Will Mark Wahlberg‘s latest exculsive sneaker from Jordan Brand end up joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018? It likely will not. Being one of Michael Jordan’s oldest friends and having a longstanding relationship with Jordan Brand certainly seem to have its perks. They apparently include receiving exclusive Air Jordan colorways every now and then. This indeed happens to be the case with Mark Wahlberg, who is a diehard Air Jordan fan with a collection worth envying. Although the photo at the top is a recent one, the Air Jordan 4 “Wahlburgers” PE you see in it was actually first seen earlier this year back in June.
An Overview of Mark Wahlberg’s Sneaker Collection
During a 2015 episode of his reality television series Wahlburgers, Mark Wahlberg showed two custom Air Jordan 1 colorways that he proposed to be a part of his family restaurant’s standard dress code. According to an estimate by Campless, a sneaker data website, Mark Wahlberg’s sneaker collection back in 2015 was worth nearly $100,000. Back in 2016, Mark received an Air Jordan 11 Suede pair from Jordan Brand. Last year, he also designed three different colorways of the Jordan Formula 23. Mark Wahlberg wore the Air Jordan 4 PE you see here earlier this year at Minnesota’s Mall of America during the grand opening of a Wahlburgers restaurant there.
Mark Whalberg’s Air Jordan 4 “Whalburgers” PE Has Arrived For Friends & Family
In the caption accompanying the photo above on Instagram (@markwhalberg), Mark thanked Jordan Brand’s Director of Entertainment Marketing, Reggie Saunders. As you can see, this Air Jordan 4 PE appears to have suede uppers. Several shades of Green appear over this iteration, in addition to Black– and White-colored detailing in order to match the restaurant’s color scheme. The Whalburgers “W” logo can also be spotted on both of the tongues. As mentioned, this PE is for family and friends only so it will not be joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018. Perhaps it may hit the shelves next year for the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4.
