Very similar to the 'Hare' VIIs, many collectors were turned off by this release due to the exclusiveness and similarity of this shoe. Many saw this as a marketing ploy by Jordan to create hype around this particular release. Well it seemed to have worked, as this shoe flew off the shelves. It was only released at House of Hoops and exclusive Jordan Brand Accounts. Nonetheless, it was a great shoe to follow the 2011 Jordans.

The addition of gold accents set this shoe off and differentiates it from the original Hare VII. The gold is decorates the heel, laces, and jumpman on the ankle collar. Contrasted with a nice true red, this shoe truly is an eye catcher. Let us know your thoughts and if you were able to secure your pair.
