sympathy on this site.

Calling this one a draw. That Kentucky blue is perfect on the 12, but the Kyries will be the next shoe I cop.

Good move. The design potential for the upper is virtually limitless. I wouldn't mind a clear red sole like the bred XI, but these are nice.

Look at the history of BHM releases. The price goes up vs.GR versions of the same shoes. That extra $ is probably what Nike donates to charity (and hopefully those donations are still being made).

@dracyn I don't mind the gray as much as I hate that new midsole. I understand what they were trying to do with the paint, but it totally changes the look of the shoe.

So we get a $20 price bump for better quality (we hope) instead of the annual $10 jump we're used to. Copping the Oreos and that's it. JB is trying to get us to that $200 mark and we've got another year before it happens. After that, how high can GR retros really go at retail?
