Jordan 4 Retro
This Jordan 4 Retro is distinguished by its refined tones and classic details, creating a suave sneaker. It begins with the smooth nubuck upper in Cool Grey, which is constructed from layered panels in the forefoot, through the length of the shoe, around the collar and over the quarter. This last section contains mesh netting that aerates the foot, while Cool Grey triangular structures rise up from the flanks to provide additional support. These are attached to Dark Charcoal lace cages that accommodate the Cool Grey laces at the top of the eyestay, with another pair keeping things secure at its bottom end.
This same classy shade of grey appears again on the large nubuck heel panel that merges upwards into a fan-shaped pull tab at the top. Its centre hosts a shiny chrome Jumpman logo outlined with a delicate line of stitching for added effect. Below this, the central overlay curves down towards the midsole, which is made up of a white portion around the heel and sides, with black through the toe and the lateral flank. A visible Air unit punctuates the heel, offering the wearer high levels of comfort underfoot.
Underpinning the whole sneaker is a rubber outsole with multidirectional herringbone indentations placed across its surface to deliver solid traction to the wearer. Most of this feature is Dark Charcoal, but there is a smooth white section below the arch of the foot whose centre is marked by a Varsity Maize Jumpman. The toe cap is also white, and just behind it is another segment decorated in the bright yellow shade of Varsity Maize.
Inside the shoe, Dark Charcoal reappears once more, this time blanketing the inner walls and the sockliner, which hosts a white Jumpman. This logo stands out strongly against the dusky background provided by the insole, as does the Varsity Maize Air Jordan patch sewn into the Dark Charcoal material covering the back of the tongue. This trio of tones comes together one last time on the square label on the tongue’s other side. Its exterior is Dark Charcoal, its Flight text Varsity Maize and its Jumpman white, thus completing this sneaker with a captivating collection of contrasting colours.
