Best Jordan 7 Colorways

Best All-Round Jordan 7 Colorway - Air Jordan 7 “PSG”

Since Jordan took over as the kit manufacturer for the French football team Paris Saint-Germain, the two have collaborated on a number of great apparel products including this Jordan 7 “PSG” colorway.

The sneakers feature white tumbled leather across the uppers which then combine with transparent mesh windows on the mid-foot and ankle panels.

You then get hints of red, navy, and gold in ode to the colors of the football club, plus Fleur-de-Lis insignias placed around the heel tabs as a nod to France.

Ultimately, we feel this “PSG” colorway is one of the best around at the moment and would match the new Paris Saint-Germain fourth kit to perfection.

Best Retro Jordan 7 Colorway - Air Jordan 7 Retro "Flint"

In 2021, Jordan remade the iconic "Flint" colorway for the first time and kept most of what made the originals so great intact to, ultimately, produce a standout Retro.

For example, the uppers have kept the Flint Grey Durabuck and white leather overlays, while hits of purple appear on the side Jumpman logos, rubber heel patches, and tongue tabs.

On the topic of the tongues, you may notice a grey, white, and black geometric pattern which is the stereotypical finish of the original Jordan 7's style.

All in all, we feel the 2021 "Flint" colorway is one of the best Retro releases as of late which is why it earns a place on our list.

Best Jordan 7 Collaboration Colorway - Patta x Air Jordan 7 "Icicle"

Amsterdam-based brand Patta is no stranger to a Jordan collaboration, but its most recent partnership saw the two company's produce this excellent "Icicle" colorway which we believe is one of the best Jordan 7's around.

What we like about the design, in particular, is the unique repeat pattern Patta branding across the midsoles to match the 'Team Patta' text across the heel tabs.

The rest of the shoes combine off-white leather with dark brown overlays which almost appear black like the outsoles.

It's also worth pointing out the small pops of red underfoot and across the Jumpman logos to add a little bit of color to this mostly muted design.

Best Looking Jordan 7 Colorway - Air Jordan 7 GC “China”

The “China” colorway is a Greater China-exclusive which we think is one of the best-looking Jordan 7's around right now.

The sneakers come dressed in white and black for the most part, with hints of Chile Red and turquoise combining effortlessly with the metallic gold details.

On the medial sides, you'll find traditional Chinese artwork in the same red, turquoise, and gold colors featured around the collars, midsoles, and underfoot.

All in all, this incredibly unique design is, in our opinion, a great example of what Nike and Jordan can do when drawing upon inspiration from Chinese culture as they have done many times with their Chinese New Year releases.

Best Unique Jordan 7 Colorway - Air Jordan 7 “Hare 2.0”

This Easter 2020 release pays homage to the beloved Looney Tunes character Bugs Bunny, hence the name “Hare 2.0”.

In fact, Looney Tunes have a long history with the brand after Michael Jordan himself starred in the cult classic film Space Jam alongside some of the cartoon's favorite characters.

The nods to Bugs Bunny are endless across the “Hare 2.0”, from the furry grey suede uppers to the hits of pale pink adorning the collars and tongues.

Despite the incredibly unique design, we feel the “Hare 2.0” colorway has to be considered as one of the best Jordan 7 colorways released in recent times, thus earning it a spot on our list.

In celebration of the model's 30th anniversary, Nike looks set to remake the classic "Citrus" colourway in 2022.

The sneakers feature black nubuck uppers teamed with hints of orange and red around the midsoles, tongues, and Jordan branding.

Recent reports state that the reimagined "Citrus" Jordan 7 is due to arrive on 2 July 2022; however, this is yet to be confirmed by Nike.

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Jordan 7's

With so many different colorways available, you may have a number of questions surrounding Jordan 7's.

Don't worry though, because we're here to clear up a few of the most common queries.

Do Jordan 7's Run Big Or Small?

Getting the right fit is essential when it comes to purchasing new shoes; however, it's widely regarded that all Jordan's fit true to size for both everyday wear and on the court action so you don't need to worry about sizing up or down.

With that being said though, you may find going a size up to be beneficial for playing in if you've got slightly wider feet as this should ensure your feet remain comfortable and supported, without feeling too restricted.

If you're still unsure, Nike usually has a handy size chart that you can use to ensure you pick up the right-sized footwear.

Are Jordan 7's Comfortable?

We've previously gone into detail as to whether Jordan's are comfortable in general, but we didn't specifically talk about Jordan 7's.

However, it's worth noting that all Jordan's, including the 7's, feature Nike Air units in the midsoles which are designed to increase padding and protection that, in turn, should also increase comfort.

With that being said, one of the most important aspects for making sure your Jordan 7's are comfortable is to make sure you get the right fit right which we touched on above.

We'd recommend leaving about a finger's width of space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe as this will make sure your sneakers are bending in the correct place as it should align to the natural bend of your foot.

How Many Jordan 7 Colorways Are There?

The Jordan 7 originally debuted in five unique colorways which have since been Retro'd in later years.

Exactly how many distinct Jordan 7 colorways have been released since then is tricky to work out as it's unclear as to whether player exclusives and subtle changes to old-school designs count towards the total.

As far as we can tell, there have been at least 30 unique Jordan 7 colorways released; however, we're unsure as to the exact figure.
