Better Air Jordan 7 Release: “Citrus” or “Chambray”

Published on

The Air Jordan 7 holds immense significance for Michael Jordan, marking his second NBA championship and leading the Dream Team to Olympic gold in 1992. Crafted by Tinker Hatfield, this iconic sneaker pays homage to African tribal art, showcasing vibrant geometric patterns on the upper and outsole. The internal bootie design ensures a snug Huarache-like fit, complemented by Nike Air cushioning and standout Jumpman logos, creating a distinctive look. Noteworthy non-original colorways like “Citrus” and “Chambray” contribute to the AJ7’s colorful legacy, explored in detail below.

In the latest iteration, the Air Jordan 7 “Citrus” returns in 2022, reviving a non-traditional colorway from 2006. The black nubuck upper, reminiscent of the original, features a Huarache-like inner sleeve and striking orange stitching. The Citrus hue extends to the “23” heel patch and embroidered Jumpman logo on the lateral collar, enhancing the overall aesthetic. The black foam midsole with encapsulated Air-sole cushioning adds a finishing touch with pops of orange and crimson.

Similarly, the timeless Air Jordan 7 “Chambray” makes a comeback in 2023, rekindling its 2006 debut. Resting on a matching black polyurethane midsole with Chambray and Light Graphite detailing, the black nubuck upper exudes elegance. A pale blue stitched Jumpman logo on the lateral ankle and additional branding, including the ‘Air Jordan’ inscription on the tongue and a “23” heel patch, contribute to the sneaker’s allure. An interior sleeve ensures a secure fit, while a webbing pull tab facilitates easy on-and-off.
