Just one more week is left before the remastered Air Jordan 4 “Oreo” finally hits the shelves after much anticipation. It is undoubtedly on its way to become one of the most sought after Air Jordan releases of this month. No doubt, it is not an uncommon sight for 23isBack readers to spot celebrities and sportsmen laced up in Air Jordan sneakers; however, it makes perfect sense in the case of this “Oreo” colorway of the Air Jordan 4. Even though February 21st, 2015 is one of the Jordan releases 2015 on which this sneaker is slated to arrive at retailers, someone was lucky enough to sport the pair much earlier.
Considering that Drake is a Jordan Brand ambassador, it should not surprise 23 is Back readers that Drake has been lacing up in both regular and special Air Jordan sneakers. In fact, the Grammy Award winning rapper has even received unique “OVO” colorways of notable Air Jordan silhouettes from Jordan Brand. Yet, sneakerheads had probably not been expecting to see Drake wearing a remastered Air Jordan 4 “Oreo” pair, but it is still proof of how popular this colorway happens to be.
It was in Air Canada Centre during the Raptors-Nets game on February 5th, 2015 when Drake was spotted seated at courtside wearing the Air Jordan 4 “Oreo”, even though the pair has not been released yet. Someone, most likely accompanying Drake, was also spotted sitting beside him, wearing the Air Jordan 14 “Black Toe.” Considering that this year’s iteration is a remastered retro, it will be made up of the same buttery black leather as the original with hints of white.
Indeed, 23isBack readers should probably not expect the Air Jordan 4 “Oreo” to arrive at retailers before February 21st, 2015. However, they likely have plenty of other Jordan releases date 2015 to look forward to and even though they might not be comparable to Drake, they can still grab this new jordans early since it is available on eBay.
