Frank Cooker Shares An Unreleased Air Jordan 7 Inspired By Ken Griffey Jr.

As a former member of the Jordan Brand NRG team, Frank Cooker is sitting on a treasure mine of unpublished prototypes and homages to Jumpman’s legacy. Occasionally, Cooker will take to Instagram to preview an exclusive pair that was never released to the public, most recently giving us a first look at the unreleased Air Jordan 7 created in honor of Ken Griffey Jr.’s participation in the 1992 Foot Locker Slam Fest – a dunk contest for professional athletes off the court, including Deion Sanders and Barry Bonds.

Inspired by The Kid’s iconic “Swingman” line of silhouettes with The Swoosh – more specifically the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Fresh Water” – the aforementioned AJ 7 mirrors Griffey’s iconic color scheme with the aforementioned turquoise playing a prominent accenting role across the silhouette’s smooth nubuck overlays while a jet-black base sits below. Contrasting white colors are found on the laces and Jumpman logo on the collar, while crimson hues are seen on the forefoot’s embroidered Swoosh and pull tab. The red stripe of his Swingman insignia encircles the insoles of the Jumpman to conclude the Hall of Famer’s visual representation.

Enjoy a never-before-seen glimpse at the Air Jordan 7 “Ken Griffey Jr.” below, which will stay sealed up in the hypothetical vault.
