We’ve seen the two Nike divisions collaborate together in the past, most commonly on the Air Jordan 1, a silhouette that has deep ties within skateboarding culture. The last time we saw them team up was on the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 High “LA to Chicago”, a shoe that slowly transitioned into the Chicago Bulls colourway the more you skated in them. We expect the same level of storytelling on this Air Jordan 4 release and we know sneakerheads have got high hopes too.
An off-white leather is used for the majority of the upper on this pair. Underfoot you’ve got a sneakerhead staple with the gum outsole, a feature you can spot on a number of different SB Dunks. On the heel, find a Nike SB logo instead of the usual Jumpman or Nike Air, which is a first for the AJ4. Another major change arrives in the form of the suede toe, a detail introduced thanks to its skate-friendly ability to withstand wear against scrapes and snags. Following the standard procedure are the other traditional AJ4 features, such as the netting and wings that keep the shoe rooted in its basketball DNA.
