Confirmed! Air Jordan 7 ‘Cardinal’ 2022 Retro
Release: 26 November 2022

Style Code: CU9307-106

News of this release was first published on March 29, 2022.

Update August 8, 2022: Some months after rumours surfaced of the Air Jordan 7 ‘Cardinal’ returning, official images have emerged – confirming the OG colourway’s reissue this year. Check them out above.

Nike and Jordan Brand alike have a heck of a lot of sneaker anniversaries to celebrate in 2022, and one of those is the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 7. In celebration of the milestone 'birthday,' Jordan Brand may be bringing back the legendary Air Jordan 7 'Cardinal' this holiday season.

One of the Air Jordan 7's most famous colourways, the 'Cardinal' was worn by Michael Jordan during a portion of the 1991-92 NBA season. What's long made it popular is its unique take on a Chicago Bulls colour scheme. Of course, there's all the red, white and black you'd expect to see, but a little extra flair is provided by rich 'Chutney' hits on the cut-out collar's Jumpman logo, the heel tabs and the outsole.

Pictured above is a look at the 2011 'Cardinal' retro via GOAT, as images of the 2022 release have yet to be made available. However, its style code and colour description – 'White/Black/Cardinal Red/Chutney' – have been revealed. It'll retail for $200, and though Jordan Brand haven't announced any date of arrival a release date of November 26 (one day after Black Friday) has been floated. Be sure to keep it locked right here for more info as soon as it's made available!
