The Air Jordan 7 Finds Its Groove With New “Afrobeats” Colorway

The Air Jordan 7 has been pretty quiet in 2022, but Jordan Brand’s turning up the volume on the retro model later this month with a brand-new colorway. Dubbed “Afrobeats,” this new take nods to Tinker Hatfield’s inspiration behind the original design: the tribal artworks, prints, and colors of Africa.

As such, this colorway features bold geometric patterns embossed onto the “Vachetta Tan” leather upper – the padded neoprene tongues also display a printed pattern done in black and white. The shoe is stamped with embossed Jumpman logos on the lateral ankle collars and features black Nike Air embroidery on the heels. Stark-black laces contrast the tonal base.

Underfoot, this sneaker boasts foam midsole units done primarily in black, though glossy “Taxi” and “Concord”-colored pieces accent the midfoot and heel portions. The rubber outsoles are done in the aforementioned color combination, with additional bright-red hits added into the mix.

Looking to secure a pair? The Air Jordan 7 Retro SE “Afrobeats” will be available on and DTLR stores on October 22nd. Retail is set at $210.
