In what many sneakerheads consider to be the shoe of the year thus far, Nike is dropping the Jordan 7 retro Year of the Rabbit editions tonight. Many of you may recall the Jordan 2011 Year of The Rabbit’s that came out back in February and sold out virtually everywhere. Believe it or not, these 7s are going to be even more difficult to cop.

These Js were released in Asia earlier this week and will be out to the public tonight at 12 a.m. For those of you who are considering try to hop in the car and roll to the store now to wait, you may want to think again. Friends in two different cities told us that there were already cats waiting in line outside of House of Hoops locations at dinner time yesterday, so your best bet may be taking your chances on Nike.com when they hit. With a super fresh box and relatively moderate retail price of $160 (man, I remember when you could get any Js for $125 tops…), you may want to consider staying glued to your laptop this evening so pick up a pair of these dope kicks.
