As expected, Air Jordan 4 concept art keeps coming in as we see a steep incline in the silhouette’s popularity. First, we saw the 3rd iteration of the “Oregon”, then Red Charcoal, and now, I present the summer-ready Air Jordan 4 Aqua Marine. A sneaker that although resembles quite a few other colorways, dons its titular hues more so than on any other AJ4.
Although released in 1989, the Air Jordan 4 was such as huge success that popular demand basically forced a retro in 1999. New colorways were highly sought-after and arguably even emulated the Air Jordan 3 which at the time, was considered to be the greatest Air Jordan ever made. While hype never really dwindled, this silhouette was often overshadowed by the Air Jordan 3, 1, and even the 5. This year, however, things are turning for Michael Jordan’s 4th signature silhouette as we see releases of more iconic colorways, leading to a noticeable appreciation in value. Along with this popularity, more concept art is also sure to be sprouting up with it so stay tuned as we cover most of them! For now, let’s take a closer look at this Air Jordan 4 Aqua Marine!
A tumbled leather material seemingly makes up the build of this concept, adding to a rugged look that’s common with most Air Jordans. Aqua Marine hues cover the mudguards of the sneaker, giving off a fresh summer-friendly vibe. The same color tone also generously covers the netted mesh side panels and throats against white backgrounds.
Scuff guards, on the other hand, opt for a clean white tumbled leather look complemented by white leather eye stays. Crisp white laces envelop the netted mesh tongues and go through 4 metallic grey eyelet panels that are attached to triangular white leather pieces on the sides. These hits are reminiscent of the Air Jordan 4 Teal, but instead of dark teal overlays, this concept takes on white leather overlays for a stark contrast. Whether that’s admirable or not, we’ll leave it up to you. Teal leather tongues are also contrasted by white tongue tags with black Jump-Man logos and bordered by a charcoal trim. Collars and interiors continue to use a clean white shade while heel tabs use a matching teal tint with an embossed Jump-Man logo. White/teal midsoles and white outsoles add the finishing touches. That finishes off this concept but stay tuned as there’s plenty more where that came from!
