Official Images of the Air Jordan 4 “Military Black”
As far back as October 2021, rumours and leaked images of an Air Jordan 4 ‘Military Black’ – a tweaked take on the classic Air Jordan 4 ‘Military Blue’ – have been making the rounds, with a June 2022 release date often floated. Now, with that speculated date of arrival drawing ever closer, official images of the ‘Military Black’ have been revealed.
Jordan Brand’s memo for this fresh-yet-familiar Air Jordan 4 must have been to make it as close to the ‘Military Blue’ as possible while swapping blue for black. Everywhere blue was placed on the ‘Military Blue,’ from the midsole to the eyestays, heel tab and tongue branding, there’s black here. The same goes for white and grey, as the top half is constructed entirely of white leather with grey accents seen on the mudguards, ‘wings’ and outsole.
The only slight difference is the above-mentioned mudguard, which offers a different grey shade and a more shaggy construction than the ‘Military Blue.’ Frankly, this is for the better: the last time the ‘Military Blue’ was released was back in 2012, and the quality of Air Jordan retros has improved leaps and bounds since then! A special speckled box completes the offering.
Expect the Air Jordan 4 ‘Military Black’ to release on June 25, pending official confirmation from Nike.
