Trophy Room x Air Jordan 7: An Ode to the 1992 Barcelona Olympics
The year 2022 with still a couple of months to go has proven to be quite a year for the Jordan brand. The pre-pandemic fervor is back and some collaborations in the Air Jordan sneakers for men are being talked about. Though this year saw a lot of sneaker anniversaries and rescheduling of sneaker releases, you can expect things to get back to normal soon.

And continuing with the anniversaries, we have one more to add to the list wherein the Air Jordan 7 celebrates 30 years of MJ wearing them at the 1992 Summer Olympics. Jordan has already released the Air Jordan 7 Retro “Sapphire” in May this year. Taking it a step forward, it has collaborated with MJ’s son’s brand to release the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 7 sneakers this October. Read on to know where to buy Trophy Room x Air Jordan 7 sneakers online.
What is Trophy Room?
Now, the GOAT needs no introduction. But there isn’t plenty known about his family. Michael Jordan had three kids with his first wife Juanita Vanoy, the second of whom is Marcus Jordan. Following his father’s legacy, Marcus did indeed shoot some hoops but also got into trouble a couple of times. In 2016, after his college years, he opened a new Jordan-inspired sneakers boutique called Trophy Room. Originally opened in Orlando’s Disneyland, the shop has moved online now with Marcus Jordan as the CEO. And there is no better way to keep the passion for basketball alive.
The new Trophy Room x Air Jordan 7 celebrates the 1992 Barcelona Olympics referencing the shoe MJ wore for this summer games.
Trophy Room x Air Jordan 7 specifications
Obsidian, Dark Obsidian, True Red, and Metallic Gold colors adorn the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 7 sneakers. The shoe features premium suede uppers in beige and with contrast provided by Crimson Red. Some metallic gold hardware hit the right spot making it a true delight for sneakerheads. This sneaker takes inspiration from MJ’s and the Chicago Bull’s dominance in the NBA as well as the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and pays it in style with the detail-heavy canvas.
The sneakers have the colors of the Olympic ring on the heel tab. Further down is the Jumpman shield with MJ’s Olympic Jersey number “9” embossed on it on the right and the Trophy Room logo on the left all set in Metallic Gold. The rear of the lateral heel sides has MJ’s signature pressed into it. On the inside of the tongue is stitched the phrase "New Sheriff in Town". It is an excerpt of MJ’s infamous quote to Larry Bird and Magic Johnson during their international travels and team scrimmages.
The insoles have the date tag set to June 22, 1992, which references to MJ’s Sports Illustrated “How Sweet It Is” cover story. The words "The Greatest Game Ever, Monte Carlo" and "Welcome To the Family, 1992" which refer to the venue of Dream Team’s match-day training, are also printed on the insoles.
