    I like that they are making them like the old raptors, call me picky… but I don’t like those laces. Hopefully they change that.

    I know it’s a minor detail, but why are they using oval laces on these. The flat laces look better. I’ll be swapping them out when I get them.

  3. I never cared for the tilted forward jumpman on these, it looks weird/silly/lazy/fake. ?That being said, this is one of my favorite makeups of this model, and it looks true enough to the OG. ?I’ll probably cop. ?The tongue doesn’t look correct/way to light, but it might just be the picture or the monitor I’m using, or my lack of experience with the 92s.

    The shoe looks good they have to change the laces and add more too it the shoe looks like they didn’t try but I’ll cop once I cop a OG to make a comparison vid

    Why everybody tripping off the laces?! They look just fine … and the shoe itself is just READY! #LoveSneakers

    I AGREE WITH EVERYONE!!! THAT WAS THE FIRST THING I NOTICED! THE LACES R BS!!! JORDAN IS REALLY TRIPPIN’ WITH THE MODS ON THESE SHOES NOWADAYS!!! KEEP IT OG N PUT THE STRAIGHT LACES! I MEAN AS MUCH AS THEY PRICE THE SHOES, THEY COULD ATLEAST GIVE U A BETTER LOOKIN’ PRODUCT!

    These sneakers look fine. Idk why everyone is always crying about the quality or small things like the laces. It is what it is. If you dont like them, don’t get them.

      ?@theizz19?your stupid…I guess quality does not matter to you..If Im spending my hard earned money I would like the best quality period..your probably ?use to low level knock off quality.

    • Darnell Yancey

      ?@theizz19?You’re a moron, kid. Those of us who DON’T like them, WON’T get them… but what the hell does that have to do with saying these look like sh!t?? It’s pretty obvious that the quality of these are ASS. If you can’t see it, then you deserve to wear lack luster products, at a horrible expense. No way in HELL are these “worth” a $160 price tag. Walmart sells kid’s light up sneakers, with velcro straps “better” than this!

      • markmarkcity2000

        ?@Darnell Yancey?this is 2012, your’re buying jordans for the way it looks and his name, not for quality, as time passes things change, ur 160 is going towards his name brand and the appearance for the shoe period, stop talking about quality it wont change anything

        • Darnell Yancey

          ?@markmarkcity2000?That’s got to be one of the most dumbest rebuttals EVER! I understand that nothing will be the same as it was BEFORE (I’ve been wearing Jordan sneakers since elementary school), but EVERYONE doesn’t buy them solely off of “looks and the name.” There’s a lot MORE to it than that! Maybe you need to figure it out!

        • markmarkcity2000

          i didnt say everyone buys them from the looks and name, you need to learn to read and comprehend whats being typed to you, and i alrdy know history behind most pairs of jordans cuz ive been wearing them for years, but in this day and age new children are growing up and just wearing jordans cuz its a new fad to them, so techinically the majority of the newcomers are buying jordans for the looks and names, they are too young to even know anything unless they research it,?dont be ignorant

    the laces are just like how they were the last time these released, not sure how the laces were in ’92, but i kno for sure these were the laces they threw on them back in 04 i believe was when they last released. personally i love that they went back to these laces for this particular 7s.

  9. Dante Bacon

    I am cleaning out my closet of shoes i cant fit anymore. I got a size 10.5 if anyone is interested. Holla at me on eBay dbacon_kicks30.

  10. happy and sad at the same time. they kept em true w/ the all blk upper and laces. but the nubuck is cheap, i gotta cop tho cuz ive been lookin for the 02s for a while now. hopeufully someone sell the 02s wen these drop

  11. BigSam81

    I know I’m going to take heat for this but I don’t care….. these are my favorite Jordans, ever, and I am completely?underwhelmed at the quality of this shoe. I am glad they stuck with the OG color blocking and all the details are there. I just really hope that this is an early sample and the thicker suede/nu-buck comes back.???

    • Guy

      Don’t expect these to hold up to well while on the court. As years go on, Air Jordans are seen as fashion objects rather than shoes to be worn while playing basketball. Because of this (and obviously many other reasons) the quality of the shoes reduce.
      Low quality=Eh not the best shoes to be worn on the court.

    • B

      Then you dont know what your talking about. Look @ the color on the box. The ogs came out before the raptors existed as a teams.
