It’s not everyday that you envy grade schoolers for their kick game. If you haven’t already felt this type of way, then caution because you may be in for a shock! Introducing the all-new Nike Air Jordan 4 ‘Pink Rose’ by Sneakerz Following on from the exclusive mock-up releases for both women and men with the Nike Air Jordan 4 ‘Dark Bloom’ and ‘Dark Lagoon’, custom kicks has returned with the all-new Nike Air Jordan 4 ‘Pink Rose’, a sneaker exclusive designed for grade school sizing. The release is somewhat timely considering many brands are launching their ‘back to school’ campaigns and Nike/Jordan brand are not any different. Only last week we saw the general release of the Nike Air Jordan 4 SE Retro DIY, a black and white rendition which had sneakerheads across the country praying for full-size release dates. The Nike Air Jordan 4 ‘Pink Rose’ isn’t any different, and we expect the mock-up to be highly celebrated.
As the name would suggest, the sneaker arrives predominantly in pink with black and white accents shining through. Pink panels can be found throughout the upper, on the tongue, jumpman logo and heel tab. The infamous Air Jordan 4 metallic lace tabs are also finished using a pink tinted metallic metal. Black accents can be found on the laces, side and front cage meshing and insole. Whilst the white hue’s feature on the side wing panels, the surrounding toe-box panel and inner silk ankle lining.
The lower remains fairly simple, the midsole showcases a white base with pink scuff guards, whilst the outsole is completely white. The air unit at the rear of the midsole is fully blacked out to further compliment the black laces and accents on the upper.
It must be said that the recent Nike Air Jordan 4 retro mock-up designs by Sneakerz are highly commendable. The range of colours and their blocking sequence laid out on the shoe are completely unique and have never been seen before by Nike or Jordan brand themselves. Although this is just a mock up, it wouldn’t be too farfetched to think that you could see this design on the streets anytime soon. Sneaker artists and mock-up designers are continuously seeking new ideas to create 1 of 1 sneakers in the real world.
