This Saturday, the Air Jordan 7 Retro "Marvin The Martian" will be hitting shelves across America... again? You may recall that back in March a pair of black Air Jordan 7 Retro were released that many people referred to as "Marvin the Martian". Those people obviously never spent any time in a certain Spanish capital after dark, as those shoes were officially tagged "Barcelona Nights" by Jordan Brand. Now we are presented with the real, official "Marvin the Martian" 7's.
The differences between the "Marvin the Martian" and the "Barcelona Nights" are subtle but vital. Most obvious is the upper. Both are all black, but where the "Barcelona" was leather and nubuck, the "Marvin" is all premium leather. Next is the tongues: the "Barcelona" had a jagged, multi-colored geographic pattern while the "Marvin" opts for solid red. The accent colors on the "Marvin" are much more true to the actual cartoon character as well, with red, green, purple, orange, and grey replacing the infrared, teal, light green, and graphite of the "Barcelona". Another new feature of the "Marvin" not seen on any other 7 before is the red angular graphic on the insole of the neoprene liner.
Finally, the cartoon space villain we have all been waiting for has made his official debut on an Air Jordan 7. Get down to a City Blue near you this Saturday morning to grab your pair of "Marvin the Martian" 7's... before they turn into "Barcelona Afternoons".
