The month of May will probably be another highlight this year, especially for OG lovers. With the Air Jordan 7 Retro “Flint” the new edition of the “Flint” released in April 2006 is brought back to the market. Almost exactly 15 years later, the sneaker experiences its revival with its OG colorway.
The retro basketball shoe is officially part of Nike’s Retro Summer Collection 2021 and makes the hearts of sneaker fans beat faster. Because the shoe is not only in the OG Flint colorway from 2006 but is a true close-to-true fashion highlight.
The AJ 7 “Flint” shines in a combination of White, Varsity Purple, Flint Grey, and Black. The grey suede upper is the base for the white leather overlays, which run over the upper in a geometric shape. On the tongue, you can find silver triangle patterns that pick up on the geometric design of the sneaker. The mix of white and grey leather is accentuated by the purple elements. These include the embroidered Jumpman logo on the ankle and outsole, as well as the Jordan lettering on the tongue and the ’23’ branding on the heel. Furthermore, black details round out the design, helping to create a true OG classic revival.
In addition to the original colorway and materials, the geometric triangle design also finds its original place on the retro basketball sneaker, making the OG design complete.
With this close-to-true fashion highlight, you definitely cannot go wrong.
