Make way for royalty with one of the Jordan releases 2017 as these kicks become available on the 5th of January. One of the new Jordans, the shoes will sell for $190 which is more or less what all other Air Jordan sneakers are sold for.
So why would you choose this one amongst the others? To start off, it is a “Royalty” edition, bearing the colors of black, metallic gold, and white. The Air Jordan 4 silhouette is not bad either as it utilizes a nubuck upper and pristine white soles.
A Glance at the Design
The shoes make good use of a layering approach with a mesh as the initial layer topped by more traditional plain black leather. The addition of gold is what really sets these kicks apart from all other Air Jordan 4 releases in the past. The gold is generously displayed on the shoes starting with the Jumpman logo on the tongue. The word “Flight” is placed on the bottom of the logo, also inscribed in golden coloring.
Gold metallic pieces are used as buckles for the laces, adding to the appearance of Royalty. Combined with the pure black coloring of this Air Jordan 4 release, you can tell that Nike aimed for “class” and “timeless” with this particular piece. In all honesty, it is tough to find another mid-ranged Nike shoe that carries the same distinctive prestige.
The laces are kept basic with a black coloring and a flat design. That is actually a good thing since this means you can easily replace the laces should you lose them at some point.
The tongue is also done in solid black with only the Jumpman logo as its marking. From the back, you can see another Jumpman logo – this one also using the same gold coloring.
The soles are done in basic white which helps set off the black and gold color combination. This creates a very clean feel to the shoes – making it perfect for practically anything from a McDonalds visit to walking the red
The bottom portion is a fairly basic combination of black and white with a Jumpman logo on the center – this one done in black.
All in all, it is a pretty sweet piece for shoes priced at just $190 by Air Jordan. If you are going to buy just one piece this year, this is definitely a good bet as the shoes hit that perfect balance of class, style, and pricing.
