There have been a lot of dominating and breathtaking basketball teams since the NBA formed around 60 years ago: Bulls, Lakers, Celtics, Warriors and so on. They all made their supporters believe and caused annihilated almost everyone they came across. But still there was this one team. One, that was formed by superstars which made their own team into contenders. A calibre of players you couldn’t compare with the others. 1992, Barcelona. Jordan. Magic. Bird. Pippen. Barkley. Malone. Robinson. Ewing. Drexler. Stockton. Laettner. Mullin. Also known as the ‘Dream Team’. Regarding their line-up you could have named them gold medalists beforehand. But then they would have just been victorious. They wouldn’t have been glorious. Of course, that’s what they’ve eventually been. Glorious – and victorious.
One of a kind: Michael Jordan was the second highest scorer on the Dream Team and significantly pushed the team towards success. Two weeks of pure, iconic elegance from the G.O.A.T. himself were enough to please the whole basketball world. His Airness’ athletic even surpassed the ones his teammates had to offer. Probably the must-see guy on TV back in 1992. Therefore Jordan presents the AIR JORDAN 7 RETRO TINKER ALTERNATE. The shoe that accompanied him on the way to the gold medal. Even though MJ prefered another design to this one, the Jordan Brand made the one from the sketchbooks reality and finally showcase the alternate Tinker Hatfield had in mind. It’s never too late – even after 14 years. Adorned by an iconic USA colorway – white upper with red and blue accents – the AJ7 sums up the American sneaker dream. While the red midsole slowly bleaches and turns into speckles, a golden Jumpman walks hand-in-hand with the golden lacetips. Last but not least, an USA flag patch with Jordan’s number 9 unite for an aesthetic final touch.
Other than that, the Air Jordan 7 is no different compared to the ones he wore during the 1991/92 season. Not to forget, he won the championship in that one as well. Second ring, the second one in a row. Add a Finals-MVP to that, his second. His shrug towards Magic Johnson during game 2 in the NBA Finals after sinking his sixth three pointer in the first half. All those individual moments are part of the AJ7’s legacy.Being the first signature shoe without the iconic Nike swoosh meant a lot of pressure. Flawlessly mastered. Also Mr. Hatfield was inspired by the Huarache and added a sockliner to his creation, which added much needed comfort to the seventh Jordan signature shoe. You always have to surround yourself with people who share the same ambition and strive for success. And that is why Tinker Hatfield and Michael Jordan are like chalk and cheese together. Always proud – but never satisfied.
