For the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4, several new colorways of the model will be joining next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019. You may already know about the two Air Jordan 4 colorways that draw inspiration from Spike Lee’s comedy–drama film, Do the Right Thing. Based on the Photoshop illustrations, one of the two iterations seemed like it borrowed the colors from the Gucci stripes. Of course, they are both actually inspired by the Italian flag and “Sal’s Pizzeria” from the film. In addition to these two colorways though, many others will arrive next year to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4.
After a long time, an upcoming Air Jordan 4 colorway that will join next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will be featuring patent leather. When it comes to the sneaker models from Jordan Brand’s signature line, patent leather is typically associated with the Air Jordan 11 since its mudguard overlays are made up of the glossy material. The Air Jordan 11 was the first model from Jordan Brand to feature patent leather as a signature element. Of course, this does not mean that patent leather has not appeared on other Air Jordan models in the past. In fact, even the Air Jordan 4 has featured patent leather before.
Will Mark Wahlberg‘s latest exculsive sneaker from Jordan Brand end up joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018? It likely will not. Being one of Michael Jordan’s oldest friends and having a longstanding relationship with Jordan Brand certainly seem to have its perks. They apparently include receiving exclusive Air Jordan colorways every now and then. This indeed happens to be the case with Mark Wahlberg, who is a diehard Air Jordan fan with a collection worth envying. Although the photo at the top is a recent one, the Air Jordan 4 “Wahlburgers” PE you see in it was actually first seen earlier this year back in June.
One of next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of Spike Lee’s comedy-drama film, Do The Right Thing. The film was originally released back in 1989. One of the most noteworthy locations in the film was Sal’s Famous Pizzeria. Spike Lee’s character Mookie works there as a delivery man. Radio Raheem, one of the film’s most prominent characters, is also killed there. Since it will be the thirtieth anniversary of the film next year, Jordan Brand will be releasing two Air Jordan 4 colorways inspired by the fictional yet iconic pizzeria. Here’s a clip from the film actually featured an Air Jordan 4.
