Jordan Brand surprised everyone today with a preview of their upcoming spring 2016 collection. Featuring a wide array of JB silhouettes including the Air Jordan 2 and the uniquely styled Air Jordan 5 Low, among the many things that caught our eye was the Air Jordan 4.
If you look closely, a few design differences are noted between sample pairs and what will likely be inline releases. On the Air Jordan 4 specifically, we noticed in the above image that the left shoe has a leather tab and leather wings and its counterpart on the right does the same aesthetically, but in plastic/rubber. Upon further investigation, we were able to confirm that the shoe on the right, with the plastic/rubber tab, will be the iteration to see a general release – the leather option looks to be sample that didn’t make it to production.
Historically rubber/plastic tabs were featured on the OGs, while leather made its debut on early retro releases. Sound off below and share your thoughts on this Air Jordan 4 and all the upcoming launches from Jordan Brand’s Spring 2016 preview.

It’s one thing to retire from a profession. It’s another to retire yourself from a respective relationship. However, it’s an entirely different feat to retire yourself from a culture that you may love more than life itself. Well, that’s exactly what Kansas City Royals pitcher and lifelong sneaker addict Jeremy Guthrie did as he self-professed his retirement from the sneaker game. Paying homage to the first retirement of Michael Jordan, Guthrie took time to hold a mock press conference that incorporated all of the bells and whistles that normal announcements of this magnitude warrant. Nonetheless, major props to Jeremy on his incredibly creative announcement of his “retirement”. Hopefully, you can pull a “MJ” and comeback to the game, in due time.
To see more from Guthrie, peep his retirement video below and check his illustrious sneaker collection as well, as the Major League pitcher caught up with our very own George Kiel in this episode of Sneak Peek.
