Air Jordan 7 SE “Afrobeats”: Celebrating 30 Years of This Silhouette

The Jordan brand is celebrating Air Jordan 7’s 30th anniversary with the release of a new colorway, Air Jordan 7 SE “Afrobeats”. This colorway draws inspiration from the original AJ7 designed by Tinker Hatfield. It pays homage to the rich Afrobeats music genre that includes a combination of West African music with beats. Also known as Afro-pop, this popular music developed in Nigeria, Ghana, and other parts of West Africa has now traveled far and wide throughout the world. The new AJ7 celebrates this diverse African culture through tribal prints in the inner bootie and tongue flaps.  

The Air Jordan 7 “Afrobeats” has dynamic lines and color-popped accents. It draws heavily from the limited edition top-selling sneakers of 2010, the Air Jordan 7 Retro Premio ‘Bin 23’ . The new AJ7 has an earthy tone compared to the prominent white in the ‘Bin 23’.

Overall, this sneaker represents African art-inspired roots. Get ready to buy Air Jordan 7 Retro SE “Afrobeats” this October at SoleSeriouss, the best online sneaker store.  

Air Jordan 7 “Afrobeats” specifications

Find yourself immersed in the colors of “Vachetta Tan”, “Taxi”, “Dark Concord”, and “Black” when you wear this Air Jordan 7 “Afrobeats”. An earthy Vachetta Tan leather sits atop the upper. Spot some hints of Dark Concord or purple on the midsole amidst the black and earthy accents. The deep gold (Taxi Yellow) color complements it to form a geometric pattern. The hazy screen-print geometric designs are also spread across the rest of the shoe in the outsole. White and black geometric stripes adorn the tongue flaps and the Huarache-like inner sleeve. “Air Jordan” is embroidered in gold and red on it. The jet-black laces contrast the earthy hue of the sneaker. An Air-assisted polyurethane midsole provides lightweight cushioning.   

The Jumpman logo is white on the black insole and purple on the outsole. A Jumpman insignia and geometric patterns bulge out and protrude from the heel to its lateral sides. The Nike Air logo is embroidered onto the back heel. This is quite contrary to the original AJ7. If you recall, the Air Jordan 7s were the first ones to stay independent of the Nike Air logo. When released in 1992, the shoe saw two daring omissions by design- exterior Nike branding and a visible Air window. It was the first sneaker to be marketed separately from the Nike Basketball brand. So, this is the first such logo treatment ever on the Air Jordan 7.
