The Air Jordan 7‘s release roster throughout 2020 is far sparser than other silhouettes under Michael Jordan’s signature sneaker line, but the 28-year-old model has made a statement with the few options it’s prepped for the year. Case in point: an ultra-detailed, specially-packaged arrangement commemorating Jordan Brand’s fanbase in China.
While this Air Jordan retro’s “White/Chile Red/Black/Metallic Gold” palette isn’t unfamiliar to Tinker Hatfield’s design, its accompanying accents are. Lateral sides are overtaken by a barely-discernible dragon graphic; medial profiles feature colorful, traditional Chinese artwork in-between leather overlays. Branding throughout tongue, ankle, and heel, as well as teeth-like detailing on the midsole, further proffer a regal aesthetic with their scarlet and gold schemes, which match with the pair’s special shoebox. Underfoot, the Jordan 7 China completes its impressive nod to the East Asian-country with glow-in-the-dark sole units.
