There are plenty of exciting collaborations out there which also sell for lofty, and sometimes outrageously high prices but sometimes, if you’re a big enough fan, they may be worth it for you. Likewise, this brand-new concept is something that would turn heads and make sneaker news headlines everywhere if it ever were to come to life. This time, it appears that concept artists have mixed the luxury fashion house with the Jump-Man to create a new impressive piece of art. Presenting, the Gucci x Air Jordan 4 Baroque Brown! An impressive new addition that sports classy neutral hues, a fitting aesthetic for a fictional collaboration it is possibly inspired by.
Sneaker manufacturers are no strangers to collaborating with Parisian or other luxury giants. A recent one that comes to mind is the Prada x Adidas Superstar which initially released in an all-white colorway and was quite popular for a time. The other noticeable collaboration is Louis Vuitton and Nike’s Air Force 1 which is set to release in multiple colorways. The most popular, however, is possibly the Dior x Air Jordan 1 High and Low that were released a couple of years back and set the sneaker world on fire. On the secondary market, those kicks have been sold for as high as $15,000! If this ever came to life, it would probably have the same impact.
Uppers on this sneaker consist of primarily a leather beige build with Baroque Brown leather overlays along with canvas in a few places. The most noticeable feature is likely the toe which dons what appears to be Gucci’s monogram in a Baroque Brown hue against a beige background constructed with canvas. The toe boxes are beige leather and extend to the side panels and all the way to the rears. Moving up, you’ll find matching leather eye stays and 4 metallic bronze eyelet panels that are intertwined with more titular laces.
Throats also feature a Baroque Brown netted material which leads up to a pair of beige leather tongues with titular linings and tags that are embellished by black Jump-Man logos. Sock liners are also brown and likely lead to matching inserts with additional black Jump-Man branding. The heel tabs seem to be adorned with titular heel pieces with additional branding, complementing the mesh netting on the sides as well as the triangular leather side pieces. Dark brown midsoles and white outsoles finish off the design. If interested in more concept art, stay tuned!
