The Air Jordan 7 'French Blue', the latest remastered sneaker from Jordan Brand, is set to release this weekend. Ahead of the shoe's arrival on Saturday, Sole Collector's Retrograde returns with a video comparison that pits this pair against the 'French Blue' 7 that first released back in 2002. These sort of historical comparisons are particularly important for the remastered series, which has been touted by Jordan Brand as featuring shapes, materials, and details made to the exact specifications of the originals.

Retrograde is an ongoing video series in which different retro versions of sneakers will be compared against the originals to see how they fare. Previous episodes featured comparisons of the Jordan 11 'Legend Blue' holiday release from last year and the Jordan 6 'Black/Infrared' that hit on Black Friday.
