Originally making its debut on the Air Jordan 7, which MJ would wear during road games, the release earned its nickname “Raptors” due to its similarity to the color scheme of the Toronto Raptors.
The Air Jordan 7 “Raptors” is the original and always popular “Road” colorway of the Air Jordan 7. Worn by Michael Jordan throughout the 1992 NBA Playoffs, this is the shoe he won his second championship with the Chicago Bulls in. In the years since its original 1992 release, the black, red, and purple colorway has garnered the nickname “Raptors” due to its similarity to the original color scheme of the Toronto Raptors. This is the retro release of the Jordan 7 “Raptors” from 2012.
