When you think of the Air Max line and the Air Jordan signature collection, there are 2 models that will always be within the conversation in their own right. The Air Max 95 was designed by Sergio Lozano and released in 1995 and the Air Jordan IV was created by Tinker Hatfield in 1989. Both silhouettes are respected in popular culture and lifestyle in general.
In 2020, both shoes have combined to create one make up to an extent. With the Air Jordan IV being the base of the canvas, the Air Max 95’s ever so popular and original ‘Neon’ colour way is chosen as the inspiration.
The Air Jordan IV mimics the AM95’s aesthetic with various shades of grey. Premium suede is the chosen material throughout the upper and even on the midsole. Hits of volt feature on the wing tips and on the tongue as well as on the air unit. The heel panel receives a metallic makeover in a nod to the 1995 runner while the enlarged ‘Flight’ tongue patch gets a 50/50 split on the Jumpman logo, half in white and half in volt in a mirror of the historic Air Max 95’s. Lastly, 3M-striped rope laces replace the usual flat varies for a perfect finish.
The Air Jordan IV ‘Cool Grey/Volt’ will be launching online on Saturday 21st March (available online at 8:00AM). Available in both Mens and Junior sizes, Junior sizes will range from UK3 – UK6, mens will range from UK5 – UK12 (including half sizes), priced at £100 – £165.
