- shades of 2004’s popular yadda
Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan 4 “Metallic” pack is a quartet of boldly-accented styles, the latest of which to appear is the striking “Metallic Green.” This crisp Air Jordan may appear simple upon first glance, but it’s packed full of Jumpman history: the color scheme draws inspiration from the OG Air Jordan 1 “Metallic Green,” and the overall look is adjacent to 2004’s popular AJ4 “Classic Green,” albeit in chromed-out style.
Fully ready for summer, the uppers are built entirely of crisp white leather, with the quarter and tongue’s signature mesh netting also done up in white. The pops of metallic green that provide the shoe with its moniker are present on the top and bottom’s signature stacked eyestays — the latter of which is attached to the AJ4’s signature wing — as well as on the heel’s large Jumpman logo.
Further dashes of green appear on the fabric tongue badge, the tongue’s trim and the insoles. Down below, a contrasting green Air Max unit is nestled into the white EVA foam midsole, and two-tone outsoles finalize the style.
Retailing for $190 USD, the Air Jordan 4 “Metallic Green” is scheduled for a May 13 release in the East via Nike SNKRS China. Although the “Metallic” pack consists of regional drops, it’s long been reported that the “Metallic Green” will arrive in the US on May 20 as well. However, these reports have yet to be confirmed by Nike.
