Jordan fans can all agree that the best formula for creating new Retro releases is often the simplest one. While there’s a ton of value behind the story-driven concepts like the Air Jordan 1 “Rebellionaire” and collaborative projects with the likes of Aleali May and A Ma Maniere, Jordan-heads are very much satisfied by easy color-swaps of originals. This upcoming Air Jordan 4, scheduled for an October 2022 release, achieves just that.
Featuring the same style of color-blocking as the Air Jordan 4 “Fire Red”, this upcoming release sees navy blue in place of the classic Fire Red hue as it takes over the outsole, inner lining, lace eyelet Wings, and more. Again, modern Jordan fans may appreciate the ornate designs and the modifications brought on by Virgil Abloh and Union LA, but there was a time when Air Jordan collectors fantasized about colorways like these.
