Air Jordan 7 (Barcelona Days)
UPDATE: Don't sleep on this release today!
The 'Dream Team' has become something of a lazy nickname for the US national basketball team that fronts up on the hardcourt every Olympiad, but for those who saw the 1992 squad in the skin or on the tube know that the progenitors of the nickname are the only ones who truly deserve it. Barkley, Bird, Drexler, Ewing, Johnson, Malone, Pippen, Robinson, and... some other fella. Ah, yah, JORDAN! They bulldozed all adversaries on their cakewalk to blowing the candles out of Croatia's candy asses, and they had a lot of fun too. Pause. Those games went down in Barcelona and His Airness employed the Air Jordan 7 as his weapon of mass destruction, so Jordan Brand are paying tribute to the time with this new 'Barcelona Days' edition.
Surely that superstar squad slam dunked a few cognacs back on La Rambla after claiming the circular chemical element they came for, and they would have loved the bright lights, architecture and art of the city too. On this 7, Jordan Brand mixes a gaudy palette of Dark Grey/Wolf Grey/Total Orange and Turquoise Blue that would make Antoni Gaudi proud; it's enough to make you wanna catch a flight to Catalonia right now. If that's out of your baller budget, but sweet sneaks aren't, dust off your deck chairs and get prepped for the April 25 launch.
