Sneakerheads have dubbed this year “the year of the 7” and for good reason. Some of Jordans most historic Retro 7s have been rereleased this year and even some new colorways that have us retracting our “we only want OGs” statement. The year of the 7 started with the release of the “French Blue” Retro 7 and continued on with some girls only colorways and some new colorways like the “Barcelona Days”, “Barcelona Nights”, and a second rendition of the “Champagne and Cigar” collection. What dominated this year so far has been the Spring “Hare” collection with the “Hare” Retro 7.
This year is the 23rd anniversary of the partnership between Warner Brothers and Jordan Brand coming together back in 1992. The duo of MJ and Bugs Bunny dominated commercials, movies, and clothing that had adults loving the cartoon character more than kids were. Since Marvin the Martian was involved in the commercials for trying to steal Jordans Shoes; JB decided to honor him with a sneaker in his colorway.
