Air Jordan Retro 7 TD Cleat

Jordan Brand has been very interesting when it comes to their involvement in football; their cleats can be seen constantly on the feet of NFL players in PE editions, but it seems like their involvement with football at other levels can be extremely minimal.

As a big sneaker guy, as well as having a huge basketball background, seeing this fusion is nothing short of amazing for me. The Air Jordan Retro 7 is a personal favorite of mine for street wear, and seeing this shoe as a cleat has made it appealing to cop a pair. The only drawback to getting this cleat is that I am unsure about mobility or how the cleat will feel on the turf. Last year, I bought the pair of Air Jordan Retro 6 cleats only to find them heavy, bulky, and something that I could not see myself playing in at a really high competitive level. Needless to say, that could have been due to only trying the cleat out twice, but my first impression of trying out a Retro Jordan cleat fell short of my expectations.

Upon examining this cleat, it looks as if Nike has used the new remastered materials that they have been implementing with their Retro Jordans this year which is a cool touch. The cleat is inspired by the Air Jordan Retro 7 – obviously – which contains the neoprene bootie that provides the lockdown and comfort. Cushioning uses Lunarlon, providing lightweight and responsiveness. Their bottom plate includes a 12-cleat configuration to help with speed and traction on the field.

I’m very curious to see the response to this cleat as well as possibly trying them out. Are you excited to see Retro Jordan cleats available to the public? How do you think these cleats will perform? Do you hope to see more color ways or other Retro Jordan cleats release? Share your thoughts below in the comment section. You can grab them now at Eastbay.

  1. Definitey agree about the Retro 6 TD. Awkward to move in, don’t lace right, and bulky. These are much better though. Snug fit, stronger build.
