Last week, Jordan Brand caused a lot of hype with the release of the M11, the 11th iteration of the Air Jordan Melo, which many 23 is Back readers may have copped. However, Jordan Brand is all set to take the sneaker community by storm once again as they kick start their “Re-Mastered” program by dropping the re-mastered retro Air Jordan 4 “Legend Blue.” One of the 2015 Jordan releases that will be marking the retail debut of the first re-mastered Air Jordan retro sneaker has finally arrived.
Many of the 23isBack readers are probably old-school fans of Jordan Brand, who have been purchasing Air Jordan sneakers ever since they could only wear GS sizes and when Michael Jordan was still in the NBA. It was Jordanheads like these who rightfully claimed that Air Jordan sneakers did not possess the same quality as they once did. The first Air Jordan had hit the shelves in 1985. While the prices of the sneakers have risen substantially ever since, the quality of the leather, rubber, and suede had apparently dropped.
Fortunately, Jordan Brand was not going to sit still and let the integrity of this prestigious brand be questioned, so the “Re-mastered” program was announced. As a result, construction and fabrics featured by this year’s retro sneakers will possess the same high-quality as their original iterations did.
Since the Air Jordan 4 “Columbia” or “Legend Blue” is the first re-mastered retro of 2015, this means that it has been designed to have the same beautiful, pebble grain, premium, tumbled white leather as the OG from 1999. The sneaker, which had originally been designed by Tinker Hatfield, will also feature Legend Blue and Midnight Navy to complement the colorway.
Hopefully, these upgraded materials will last longer and withstand more wear and tear, but it is very likely that 23 is Back readers will try their best to ensure that the pair remains as white as it is when they first get their hands on it. January 10th, 2015 was one of the Jordan release dates 2015 that was announced for the retail debut of the Air Jordan 4 “Columbia” or “Legend Blue” and that date is finally here.
