There is news regarding the Air Jordan 4 'White Oreo'! The long-awaited sneaker is expected to be released soon and is sure to be a highlight in 2021. Today we want to introduce you to the new colorway and also take a look at the release info.
A brief introduction to the silhouette
But first, let's take a quick look back. After the success of the Air Jordan 3, it was time for something new and so Tinker Hatfield designed the Air Jordan IV in 1989. After the rather elegant and refined Air Jordan 3, Hatfield opted for a more practical design for the AJ4. To improve performance, the designer added "over-molded" mesh inserts for breathability. This involved dipping coated mesh into soft plastic and then blowing air through the mesh to remove the plastic from the openings in the mesh. This new technology allows the foot to breathe more compared to kicks with leather inserts.
Also, the upper was made with synthetic leather called Durabuck. This was cheaper and more animal-friendly. In addition, you can adjust the fit of the kicks better because of the additional holes. Finally, the text Air Jordan was sewn upside down on the tongue. When the tongue is turned upside down, the text is then on the right side.
For some time now, the Jordan 4 silhouette has been experiencing a hype that is supported by strong colorways like the new Oreo look. You can find many popular Jordan 4 styles in our sneaker archive.
Something fun in between? How many of you know Spike Lee's Oscar-nominated film "Do The Right Thing"? This film contributed to the popularity of the white Jordan 4, not least thanks to this iconic scene here:

When the first leaks surfaced, many thought the 'White Cement' OG colorway would return, but that's not quite the case as we now know. The familiar 'Oreo' colourway is coming back - slightly modified and in white.
The new sneaker mainly consists of the colours white, tech grey, black and fire red. The Air Jordan 4 also has a speckled bottom and classic colourblocking.
The silhouette has an all-white upper made from tumbled leather. In addition, the midsole's eye stays are detailed with speckled 'Cement Grey' on the tech grey base. Branding is of course not missed out and so we see a grey Jumpman on the heel and a prominent red Jumpman logo on the tongue, insole and outsole. The rubber outsole is left white, which makes the silhouette look super clean.
As you can see in the picture below, the shoes will probably also be delivered in a special shoe box. This box is inspired by the speckled sole of the Air Jordan 4 silhouette.
