AIR JORDAN 4 RETRO FLYKNIT
Still love the Jordan 4 silhouette better than all the rest? Just wish it would get a modern day update with the technological advances that come standard with all the newest Nikes? Well, your wish has been granted. Introducing the Air Jordan 4 Retro Flyknit.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s been three decades since Michael Jordan’s commercials with Spike Lee gave this already remarkable shoe an unforgettable place in pop culture history. Now, in celebration of the AJ IV’s 30th anniversary, the classic Jumpman design is getting revamped with Nike’s space age Flyknit stitching system.
At the time of its release, the Jordan 4 was one of the most innovative and comfortable performance shoes on the planet. It was the first Jordan to integrate nubuck leather for durability and the first to implement the use of mesh fabric for breathability. On the redux, ventilation gets maximized by way of the Flyknit, which dominates the upper, while the leather is limited to the inner lining. Instead of the combination of components that made up the original, this new incarnation is defined by a variety of weaves and distinctive patterns of varying tightness and thickness creating the perception of paneling, which is otherwise non-existent.
While the shoe's overall composition is drastically different, the sentimentalist will find solace in knowing that the plastic lacing wings are still present, as is the trusty ole air pocket that has stood the test of time and remains a relevant relic and focal point in this shoe’s comfort and design.
