While Jordan Brand is primarily known for sponsoring basketball, football, and baseball, many fans forget that the company is also highly involved in the high-octane world of motorsports. It’s been a while since we’ve seen any releases inspired by its involvement in racing, but the upcoming release of this once employee-exclusive Air Jordan 4 colorway more than makes up for the lost time. Here’s a few detailed images.
Taking on a very similar theme to the Fire Red IVs, this pair sports a white leather upper, complemented with Game Royal lace tabs and matching lining. The tongue logo has also been embroidered in the vibrant blue. White netting stands out thanks to the use of black background fabric. Black has also been used for the straps and heel tab. A white and Game Royal sole completes the look.
Originally, only 16 pairs of this colorway were made for Jordan Brand employees, so expect this sneaker’s public release on Saturday, March 25 to be quite a big deal. The sneaker will retail for $190. Not up for standing in line? You can stay a step ahead of the game now at get a pair on eBay. Click here to go directly to the listings.
