Ever since 2014, Jordan Brand has established a trend of dropping premium sneakers and this time the Jumpman are planning to upgrade the materials of the Air Jordan 4 with its latest release. 2015 marked the 30th Anniversary of both the Air Jordan 1 and Jordan Brand themselves. To commemorate their 30 years of excellence, Jordan Brand had introduced “Premium” variations of the Air Jordan 1, which were basically premium editions of the first Air Jordan model with hints of gold and unique packaging. Now, the first “Pinnacle” Jordan release dates of this year is slated to take place very soon.
Much like Kobe Bryant is known the “Black Mamba,” similarly “The Black Cat” is/was one of Michael Jordan’s numerous nicknames. Apparently, this is the source of inspiration behind the premium upcoming Air Jordan 4 “Pinnacle,” which will apparently have black pony hair as a part of its construction. Despite featuring pony hair, the all-Black sneaker reflects the elegance yet ferociousness of a black cat. The latest photos of the sneaker that have emerged online were likely taken at Kicks Lab Volume 5. It is even being rumored that this sneaker could actually be a customized version.
As mentioned, this Air Jordan 4 Pinnacle is an all-Black sneaker. The upper of this sneaker is made up of premium textured leather, which is dressed up in Black. Its upper is also further topped with Black-colored faux pony hair, which can particularly be spotted on its tongue and its vamp section. The only exception in its all-Black color scheme is its midsole and its outsole, both of which are covered in White. Another premium element that this sneaker consists of is its Black waxed laces. While there are still doubts about whether or not this is an official Air Jordan 4 rendition from Jordan Brand, nothing can be confirmed until a date is announced for its Jordan release 2016, which will hopefully take place.
