Buying Jordan’s is a real stepping stone for me because ever since I really ‘got into’ sneakers, I was completely against them. However, I slowly grew to appreciate AJ1s and now, the AJ7.
The Air Jordan 7 ‘Pantone’ was originally something of a myth, but thankfully Jordan Brand decided to retro the rare sneaker.
I was able to pick these up £40 under retail for £120, and the kind people of GoDRYit generously sent me across a bottle of their repellent, one of the longest lasting sneaker repellents on the market.
The shoes themselves… well they’re ‘University Blue’, which is a soft, nubuck upper, sitting atop a crisp white sole. White accents such as Jordan branding helps keep the shoe balanced and clean, and they feature a handy pull-tab to help lug your feet into the well-fitted, TTS inners.
They’re incredibly comfy sneakers. For a sneaker this size, they’re surprisingly not very heavy either. These are a very wearable sneaker.
I paired mine with black Levi’s, cream Uniqlo socks, a white tee and a vintage baby blue BAPE shirt that I picked up from Dukes Cupboard, a great spot near London’s Supreme store on Berwick Market.
They’d look equally as good with grey jeans, and I’m even tempted to pair these with the latest menswear trend (revived, perhaps) – suit trousers and sneakers.
