With a moniker like “Pure Money”, it is not surprising that you will be curious about what this shoe actually looks like. Surprisingly enough – it is nothing like the green of the dollar as Nike interprets “Pure Money” as precious metals. The Air Jordan 4 Retro “Pure Money” is one of the new Jordans in the market today with a color combination of White, Metallic Silver, and Pure Platinum. Now you know where the “Pure Money” tag comes from.
Air Jordan 4 Retro Pure Money
Size Run: Mens
Color:White/Metallic Silver-Pure Platinum
Release Date:May 13, 2017
There has been a bit of conflict about the actual ‘look’ of the shoes as the images released were purported to be not the actual colorway. Still though, those images seem to jive well with the marketed colors of the kicks.
What to expect from the design?
The purported images are purely white in the upper region with a mesh patch along both sides of the tongue. The tongue itself is white and locked in placed by white, flat laces. That is definitely good news – ordinary laces are always a plus because you can easily replace it should there be a need.
The silver color is utilized for the lace guards, coming into four different pieces. Nike has been fairly generous with this one as many kicks come only with two lace guards.
On the tongue is an unmistakable logo of the Jumpman in silver splender, occupying a large portion of the center. The soles are kept white and simple so that it doesn’t detract from the metallic accents of the shoes.
The back also displays the same Jumpman logo bearing the same silver color. In line with the Air Jordan 4 Retro silhouette, you can easily see the layering technique applied by Nike which helps add character to the shoe. As most of the kicks are built using the same material, there’s really not much to be said about texture. The mesh material that covers the quarter panel is really the only obviously different material added onto the kicks.
Oddly enough, despite the name – these kicks are not priced beyond reason. To be sold for $190 come May 13 2017, the shoes will be available in selected Jordan brand stores.
So is this item worth buying? One of the Jordan releases 2017 with a classic spin to it – these shoes aren’t really for those who want to make eye popping statements. A good choice for the quietly classy, these kicks draw the eye but not too much. If you like them – better get in line as soon as the May month approaches.
