Up-Close with the Air Jordan 7 “Flint”
The Air Jordan 7 doesn’t quite get the of its four preceding silhouettes, but there are certain colorways that make you stand up and take notice. OG’s aside, there’s not many colorways that catch your attention, but there are a few — one of which is set to make a return next year, the Air Jordan 7 “Flint”.
First released in April 2006, the Jordan 7 “Flint” became an instant classic due to its atypical palette, shifting tones between dark greys and whites, and a certain familiarity to original colorways in the “Playoff” (Raptors) and “Bordeaux”. The silhouette, which had typically been popped with vibrant colors throughout, had found itself in a muted blacks and greys, resulting in a lifestyle option of the like’s we’d never seen from the silhouette. Moreover, the ashy-grey suede uppers and rarely-used purple accents provided a finish that was unique to the colorway and is still something of a rarity amongst any Air Jordan retro.
@SHOF is reporting that the pairs will be returning in the Spring of 2021, and it is expected to arrive with a close resemblance to the original, but we won’t know just how closely aligned they will be until first looks do arrive until then, enjoy a detailed look at the original 2006 pair here below, and be sure to keep our eyes locked on our official Twitter account for updates.
