Release Date:May 16, 2015
When it comes to sports, one of the most famous faces in the industry would be Michael Jordan. Therefore, it is not a surprise that when it comes to sports shoes as well as athletic footwear, the Air Jordan brand is also one of the most popular and highly anticipated product launches. Coming at the heels of The Air Jordan 1 Retro Mid “Hare” that was released last April 4 near Easter, the Air Jordan 7 Retro “Hare” will be released on May 16th.
The Air Jordan 7 Retro “Hare” is a Looney Tunes-inspired retro release and is probably one of the most iconic sneakers of the Air Jordan line-up. It was last released back in 2008 as part of the Countdown Pack. Fortunately, it will now be released on its own and is part of the Jordan Brand 30 year anniversary line-up. This re-release comes in for the Air Jordan’s 23rd anniversary.
This sneaker is obviously a nod towards famous Looney Tune rabbit, Bugs Bunny. In fact, it was named after the cartoon hare after the now-legendary commercial of Michael Jordan as well as Bugs Bunny teaming up to beat a gang of bullies in a pickup basketball game. This commercial showed bugs wearing the Air Jordan 7 “Hare” which immortalized this shoe forever. The legendary shoe was also inspired by Michael Jordan’s hit film, Space Jam, back in 1996 where he teamed up with Bugs Bunny and other the Looney Tunes to battle aliens in a rowdy abd hilarious Basketball match.
The shoe is a White as well as Grey on the upper parts with a True Red accents throughout including the soles. The tongue shows ab Orange and Green accent that further emphasize the “Hare” theme. The “Nike Air” branding is seen on the insole of the sneakers and is wrapped up by the retro “Hare” card.
Retail price for the shoe is yet to be released but avid followers of the Jordan Brand should know that the price will probably be on par with the previous Air Jordan sneakers. Some retail sites, however, are reporting the pair to be priced at 190 USD.
