As of lately, Jordan Brand seems to have been quite enthusiastic about experimenting. This year, they introduced the Pinnacle collection as a result of which the Air Jordan 1 High ended up receiving never-before-seen premium treatment. Jordanheads were somewhat unfamiliar with the designs and materials that their favorite brand utilized for the Air Jordan 1 High Pinnacle releases, despite their hefty retail price of $400. For a while, it almost seemed like the Pinnacle series is on a brief hiatus. However, if there is any truth behind this photo shared by Instagram user @realchickenwop, this means next year could mark the Jordan releases of a first-ever Air Jordan 4 Pinnacle featuring pony hair.
This year there seems to be a trend of luxury sneakers, considering how many luxe and premium models have been designed by fashion houses in recent times. Prior to the Pinnacle series, a couple of luxury sneaker models sporting off-court style had also been introduced by Jordan Brand as well. However, they really wowed their loyal fans when they paid a tribute to their own legacy by incorporating premium elements into the first silhouette they had produced. This is how the Air Jordan 1 Pinnacle sneakers came to be, dressed up in upscale materials like python leather, stingray, etc.
This will be the first time that the Air Jordan 4 will be receiving the Pinnacle treatment. The upper and even the lining of this Air Jordan 4 Pinnacle iteration are made up of tumbled leather, which is dressed up entirely in black. Raising the premium appeal of this sneaker to a whole new notch, black faux pony hair can also be spotted all over its tongue. Finally, the collar is covered in exotic embossing and the sneaker is also equipped with wax laces, which add the finishing touch. Since a Jordan release 2016 is being speculated for this Air Jordan 4 Pinnacle rendition, Jordanheads would want to start saving since they may have to pay up to $400 in order to cop it.
