While a certain subsection of purists may have a hard time swallowing new looks like the Air Jordan IV ‘Knicks’ that we recently let out of the bag, you’ll be hard pressed to find anybody within the wide landscape of the internet that can deny the beauty of this upcoming Air Jordan IV retro. With the long-awaited return of the White/Cement colorway just over a week away, we’ve got another quick set of photos to get your mouth watering. The only question is, with them dropping in the middle of the so-called ‘Hottest Month Ever’, will they be easier to lockdown than previous grails given the busy release schedule? Let us know what you think in the comments below and get yourself ready for this massive Air Jordan IV release. via AGS
Air Jordan IV
The sneaker game is getting outta hand. There almost is no point to collecting anymore. Olympic 7's dropped last year on a friday, really tight release. I paid $300 to buy em on Ebay, just to have them come out a year later?? JB is creating its own self destruction smh. Pretty soon theyll be retro Spizikes. Much love to the younger sneakerheads. We all equal.
disappointed in the quality to say the least. I dont understand how everyone is content with buying less and less quality retros since that price increase.
Im a 15 year old sneakerhead and i really look up to older sneakerheads, but reading alot of these comments makes me question that. I honestly have a passion for shoes, so please dont say we're all out here for the hype. And how are we out here to ruin the game? If you want to blame anyone, blame the reseller's who buy multiple pairs and charge double or triple of the original price. And with the whole thing about people complaining about kids waiting in line with they're moms, really? WE'RE KIDS STILL. I dont have much of an income so i cant pay for all of my shoes like a 30 year old man can. And im not a spoiled kid, i either buy or earn every single pair of shoes that i own. Please just understand and stop bashing on my generation.
Imean ill put it like this is its a lot of corny young cats out there hyping up regular ass kicks for no apparent reason in my opinion. But it is wut it is I guess. In my day u ain't have to line up and fight for a damn shoe that's just wack. But back to topic these are fresh as hell my dude who manages at the FTL Corp. Showed me a pair and there beautiful from the shoe to the box they come in foreall
looks cheap that sucks when they are 60.00 higher than og days remember these are made by people making crap wage its all bs now adays
I hate re-sellers. They make the shoe sell out faster for people who want to actually wear them, and they tax the hell out of them. Greedy F***s. I, will be copping ONE pair.
I'm 14 and I'm really looking forward to these shoes... Why ya'll gotta hate though? I'm sure you asked YOUR parents to buy your first pair of J's. Don't tell me you've never had your parents buy you a pair of shoes you really wanted. And besides, you gotta start somewhere right? Are you telling me that I can't buy a shoe that I think looks sick because I'm not "old enough" to be a sneakerhead? Everyone says that my generation is ruining the shoe game, but it could definitely do without the hate from all of you "OG" sneakerheads who are too good for everyone else.
Finishline.com the night before I live in Mississippi and the competition to buy shoes at the store in the area I live in is too much hell cus I wear a 13 and they usually only get one in each store so I go online the night before at 10:50 and wait til 11:00 and order from Finishline.com and usually get'em that Monday or Tuesday
I like that you have to try hard to cop these. If they were easy it wouldn't be any fun. I'm 35 I've been buying sneakers since 1992. Much respect to the new generation getting into the shoe game.
If I can't get these and I see a little 13 year old with his mom holding his hand walk out of a shoe store with a pair, I'm going to go insane! Nothing against young shoeheads. It just kills me that these kids have their mommies camp out with them and buy their shoes for them. If you can't afford em yourself, dont buy em.
Honestly if you got a problem with young kids coppin shoes and being in the shoe line b4 you either get there earlier or order your Jays online at Finishline.com like i do Its real simple and easy so you wont have to complain because everybody like Jordan now....and these are copped!!!
I hope these are a little easier to get because most people want the all star pack or the galaxy foams so that could mean shorter lines I just want to get my pair so I can look fresh on the beach with my girl for her bday.
I want these so bad! I'm gonna wait in line at Nike Town and order online just to make sure. please i just want one i don't want to resell them just have 1 pair for my self is that so much to ask? im sick of hype beasts and re sellers! get a F*UCKING job ghetto ass fools!
Man. All y'all gettin excited for these. I haven't seen a negative comment yet. Not on the look anyways but people dissin the quality as usual. These started out as being my favorite lookin Jordan sneakers, but can't cop this time. Smh. Imma be sorry if I miss out on these collectors. Had a fake pair in 9th grade and everyone mentioned about em. STILL. lol. Hopefully a cop on eBay or other online dealer somewhere else later on but times is too ruff right now though.. Good year to have money! Lol
Well i'll get two pair. Seems like baltimore aka dmv and florida is only getting da galaxy foams @ HoHs smh online sucks. Crashes too much!
One of the very, very best comments on Sneakernews! I'm 31 years old and I agree with you 100%. I was once in your shoes so I can fully relate to you. Just because someone is young or younger than you does not mean they are any less in love with kicks. I'm not sure why this site involves so much "bashing" of someone who is different than you when in reality, we ALL SHARE a passion and LOVE for sneakers. I personally don't even hate on re-sellers because I know some and it's a HUSTLE and GRIND for them. These guys work hard and in the end, provide the goods to many people who can't even obtain the kicks to begin with due to their location. Either way, I respect anyone who loves shoes because it's an addiction and love I share, no matter the race or age or gender. I went a little rampant just now haha peace!
true dat yo. These older guys who are think they're so entitled and think someone should hand them sneakers because they've been sneakerheads for a long time. Bump that man, they need to get their ass in line like the rest of us. If they have a problem with "hype" and want to bitch about it, then they don't deserve it. If it weren't for the hype, they wouldn't be getting the shoes anyway. Don't listen to the old ass losers here and enjoy your hobby. If you like shoes and you need someone to buy it for you cuz you don't make money yet, then so be it. F*** those other guys who complain about young sneakerheads!
You sound like an idiot by just saying the word "sneakerhead". I'm not against people who buy Jordans as long as they know a decent amount about MJ. You can be 10 and I ould care less but at least know something about the person who the shoe is named after. If your only reason for getting Jordans is because "they look sick" the you're an idiot.
Aye you are soo right they think that certain shoes are only for "O.G. Sneakerheads" and I always thought that a sneakerhead was somebody who liked shoes. What us young folk can't be a so called sneakerhead? # water tower swagg gang # findlay prep swagging
you sound like a hypocrite because I'm more than positive that was you at one point except you probably saw jordan play which is the only difference between old heads and these kids who buy outta hype. just relax
They just werent included in the pic relax yo. JB doesnt even have the hang tags in the pic. It still come with it
Growing up, I had to get my shoes from payless or target. Even in middle school, I rocked shell toes, cuz they were cheap and decent looking. In highschool, I would save up money from birthdays and christmas. I would either blow it on shoes or hustle it back for more. So I can appreciate the value of a dollar. The point I was trying to make in my previous comment is that, these little kids are growing up like spoiled brats and probably never have to work for what they have. They just ask their parents for money to buy whatever they want. Back when I was a kid, My mom would killme if I asked for 175 for a pair of sneakers.
