On this weeks Episode of UN[BOX]ED Brian gives a look at the upcoming Air Jordan 7 “Ray Allen” releasing this Saturday June 1st!
For those that don’t know or have been living under a rock for like the past thirty plus years, Ray Allen is arguably one of the greatest shooting guards in NBA history. Drafted in 1996, a part of the legendary drag class that included Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson and Steve Nash, Ray Allen was selected number five overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves. However, on the draft night, he was traded to the Bucks.
The materials of the shoe, instead of a OG tumbled leather like the original pair, has been replaced by nubuck that wraps around
the entirety of the shoe. Instead of the original black outsole, it has been replaced by a green tinted outsole with shades of fierce purple. Moving over to the collar, it has been replaced by a fierce purple Jumpman instead of the original white. Maybe the most notable thing that is missing is the trademark 34 jersey number, which was located on the collar.
The Jordan 7 would not be a true Jordan 7 without the trademark 23 shield on the back. The dopest thing about this shoe that ties everything together is the Ray Allen signature and graphic on the midsole.
