Nike Air Jordan Retro 7 “Bordeux” – There are some sneakers known simply by their nicknames, and this particular Jordan 7 happens to be one of them. The sneaker is largely black and grey nubuck, but the hint of burgundy on the tongue, Jumpman, and outsole has them affectionately known as “Bordeaux.” For this retro release, Brand Jordan promises a product that is more similar to the original. Whether it’s better materials, shape, or just having some person wipe the excess glue off of the uppers Nike is looking to charge more. These are set to drop next Saturday, and retail is set at $190.
