Arguably Union Los Angeles had the best collaboration of 2018 with the launch of its two Air Jordan 1. These color combinations featured elements of some of Jordan 1’s most classic offerings, and fans were extremely eager to get some pairs. In fact, these pairs cost hundreds of dollars on the resale market, as they were rare and highly sought after. Now, the two sides come together once again two years later, this time to collaborate on Air Jordan 4. Today we have a first look at one of the two-color scheme releases.
Air Jordan 4
This Air Jordan 4 in collaboration with Union features a mesh and nubuck construction on the upper with a dark navy that dominates most of the shoe and royal blue in the ankle/heel area. White and red eyelets, white mesh panels on the tongue and side panels, translucent wings, a black tongue on the heel with the red Nike Air branding and the “AIR JORDAN” branding on the outer tongue traditionally seen on the inner tongue.
As for the design, the pair ostensibly emulates the AJ1 mentioned above only through color, as open seams and vintage pilling are properly abandoned. Key details A whitish / sail sole and sole, a Union x Jumpman hangtag, a special Union branded box and Michael Jordan’s hands complete it all. This tone then works its way up to the “AIR JORDAN” patch, the appearance of which is relatively rare, as it would normally be located on the inner tongue.
This collaboration is certainly unorthodox and the materials used are unique to Air Jordan 4. So far, the reactions have been quite mixed, although once the official images are shown, this sentiment could change.
At the moment, both colors of the Union x Air Jordan 4 are expected to come out on August 15 for $ 250 each. Be sure to keep it locked on our Union x Air Jordan 4 center page for the latest release info, images, and other updates.
