Get ready for an ‘encore’ for the Air Jordan IV in 2012, because if 2011’s releases of the Air Jordan III is any indication of what’s planned, it’ll be OG heaven. The White/Cement IV and Military Blue joints are already confirmed (and the Bred IVs could possibly be a Black Friday 2012 release), so what Retro+ or Lifestyle colorways are there in store? An Air Jordan IV ‘Year of the Dragon’? Just reciting that phrase should send chills down your spine. Let’s take a look back at one of the sickest Air Jordans of all-time – the Eminem x Air Jordan IV; just fifty pairs exist and are in the hands of Eminem’s closest individuals as well as the utmost of sneaker collectors (even Jordan Geller has a pair displayed in his ShoeZeum). We can thank Slim Shady’s relationship with Nike for this astounding sneaker, but let’s cross our fingers for a similar release in 2012 (the Knicks Spizikes came pretty close). If you’re on that collector’s tip with disposable money, cop this size 14 pair right now from lilshk54321 on eBay.
Love te colorway one of the reasons I bought the blue spizikes that dropped cause it resembles the colorway on these. Wish JB would bring out a similar colorway next year
Dang, i need a 12. I love this cw. Not too fussed about the Eminem connection though. Can they bring out a GR in this cw or what?
smh... Only 50 pairs made and JB cant even use paint with a flex additive. Stop the crack JB especially if you are gonna keep raising prices! I bet the Flight 89's dropping this summer will go crack free way longer the all the IV's dropping this year! Dope shoe tho...
you can tell by the prices none of these resellers want to part ways with their rare heat unless someone pays a ridiculous price like this. but hey can you blame him?
well like i said, if you were as rich as me....4,500$ wouldn't be shit! so how about you get off sneaker news and never get back on.....complainer!!!
...Or used. Does he really expect anyone to spend that much cash on a pair of pre-owned sneakers? That's ridiculous. Even a wealthy collector (the only person this auction would appeal to) would never consider purchasing these. As much as I am disgusted at his blatant display of "showing off," I will confide and say that I respect the fact that he would ever wear these in the first place. That's a true sneakerhead.
Why wouldnt he wear them? What would you do, buy them and put your pair of SHOES in a display case or something? lol. And how is it showing off? its an ebay listing, he trying to sell them. And also, dont we ALL show off our shoes.... when we wear them. Which is why we collect in the first place. Weird. If these were a 12 in my size, or even close. Id be wearing these down to the shops as we speak. And the point someone made about this sale catering only to the "celebrity" sneakerheads... someone like Wale/DJ Clark Kent etc... they probabaly wouldnt think twice about paying this ridiculous price. They are the ones that inflate the re-seller game and why next time these will be asking double that price. They'll be like, "here, just make it an even $5K... aint no thang."
