No amount of rain, sleet, or snow has ever stopped a true Jordan fanatic from wearing Retros in crappy weather, but Jordan Brand made sure to deliver some beefed up options fit for the occasion.
This Air Jordan 4 comes dressed in a Loyal Blue, White, Habanero Red and Black color combination. Reminiscent of Eminem’s Air Jordan 4 “Encore”, it features Blue across the base while Red lands on the Flight logo, inside of the tongue and other small details. Instead of constructed with the traditional leather and mesh on the underlays, it comes with a canvas like material which is placed on the base and tongue. Other highlights includes a fleece liner, Black on the midsole while White, Grey and Red hits the rubber outsole to complete the look.
Winter’s snow, slush, and sleet can be hell for sneakerheads who love their Air Jordans, as the inclement climate is undoubtedly rough on any sneaker, let alone a classic like the Air Jordan 4. However, Jordan Brand is presenting a solution to the problem, as they’ve given the AJ4 a brand-new “Winter” makeover. Previous “Winterized” iterations of Air Jordans saw the base model get several enhancements in the form of hiking-boot D-ring eyelets and rugged traction patterns (ie. the Air Jordan 9 Boot), but others – like last year’s Air Jordan 12 Winterized – saw the silhouette relatively untouched, with the improvements rather undetectable to the naked eye. The same principle is being used for this upcoming Air Jordan 4 Winter, which sees the ’89 classic get re-dressed in waterproof exteriors and plush interior linings. Simply put, the shoes act like a cozy boot, but looks the part of the Retro. Shop Air Jordan 4 WNTR Loyal Blue
