The Air Jordan 4 debuted back in 1989, so as you may already know, next year marks its 30th anniversary. Yet plenty of new colorways of the model have already joined this year’s Air Jordan releases 2018. By the end of the year, you can expect a few more Air Jordan 4 colorways to hit the shelves, including the women’s “Singles Day” colorway and the other one that is featured here. The second colorway you see here did not initially have a nickname. However, it has recently been dubbed the Air Jordan 4 “Tattoo” due to the tattoo-like basketball-related graphics that cover its entire uppers.
In addition to being a special holiday for single men and women in China, Guanggun Jie or Singles Day is also the Chinese equivalent of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Indeed, it is currently the largest, global offline and online shopping day and this year marks its 10th anniversary. Even though Singles Day is meant to be the opposite of Valentine’s Day, this particular Air Jordan 4 iteration is almost completely dressed up in Fire Red, a shade of the hue that is typically associated with love. Additionally, it also features Black- and White-colored detailing, and is equipped with Gum Rubber outsoles.
The photos of the Air Jordan 4 “Tattoo” that you see above were shared on Instagram by HanZuYing (@hanzuying). As mentioned, the Air Jordan 4 “Tattoo” gets its nickname from the basketball-related graphics that resemble tattoos due to the Black and White color scheme of the uppers. However, Fire Red can also be spotted over the “Jumpman” branding on the tongues, the inner tongue tabs, the lace holders, and the soles. “Air Jordan” is also embroidered on the inner tongue tabs in a font that resembles graffiti. In addition to Fire Red, the rest of the midsoles and outsoles are covered in the same Black and White.
The Air Jordan 4 “Tattoo” will make its initial retail debut exclusively in the Greater China region on November 11th and the Air Jordan 4 “Singles Day” hits the shelves on the same day. Later this year, the Air Jordan 4 “Tattoo” will become globally available on December 29th. Once they end up joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 during the Holiday Season, both of these colorways will retail at the same price of $190.
