The celebration is underway for the heralded 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan 7 Retro series by releasing many of the new and some of the original retro releases as well. In the spirit of this celebratory occasion of the 23rd years of the releasing of the Air Jordan 7, the brand will pay homage to the Michael Jordan classic film “Space Jam” by creating a line of shoes which focuses on the Looney Tunes line-up from the film.
The Air Jordan in question is themed around the character “Marvin the Martian” but apparent with the attempt in deflecting any legal woes, the Jordan Brand decided to take the idea and inspiration from the 1992 summer Olympics with the theme of Barcelona Nights.
The Martian is Back
Ol’ Marvin the Martian may have been a little soft-spoken but boy he sure could cop an attitude when the situation called for it. This take that they employ on the shoe is far from the shy quiet type. The upper portion is an eclectic nubrik style and the overlays are immersed in black.
Soon commercials of the man himself, Jordan with his Looney Tunes pals will be making their way to your living room in all of their animated glory. Along with that, there will also be a set of promotional images to be scattered throughout the internet and in the pulp of some magazines.
Eclectic Highlights Immerse the New Classic
The one element which strikes as a little odd is that the shoe doesn’t employ any colors which are normally associated with Marvin the Martian. The shoe sports a graphic is incorporated with the use of multi-colors such as blue highlights and orange at the sole, displaying themselves on a black base tone.
The highly anticipated Air Jordan 7 Retro “Marvin the Martian” is slated to hit the shelves on March 7, 2015 at specifically selected retailers of the brand. The price of the sneakers will be running in the ballpark of around $190.00 USD.
Just try and stay up to date on all these fantastic releases which will make great collectables for the enthusiast, especially as the month of March draws closer. There should be plenty of more information regarding the upcoming Looney Tunes series releases by the Jordan Company.
The Space Jam emphasis on the Air Jordan 7 Retro is a very unique concept that should hold it’s weight with fans and newbies alike. Jordan and his creative team certainly knocked this one out of the park, or better yet, made a slam dunk.
