Christmas just passed and with it, a slew of more fittingly-themed releases by sneaker manufacturers especially Nike as they released the latest LeBron 20 Christmas edition. However, we did not get any notable Christmas Jordan Brand releases which are kind of a bummer they are often pretty exciting, albeit not for reselling. Thankfully, concept artists have us covered with new art releases such as this all-new Air Jordan 4 Christmas edition which sports very warm upper and fitting graphical images. Presenting, the Air Jordan 4 Green Christmas Sweater! These would fly off shelves if released to the public by the Jump-Man.
The Air Jordan 4 had a very good 2022 as well as a great 2021 with a number of highly sought-after releases. These kicks were all the rage these past two years and it seems like they will continue to be going forward in 2023. Jordan Brand does have a number of them lined up already and we cannot wait to see what the reveal next in the future. The Air Jordan 4 has never had a Christmas-themed colorway ever but 2022 would have been the perfect time to release one looking at the shoe’s popularity. However, we still can enjoy concept art such as this to pass the time until Nike actually does it.
Coming to the design of the Air Jordan 4 Green Christmas Sweater, the upper’s inspiration seems obvious at first glance. They look to be inspired by classic warm Christmas sweaters that many refer to as “Ugly Christmas Sweater”, however, they do have an undeniable charm. The classic cross stitch pattern with a patchwork-like design in red leather covers the toes while white, depicting snow appears on the toe boxes and on the side panels. Meanwhile, “Merry Christmas” in red text covers the rear quarters of the shoe as well as a red tree on the lateral sides.
White netted throats are wrapped up by forest-green laces, reminiscent of the color of Scotch Pine trees, the most common kind of Christmas tree. Red leather covers the eye stays while metallic red eyelets cover all 4 corners of the shoe. Tumbled leather appears on the tongues of the shoe with patterned tags and white Jump-Man branding. Sock liners and interiors also appear to feature the same forest-green tinge, adding to the Christmas vibe. Midsoles are also dark green with red upper pieces that feature white Christmas-tree graphics while white midsoles finish off the design. For similar content and more, stick around!
