Dutch streetwear brand Patta and sportswear giants Nike have a solid partnership that spans over 10 years. Both coming together on numerous occasions, although on runners and lifestyle footwear like the classic Air Max 1 and Air Span II.
However, on a basketball sneaker it’s different as it is new. Patta have become the first European based brand to partner with Jordan Brand to create their own iteration.
As for the model, the Air Jordan VII serves as a timeless classic through a host of colourways and is one of the silhouettes Michael Jordan wore on his way to becoming a global icon. Winning numerous awards throughout the regular season, he also led the USA to a gold medal at the 1992 summer games in Barcelona.
On the other hand, Patta’s co-founder Guillaume Schmidt and creative director Vincent van de Waal both chose the Air Jordan VII as their favourite but also due to its uniqueness.
The duo curated their design with the spirit of Patta, of what their shop and community stands for, electing a warmer colourway than the traditional grey, black, and Bordeaux look of the OG. The sole of the shoe is branded with the Patta script, the first Jordan VII sneaker to feature a logo underfoot, making the shoe more personal and closer to home.
The Air Jordan VII OG SP ‘Icicle/Sequoia’ is now SOLD OUT.
