If you are looking for a basic black colorway but with all the regal quality attached to an Air Jordan issue, you are probably waiting for the Air Jordan 4 Retro Premium. One of the more low-key Jordan Releases 2016, the fact that these shoes are so classically attention-grabbing makes them highly popular despite the fact that they are not highly advertised by the brand.
Air Jordan 4 Retro Premium
Release Date:April 9, 2016
Sneaker News has already released generous amounts of images for this model from practically all angles. A classic combination of black and white, it sports a black tumbled letter exterior with a crocodile-pattern embossing. The tongue and laces are equally done in black with only the soles created in a different color. The whiteness of the soles actually creates a perfect contrast, making the design more distinctive and classy. The midsole wedge further enhances the overall look, creating degrees in texture so that you won’t be bored by the overall black color.
Following the black theme, even the Jumpman icon is done in the dark shade. To make the logo pop out, however, Air Jordan opted to use different materials for the icon, therefore creating a distinction that makes it easy to see the signature. They used the same technique for the heel part of the shoes, allowing them to continue with the black theme while keeping the silhouette of His Airiness on the kicks. A second set of laces is also included in the package although there’s no guarantee that it’s in a different color.
This is a premium release so Air Jordan went farther than just the shoes. Upon purchase, you will also get the beautifully-designed shoe box that is unique to the model. It is supposed to have an elephant print with a blacked out Jumpman icon on the cover.
All in all, you will get a pretty sweet deal with the Air Jordan 4 Retro Premium. The Air Jordan 4 silhouette is already quite popular as it is but with the classic design, it should be even more in demand. Needless to say, the Premium Black is the kind of colorway that you can wear at any time, with any clothes, and even at any year.
Unfortunately, the premier status of the shoes comes with a cost – $400 to be exact. Set for a April 9 release this year, they’ll be sold in all Air Jordan Brand stores at possibly limited amounts. Hence, if you want these babies – better make a reservation as soon as possible!
