Jordan release dates are already slated this September. One day away from the month, we behold again another Jordan on the list – the Air Jordan 4 RetroPRMObsidian/Obsidian-White.
Air Jordan Retro 4 PRM Obsidian
Size Run: Mens
Release Date:September 17, 2016
Dubbed as the Air Jordan 4 “Premium”, the RetroPRMObsidian/Obsidian-White is Jordan Brand’s premier shoes. It’s a luxurious take for the Jordan 4 as the collection returns this fall. But then again, the Air Jordan 4 collection is coming back with a premium status. The new Jordans, including the “Pony Hair” released earlier in the Spring, are definitely different than the usual leather and faux fur make that we used to see.
So what makes the Air Jordan 4 PRM Obsidian/Obsidian-White better and different? Instead of the usual leather or its synthetic make, the Premium Obsidian AJ4 will go with a quilted leather upper. Not only that, it’s a quilted lambskin with the addition of accents done in gold hardware along with a hangtag done in a similar color.
With gold detailings, a full Obsidian upper, and a White sole offering a solid contrast, there’s no doubt that the Air Jordan 4 “Premium” is one of Jordan Brand’s best pair of sneakers. The PRM Obsidian is far more luxurious than the “Pony Hair” too.
Last April, sneaker news have already come out about this Jordan 4 silhouette making it into the retail market. Almost five months later, we see that the Obsidian will indeed be a premium release with its construction and detailing. It comes with a hefty price tag – thanks to the quilted lambskin leather make – of $400 and will have September 17 as its drop-off date from the official Jordan release dates. It’s a date you should definitely mark on your calendar especially now that it’s just a few weeks away.
The rendition of the premium AirJordan4RetroPRMObsidian is a sweet combination of Obsidian Navy in the upper plus a great White midsole. It’s a clean pair through and through and the little detailing will make you love it even more. Why, instead of a plain design, the quilted lambskin seemed to give the shoes a snakeskin-like look. The gold accents on found on the custom hang tag, eye stays, studded heel tab will also catch your eye with its shimmer and shine. The lace looks to be made of leather as well.
On a closer look, embossed Jumpmans in Obsidian graces the tongue and the heel with another Black one sitting in the middle of the white outsole. The hang tag carries a Jumpman as well with the words “AIR” underneath it.
With it’s Obsidian-White combination, the AJ4 Retro PRM is definitely a shoe to vie for this September. But since it’s a retail release, finding your size just right wouldn’t take much of your effort.
