The Air Jordan 23 is back and stronger than ever as Nike continues their releases for the year 2016. Some are re-imagined classics while others are the first releases from Jordan but all of them are undoubtedly impressive both in design and quality.

The Air Jordan 7 “Tinker Alternate” is one such design, following a classic silhouette but with a twist. Deciding to go for color without losing the classy touch, the Tinker Alternate is a beautiful balance bold and blending.
To start off, the main body is done in white with splashes of blue and red as accents in strategic locations. The outsole is done mainly in geometric shades of blue with red taking the upper layer of the soles. Sandwiched in between is a strip of white with black flecks that add to the overall style of the shoes.
The tongue is a study of blue, red, and silver coloring with the unmistakable Jordan wording on the center. The Jumpman logo is kept on the sides of the shoes, the icon itself done in pale yellow with the blue coloring as a background. On the heels, you’ve got an artistic rendering of what appears to be the American Flag with the number 9 in the center.
What really sets off these shoes is the layering of colors, creating depth and texture with just one look. Nike decided to go simple with the basic white, blue, and red colors – but the impact of the combination is far from simple. With very obvious delineations between one color to another, it’s a very striking design to wear on your feet. As for the laces, Jordan opted to keep them white and therefore neutral. Replacing the laces with either blue or red will be enough to tip the scales in the impact of the shoes and if you want to make a mark, this simple customization will turn the Tinker Alternate into a brash colorway.
One of the August Jordan releases 2016, the Air Jordan 7 “Tinker Alternate” will sell for $190 – which is well within the average cost of the kicks. The only question left is whether they’ll be available in large numbers or if Nike has decided to limit the number of production. Either way, if you find that these kicks call out to the inner shoe-lover in you, make sure to jot your name down in the list of buyers.
If you’re not into the “Tinker Alternate” however – and let’s be honest, not everyone may like the kicks – then just sit back and wait for other Jordan releases this year.
