Air Jordan IV Military 2012 Sample
If 2011 is any indication of how Jordan Brand will handle its retro releases, then prepare for an onslaught of Air Jordan IV OG colorways in 2012. What’s been confirmed thus far? The White/Cements, which we all are dying to grab a hold of, and the Military Blues, which may still be fresh in our memories considering they dropped back in 2007. This shot if the 2012 Sample version of the Military IV shows very few differences between the 2007 Retro, although Niketalk member kimchee2go mentions that the ‘wings’ aren’t plastic, but a leather-y material. Another notable discrepancy is that the 2012 Retro is slated to retail for $160 – $45 more than the 2007 retail price. Now that won’t settle so easily in our stomachs, now would it? Check out the additional shot after the jump and let us know if you plan on copping these, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more information as it drops.
Air Jordan IV Retro
White/Neutral Grey-Military Blue
Everyone complaining about leather wings needs to STFU. It's n00bs like yourselves who beg for retros to even come out because you started buying Jordan's 4 years ago -_-. I'm happy they don't have plastic straps and hope it stays that way. It shows me you n00bs never had the OG to being with.
Easy pass...i'm not the kinda dude who's on Jordan's dick i like to keep an open mind and with the prices going up/quality down this peice of shieet is not even worth it. white/cement 4's next year and that's it
First of all 06 retros shit all over these just like the black metalic 5's and I dont know if anyone else noticed but in the bigger picture it looks like the bottom of the grey/white/orange retro 12
all i know is that my military iv retro from 2007 are still holding up and ive been wearing them twice a month since then ; if quality is similar then jb has my vote ; and i dont think every show released this year was horrible quality ; 3's were okay ; cardinal 7's were good . . i dont know maybe its just me but i think jb is doing alright
I cant wait for a former sneakerhead to take control of JB. maybe he can set shit straight with all the fuck ups.
damn 06 retros were $115.... that's how much i got them for including shipping/tax i mean yeah JB knows they can still over price things because people will still buy them, but placing them at $160 is absolutely outrageous. i think it's disrespectful because it's blatant evidence that JB knows they can cheat people's money and have no problem trying to hide it at all
Not a fan, it may be an og colorway but they look like fakes due to the lack of color blocking 2 colors on the upper just looks unfinished. Need at least 3 colors with correct placement for j's to look correct imo.
Wow getting rid of the plastic wings really?! I hope it's just this sample if not so far I'll pass on these and the white/cement if they don't have black specs.
My 07 plastic wings crumbled off. Maybe the leather will last better. Jeez, sometimes change is good people.
im better off getting the 2007 retros instead of these..JB is already getting a good cut with that $45 gap price anyways.. plus i 100% agree with the whole issue about the strap/wings. Keep it OG.
Who gives a f*ck if it's plastic or leather I got so many kicks they'll get worn maybe once a month some of you sneakerheads are f*cking nerds and complain about the dumbest sh*t
$160 is rough. Gotta see the quality on the white/cement IV's dropping before I make my decision on any future IV's
I love all IV's (because they (Fire Red's) were my first pair if J's in 1989/Freshman year of H.S.)and especially ORIGINAL colorways, but that leather strap/wing is NOT doing it!!! I want them to keep the ORIGINAL plastic strap/wing, since this is an ORIGINAL colorway. I never really tripped on leather straps/wings, because they ONLY put them on retro + colorways. Now they're trying to do this to the ORIGINALS...? Nah, I'm not digging it. Keep everything just like the picture, but give us the plastic straps/wings and I'm all in.
hey hey hey , how come that front toe part aint grey suede? why is it white leather? And for $160??? goddayumm!
At the same times there are so manual possibility that can be done. Some many textures and things that's they can do. The only thing I don't understand is the quality. But jordan hasn't been around long and there are some many things that can be don't. Just let them do it if u don't like them don't get ut them. Simple
umm idgaf!! whos in it with me but straight up jb thinks they can go ahead and do wtf they want now cuz they know yal retards is ganna buy them anyways so even if its only me to stop coppin for 160$ ooh well fuck that 160$ is stupid as hell watch soon there ganna bee to 180 and shit ridiculous then 11s are ganna bee like 210 and shit fuck u jb
