It was near the end of February this year when rumors began circulating that the Jordan LAB series would be getting a new installment in the form of a new model, the 11LAB4. The nickname of this silhouette probably makes it obvious that it is a combination of the Air Jordan 4 and 11, two of the most iconic sneakers Jordan Brand has ever introduced. The 11LAB4 is slated to hit the shelves in its debut “Black Patent” colorway on of the last few Jordan release dates 2015 of this month.
There was a time when hybrid Air Jordan sneakers used to be exceptionally scarce and collectors had to fight tooth and nail to get their hands on a pair. Now that Jordan Brand has their own line of hybrids, it should be obvious that mash-up sneakers like these are very popular today and sneakerheads are eager to cop the latest rendition. Rumors of the 11LAB4’s arrival was the first sign that Jordan Brand had no intention of bringing the “LAB” series to an abrupt halt. At first glance, the 11LAB4 could be mistaken for an Air Jordan 4, but upon closer inspection, the lustrous patent leather that the upper is dressed up in resembles that featured on the Air Jordan 11’s midsole.
The entire upper of this Jordan 11LAB4 colorway is made up of Black patent leather with Black mesh at the sides and below the tongue. Even the soles are black with the exception of the heel portion where the Nike Air unit is present, which is covered in White and adds some contrast to this new jordans. Even the Jordan Jumpman logos at the back and on the tongue are camouflage with the same Black patent leather as the rest of the sneaker.
Jordanheads are probably relieved that 11LAB4 is almost here. In fact, if they are willing to spend, they just need to wait for April 25th since it is one of this month’s Jordan release dates 2015 announced for the retail debut of the Air Jordan 11LAB4 “Black Patent.”
