Bouncing back from the controversial “Freeze Out” Air Jordan 1, Marcus Jordan’s Trophy Room returns with its long-awaited follow-up collaboration, a fresh take on the “Olympic” Air Jordan 7.

The Trophy Room 7 is a reimagination of Michael Jordan’s USA-themed sneakers for the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. Red and sail suede panels share the upper, with navy landing on the tongue, laces, and inner bootie. Gold hardware represents the Dream Team’s dominant run to the gold medal and the colors of the Olympic rings are displayed on heel pull-tab.

As usual, Marcus is adding another layer to his project via storytelling. Details on the shoe indicate that this collaboration is tied to the Dream Team’s famous pre-Olympic scrimmage in Monte Carlo, when Jordan’s White Team took on Magic Johnson’s Blue Team. As the story is told, Jordan led a late comeback effort to carry his team to victory over Johnson and the blue. His message to Johnson and Larry Bird following the scrimmage? “There’s a new sheriff in town,” a message that is partially stitched along the back of the tongue. The date of June 22, 1992 is noted along the inner collar and on the box, even though it’s long been reported that the scrimmage took place on July 22, just ahead of the Dream Team beginning Olympic competition.

No other details about the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 7, including a release date, have been announced at this time. Keep an eye out for updates and new images in the months ahead.
