CDP VII SAMPLE

It’s been over 3 years since the Countdown Packs released from JB, and it’s easy to say that they made an incredible impact on the entire sneaker industry. With 22 pairs altogether, they paired 2 different game shoe models by their respective shoe numbers from the line. Using an ingenious method to the madness, they mathematically added both game shoe numbers to equal out to the iconic #23. It was a celebration of 23 years of greatness, and they did it in unique fashion.

One has to wonder though…How did they go about choosing the colorways that were finalized? Some packs had both pairs in original form, yet some packs had 1 OG and 1 Retro+ type colorway. Can you imagine all the possible package combinations?

Well, this pair of VII Samples that I have were supposedly a “possible” option for the VII/XVI combo. The tags have a 2008 date, and the insoles have the CDP badge stitched on them. The overall color scheme is very basic at first glance. People who’ve seen these in the past have asked me if the panels are patent leather. As you can see, they are more of a pearlized leather that’s a little more apparent in certain lighting angles. Also, another detail is the mismatched front and rear outrigger colors. I don’t believe this has been done on any other VII colorway.
