They were on sale for less than $200 around my way which is Long Island, NY and I still did not consider copping. Please re-read the bolded part of his statement and you will know what he is talking about. 


Yeah, i know. I just wanted to hint that the 2002 were not on point at all too. The purple was much brighter than the purple on the OGs (rather like dark concord).
And i really disliked the shiny polished outsole tip at the toe because none of the OGs or 2006 retros had that.
The 2002 strangely had the new semi-round laces while all 2006 retros had the classic flat laces.
So i want the 2012 retro done better than the 2002. If the kind of craftmanship is same like the 2011 Cardinals and Bordeaux, i'm already very satisfied.


My bad, I did not mean to come at you in that manner. For all this time I did not even noticed how different the laces of the OG's, 2002, 2006 and 2011 pairs are until you mentioned. I need to compare my 2002 Black/Red/Charcoals, 2006 Cardinals and 2011 Bordeaux this for myself.smiley: nerd 


Nah, it's all OK dude, i think we just misinterpreted each other's original postings smiley: happy
About the laces:
1992 OG's had very standard flat Nike laces.
2002 retros had semi-rounded laces with metal tip (Jumpman encarving).
2006 and 2011 retros had standard flat laces with plastic tip (Jumpman encarving).

I loved how you didn't use "Raptor VII".  One of the worst handles ever.  The Raptors weren't even born when the VII's originally dropped.

'Charcoal' is actually labeled on the 02 box as the color. But like he said above, I call them blk/red or Playoff 7's.

Because i saw the ogs during my school days, and yes The toronto raptors were born in late 1995 along with The vancouver grizzlies. I think most people who call these raptors Were too young back in 1992.

I have never referred to them as "R*****s"

I refer to every black/red Jordan as Playoffs cause the Bulls always wore black sneakers during the playoffs.
post #75 of 3704
when thousands of ebay post has these listed as raptors a decade later after its initally retro, da sailboat has sailed as far as "renaming" this nickname...

i mean its simple, it addresses da prominant purple colorblocking all over da shoe, and its easy to remember...whats da big deal? smiley: laughsmiley: eyes

i was thinknig of cool greys or some other retro + colorway up in here only to find out OP has a agenda to change da course of "nickname history" cuz he thinks raptors is ehh smiley: laugh

Why do dudes make such a big deal over a nickname smiley: laugh

And it always boils do to "I like the nickname I made up more than the nickname other people are using" 30t6p3b.gif

They're the Raptors, everyone needs to just deal with it and let it go. It's not that serious

Thanks for clarifying. I was confused as well laugh.gif

Mods should edit the title to "Raptor 7s Releasing"

Title is misleading.

"Renaming" a nickname happens all the time:

Example: Puff Daddy becomes P. Diddy then Diddy

Air Max III becomes Air Max 90

Air Max IV becomes Air Classic Bw

It makes sense to call the Heineken SB Dunks "Heineken's" because that was the inspiration for them

The Orlando 7 Jordan from the DMP was inspired by the Orlando Magic color scheme - calling them "Orlando 7s" makes sense

"Hare 7s" make sense cause Bugs Bunny was in the Super Bowl commercial as "Hare Jordan" wearing that colorway

These Jordans were not inspired by the Toronto Raptors, so I don't refer to them as "R*****s"

This...why are you guys butt hurt over the nickname of a shoe you didn't design?
post #87 of 3704
Imma call them "mine" when they come out. I like the black ones myself with out the grey. Imo but ill take either one.
post #88 of 3704
Calling them the raptors sounds un intelligent to me but to each their own call them black and purple dog turds if it makes you happy. They'll always be playoff vii's to me

Playoff VII's is the only nickname I'd correlate with these shoes. smile.gif
post #90 of 3704
Yo, forreal though? Ninjas are arguing for the nickname of a shoe? 30t6p3b
On a different note, I'll probly pass on these since I got the DMPs from a couple years back in nice condition still.
