Jordan Brand’s “Topaz Mist” Pack includes three GS-exclusive Air Jordan releases 2019, which includes a new iteration of the Air Jordan 7. So far, no new colorways of the Air Jordan 7 have arrived at retailers in 2019, but that will all change in the coming months. In case you do not already know, an Air Jordan 7 “Ray Allen” PE dressed up in the color scheme of his former team, the Milwaukee Bucks, will hit the shelves on June 1. The same month, an Air Jordan 7 with 3M reflective uppers from the “Reflections of a Champion” Pack will make its retail debut on June 8th, 2019.
Jordan Brand’s Summer lineup of Air Jordan releases 2019 will include this Air Jordan 7 PE inspired by Ray Allen’s 1996 NBA Draft selection. The 1996 NBA Draft is regarded as the greatest one in the history of the league. The 1996 Draft features some of the talented players of NBA history. Much like the 1986 NBA Draft introduced the world to the legendary Michael Jordan; the 1996 Draft brought the iconic Ray Allen to the forefront. This year actually marks the 23rd anniversary of the 1996 NBA Draft. Jordan Brand is celebrating the occasion by releasing this Air Jordan 7 “Ray Allen” PE.
Jordan Brand’s three upcoming Air Jordan releases are “Reflective” varitions of OG colorways from the Bulls’ first championship three-peat. Starting with the Air Jordan 6 that you can see above, you may have recognized that this “Reflective” is using the OG “Infared” colorway as its base. At the time when the Air Jordan 6 was introduced and Michael Jordan laced up in it, he was on his way towards leading the Chicago Bulls to their first NBA Championship victory. Instead of nearly all-Black, its uppers are now completely reflective. Black still appears over the heels, laces, midsoles and tongues, and the Infrared-colored accents are the same as the original.
An Air Jordan 7 “Bucks” paying tribute to Ray Allen’s early career was among some of last month’s final Air Jordan releases 2019. Nike’s “Art Of A Champion” collection from last year included an Air Jordan 28 colorway that was dubbed “Locked and Loaded.” This particular colorway drew inspiration from and was a nod to the historic three-point field goal that Ray Allen scored during the 2013 NBA Finals, which tied the game and enabled the Miami Heat to eventually win. Following his NBA draft, Ray Allen had been traded to the Milwaukee Bucks and the Air Jordan 7 featured here is inspired by that period of his career.
