Being a member of the close-knit Jordan Brand community has resulted in incredible perks in the shape of extraordinary sneaker creations that are not available for sale. As the year comes to a close, the Jumpman has unveiled one of its most awe-inspiring endeavors yet, exclusively for those who represent MJ in the WNBA.
Unveiled by Kelsey Amy, the color designer for Jordan Brand, this Air Jordan 4 known as "First Class" showcases a captivating array of green tones. The rich hue can be seen on the rubber outsole, sting-ray textured mudguard and tongue label, creating a sense of refinement that is enhanced by the luxurious accents found on the upper.
To begin, the Jumpman emblems adorning the tongue and heel are constructed from solid gold, possibly plated, with a diminutive diamond substituting the basketball within the iconic Jumpman figure. Positioned atop the textured leather found in luxurious Italian-made leather products, the logos grace both the tongue and heel.
The concept of "First Class" is conveyed through a hangtag that cleverly resembles a regular baggage tag. Jordan Brand adds their distinctive touch with the iconic elephant print, while also paying homage to PDX, the renowned international airport in Portland, Oregon. The opposite side proudly showcases the WNBA logo, positioned above the year 2023.
Credit must be given to Jordan Brand's innovative team for conceiving an extraordinary color scheme for the Air Jordan 4.
By the way, Air Jordan 3 'Black Cat' will return with elephant print, too.
