Could care less what anyone calls them. Just not gonna be told THATS what they are.
when you google raptor VII's what comes out? ill wait.
that nickname cemented on stone since 2002..ya gotta get over it
so why are these Milwaukee buck VII's..bucks don't rock these colors no more & these aren't Ray Allen's PE either...
get over it folks.
da train has left da station on raptors.
and da IV's in da exact same color are called raptor IV's
only old curmudgeon folks at this point still standing on a soap box.
when you look for em on ebay, goat, and stock x, its raptors.
Dont have anything to get over. Call em "Raptors" all day. Its cool. Just dont tell me thats what they are. Could care less what the internet says they are.
Raptor 7 yes. Buck 7 no.
There’s a Ray Allen PE that looks nothing like these that are a Buck PE with Tumble leather.
If the “Raptor” 7 dropped in that same tumbled fashion I wouldn’t call them Raptor 7s.
Question. Anyone wear 2002 playoff 7s on the Raptors team that season multiple times?
I know right. **** ain't even the correct release, pictured. It also ain't even that serious.
And why do I hold weight into what Stock X says. Thats a 2009 DMP advertised as a 2012. I guess I should just conform to what they say. Just because the internet says they are " " does not mean **** to me.
da point still remains, if you're looking for a pair, you're typing raptor VII.
All is good man. People can call them what they want. I will just call them what they are. I just dont get with nicknames.
Yea just to chime in, I feel exactly the same as you. I don’t understand why the raptor 7s were called raptors when they weren’t that initially...I get the color scheme matched during the 02 retro but they didn’t exist in 1992 & didn’t wear purple when the DMP/2012 releases dropped so it’s being based on what exactly?
For the record I’m more accepting of the raptors nickname for the 4s because they were initially Drake’s ode to Toronto’s original color scheme before his whole change to Adidas/Nike situation. Drake’s tie-in was removed but the pairs still released. That coincided with Travis Scott’s Houston Oilers themed 4. Completely different from these 7s.
I’m the guy that refuses to call OG pairs by their new nicknames being made up now though, like the “candy cane 14s”, bred ____(I hate bred, I’ll say black/red, playoff, all star, whatever that pair actually was), etc
Younger guys at retail stores talk about Flu games and HGGs, Breds and Candy canes and I cringe. Thats just not what we did back then. We called them by their year or color. That simple. I get up with people that do that cuz I get it. Its when guys say "they are called (insert hypename) lol" is what pisses me off. Alot in here jumped on the wagon several of us have been on for a while. The internet is not gospel. Believe it or not.

Still in but I don't think I'll be able to stomach the retail price (255$ CAD)!
I’m so freaking excited about these babies. Gonna be getting these and the reflective cardinals next month.
Death to these corny *** names by kids who never even seen the man play live in person!
Raptors weren’t even a team in 1992. Call them whatever you want but “raptors” was never in the picture for me. These were my first Pair of Jordan’s back in 92, I was in the first grade; my grails. Whoever started that needs to grab some bench. Take 15.
Can OP update the RD in the title? Are these releasing June 1 or 22?
I've learned not to let it bother me that the Black/Charcoal/Red are referred to as the "Raptors" at this point. It's not a hill I'm going to die on. I just want another GOOD release, maybe a remaster, that's like the ones from the 1992 Playoffs. However, I do like these Black/Purple 7's, I won't buy a pair because I'm sticking to my OG Black based colorway rule when it comes to everything (The 2's I'm going to have to make an exception on if they ever remaster those again), but I like the shoe.
Pushed up to the 1st. Originally on the 22nd.
Me - "Hi, I'm here to pick up my blk/cement IV's"
Worker - "You mean the Breds....?"
Me - 'No bro......."
If I could rep you more than once I would.
