Another one! That’s right, following the vast success of our previous two Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Paisley pack’ concepts, we are back with yet another. This time we see the emergence of the Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Paisley Purple’. Off the back of the “Paisley Blue” and last weeks “Paisley Red”, the new “Paisley Purple” offers a new and refreshing color concept arriving exclusively in women’s sizing. Here we take a closer look.
Straight off the bat, it’s easy to see why this specific sneaker mock-up is dubbed as a women’s exclusive. The colour palette features several tones of pink and purple hue’s that have proven to be a success amongst our female sneakerhead community. The Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Paisley Purple’ arrives with a predominately purple base with volt pink accenting. Soft tumbled leathers and suede’s make up the upper, which not only convey a sense of premium manufacturing but allow the sneaker to hold more depth aesthetically. In addition to this, we see the use of soft purple velvet on the inner ankle lining and tongue cushioning. With many materials being so generously added, we wouldn’t put it past Nike, or Custom Kicks for that matter, to offer silk laces alongside the conventional cotton pair featured in this mock-up. The volt pink hues can be found under the notorious side mesh caging on each side of the sneaker, as well as on the metallic lace tabs which sit upon each corner of the lacing ladder.
The Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Paisley Purple’ comes with some real wow factor! In true traditions, the concept boasts a paisley print bandanna panel which surrounds the toe box. Deep purples and pinks within the inner pattern, enable this sneaker to stand out on its own and generate a lot of hype within the kick game.
Finally, the midsole and outsole of the sneaker is finished with block style colour blocking, an all purple aesthetic. Although this is just a creative design set forth by Custom Kicks, the ‘Paisley pack’ Nike Air Jordan 4’s have gathered a serious fan base, which may influence the design team over at Nike and Jordan. That being said, it wouldn’t be too naïve to think that we could expect a general release similar to this over the next few years. Stay tuned!
