Sneaker News just revealed images described by a phrase that many sneakerheads have been eagerly awaiting for almost seventeen years: Air Jordan XI ‘Blackout’. That sample pair is generating quite a buzz, and there’s another recent black-uppered Air Jordan revelation with a black upper that’s also causing a stir in the community. Coming the wake of the ‘Knicks Pack’ Spiz’ikes and a couple of orange-and-blue-accented releases for this spring is another Air Jordan IV for 2012, a black nubuck design that’ll have you scratching your head when you realize these are basically only one color away from last fall’s wacky Doernbecher x AJ4. It looks like we won’t have to fear that these are a Spike Lee ‘PE’ this time around, so that leaves the question: when is the Air Jordan IV ‘Knicks’ release date? Stick with Sneaker News to find out, and check out a new set of images in the meantime. via Air-Randy
they look pretty clean although i do think they would look better with a white base i would consider copping these if the release date is'nt close to another shoe on my list and if i have some xtra cash i guess we'll see
these are cold to me and Im coppin thats a sick colorway I can dress these up real nice or keep it simple
Def coppin these. When the Doernbecher released back during the holidays I thought it was just too much and wish they had toned it down just a little bit, now I get my wish. These are gonna look dope, and Im really glad that JB is trying something a little different. We all know the IV's look hella ill, so why not see what JB can do with that base and a some new colorways. It cant be any worse then what they did with some of the new VI colorways from back in 2010 right? lol
over it...still can't help but feel like i'm looking at a GS...maybe if they did it like the spizikes and made the upper blue or orange.
okay dont say anything negative about these or new york people are gonna hate me lol so....umm it'll be cool if melo hooped in these for a game
Does anyone think Jordan brand has been slacking on the suede like it attracts so much lint and prints? Anyone who that has had a pair of OG Bred 4's please reply.
not a fan of this specific color way BUT i do like how the kept the pull tap rubber and the wings plastic. im personally not a fan of the fabric versions of the wings and pull tab.
I agree. Originally I said they should release these in the old Cleavland Cavs colors just because of "The Shot" I was kinda joking but now that i see the orange and blue i really wish they went with the white instead of black and completed the Cavs cw Woulda looked better IMO
ultra pass no thanks these are ganna get linty then a beetch! real talk and that make em ugly then look at the net on the 1st pic it looks caved in....SMH no thanks pass
